Fish and chips is a well-known staple of British cuisine, and while the British troops colonized Canada well before the 20th century, this lovely dish still made its way to Montreal.
Brit & Chips' mission is to capture as authentically as possible the experience of a good old-fashioned "chippy" and add a tiny twist of Montreal's essence. The result? A delicious selection of six fishes dipped in just as many batters, from maple syrup to Guinness.
My favorite is the maple-syrup battered haddock with a generous side of fries and a traditional London Pride.

Brit & Chips
Designer fast food is an international trend that’s hit Montreal just as hard as anywhere else, but some spots go beyond trendiness. Brit & Chips is one of these places: they fry up an amazing classic British-style fish’n’chips with all the trimmings, but they also go way beyond that. The menu is full of different choices of fish and batters, and every day brings a new daily special – it could be Cajun style haddock, say, or tilapia in a quinoa batter. It’s guaranteed delicious, that’s for sure, and the golden, hand-cut fries are bar-none the best in the neighbourhood.
