London Bridge Pub
256 Figueroa St., Monterey, 372-0581
Originally served wrapped in a page of the London Times newspaper, fish and chips has a long and revered history. Most observers agree that there are four secrets at work with super fish-‘n’-chips DNA, and London Bridge has ’em all: flaky Icelandic cod, served up moist and fresh. Check. A beer-batter that evenly coats the fish and comes up all fluffy. Check. House-made tartar. Check. And crispy, hot French fries, for dipping in the tartar sauce, New England-style. Checkmate, bloke.
