Feeling Chipper

When my cousin Mike told me about Eamonn’s Dublin Chipper, he did so in the same tone of voice that he uses to vehemently recommend his favorite beer or a great place to catch a pint. Something told me that he was absolutely right about the place, so my friend Jeff and I caught lunch there on Friday. How can I not love a place whose slogan is “Thanks Be To Cod”?



Please allow me to repeat that, because it bears repeating: Wow. It was very definitely the best fish & chips I’ve had on this side of the Atlantic, and quite possibly the best fish & chips, period. It’s a tiny little place, so be prepared to do the take-away thing as there are maybe 20 seats in the whole place. The ambience, though, is one of reverence for the product. These are folks who take seriously their craft of making good fish and chips. You can order by the piece, and the fries are not to be missed.

Best of all? It’s open late on the weeknights and weekends, so feel free to go out for a night on the town and then hit it up at midnight when you’re feeling the need for something to offset all the beer. Oh, and the best part? They have deepfried Snickers bars. Thanks be to Eamonn’s!

    OMFG – Screw pub quiz, I’m getting me a battered sausage tonight. Holy Mother of all things hangover food. I haven’t had a battered sausage since James’s Gate in Jamaica Plain. I could kiss you for this, but ya know, you’re wife’s close by ;O)

    While we often associate fish and chips with our European brethren – it is interesting to note the huge role Cod and Salt played in the development of our nation. The fishing and salt-making industries that developed to support European demands are detailed by Mark Kurlansky in two books that are great non-fiction reads. Highly reccomend them both – “The Cod’s Tale” and “Salt: A World Hitory.”
