THE DIGNITY, London, N3 1DH, 23 May 2014

Yey! Friday again folks,  ¡Feliz viernes!  This is not a Friday, but a Friday before bank holiday.  However, I am sooooo stressed.  I should have been here 3 hours ago.  Why our lives are getting so busy?!?!?

But... I am soooo stressed. I should have been here 3 hours ago.  Why our lives are getting so busy?!?!

Ahhhh, thirsty!!!  By the way who is the man behind me?

It is 9:30pm.  Kitchen will be closed at 10:00pm.  Quick, need to order!!! Woops, beer was great, perfect temperature with right amount of fizziness to take my stress away. 10/10!! Well done!

£11.75.  Slightly bullish price for zone 4.

Fish & Chips, – sustainabley cauught (obviously!) hake in cider & tarragon batter, double cooked chips£11.75. Slightly bullish price for zone 4.

In fact, this is a quite surprising price.  The Catcher in the RYE is only a few blocks down, offering fish and chips @£10.75.  However, it should not be too difficult to compete with quality, oh, am I mean to say this?

MMM... not a great first impression to be honest, looked small portion and all looked very brown. , the man is still behind me.

Could not quite pin-point but no wow factor on first sight.

Ah, how could I be so wrong... look at my face, all stress disappeared.  A man behind me still there.  Who are you?  I must admit I felt like I was spied all the time.   are you another fish and chips critic by any chance?

1. Fish : 6/10.  Batter was excellent.  Steamy hot, but fish was a bit “frakey” not as moist as how I want.  Is this because it was hake not haddock (which I love with skin of course!)?  Will somebody lecture me!
2. Chips 11/10!  This means 110%.  Absolutely delicious.  Every single bite I was saying “OISHII! (delicious in my language)”.  I often give away some of my chips but this time, I could have a whole another portion.  Absolutely exceeded my expectation.  Clearly prepared from scratch and wonderfully executed without any old frying oil.  Crisp, tasty, potatoiy, hot, cannot fault.
3. Peas: 6/10.  Usual crush peas.  Nothing wrong with them, butterly, pealy, but could have done with a hint of mint.

Overall great, I am scoring you generous 7/10 almost all because chips was divine.  Though well done mate.   We will be back.  No wonder you were so busy compared to your neighbour.

Good night!
