The Henry Addington, Canary Wharf, London, E14 4PH, 25 January 2020

YOYOYO! A Happy new year to you all, it has been 6 years since I posted my very first Fish and Chips Critic in January 2014.  The main thing is, I am still here, critiquing.  I will survive, so I will ask you to “love me little, love me long”.

Here we are at Canary Wharf, cold night but buzzing with people enjoying Winter Lights.  After walking around Wharf for over an hour, we found ourselves in The Henry Addington.

Of course, our comfort food is THE FISH AND CHIPS! Simple Nicholson’s Fish and Chips, fillet of haddock hand-battered in our Nicolson’s Pale Ale and served with chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce for £14.  I was outraged back in 2014 for being charged £13, now £14 feels somehow normal.

So…. Normal look, did not excite me…

At glance, small portion

  1. Fish 3.5/10 : Dry flesh, very little flavour, batter too thick.  Luke warm
  2. Chips 3.5/10: Dry, no great texture (i.e, crunchy outside with fluffy potato substance) of enjoyment.  Luke warm
  3. Mushy peas 2/10: straight from the tin, stingy portion, Luke warm

Overall very very disappointed 3/10.  As you can see the common theme of this dish was “luke warm”.  In the cold evening after some walk, this could be the best comfort food which made my stomach warm and heat to travel all my body for warms, joy and satisfaction, which obviously did not happen.

I will go on critiquing, so please don’t give up on me!

See you soon, Hello 2020!
