This new fish-and-chips restaurant promises a taste of Britain in Manila

CargoFish is opening next month!

( While almost everyone is familiar with fish and chips, it can be pretty difficult to find a place in the Metro that serves it the way the British do. Fish and chips is more than a breaded fish fillet and side of crispy fries. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but if you want to have it the English way, you must have a lightly battered piece of cod, with a side of fries (or chips, in British English) that’s been seasoned with salt and malt vinegar, plus a side of tartar or curry sauce and a pickle garnish.


Fish and Chips


Did reading that make you hungry? There’s no need to fly out to the U.K. just to have fish and chips, because CargoFish is opening on April 4 at Uptown Mall. It promises to offer the classic pairing the way the British enjoy it, complete with a chip fork (yes, that’s a thing!).

Chefs and partners Matthew Hornsby-Bates and Matthew Lim aim to serve fish and chips that is as close to how they have it in the U.K. as possible, while also spicing it up a bit. Aside from cod, they’ll be offering other local fish too, and they go beyond chips with beer-battered onion rings and coleslaw. The best part? You can get a snack for as low as P75. We can’t wait!
