The Best Fish and Chips in Toronto

If you are looking for the best fish and chips in Toronto, look no further because we have got you covered!

This quintessential British dish is simple fare. Crispy battered white fish, deep-fried to a golden brown hue and thick-cut fried chips paired with an acidic slaw and creamy tartare sauce make for an indulgent and comforting meal. Although the humble dish's history remains uncertain, it is said that fish and chips were introduced to Britain in the 17th century by Jewish immigrants from Spain and Portugal. The dish was typically sold by street vendors to feed the hungry, working-class folks during World War I. Traditionally wrapped in old newspapers for cost reasons, the history of fish and chips is widely debated but still to this day remains a staple dish in Britain.

As part of the Commonwealth, it is no surprise that Toronto is home to some excellent fish and chip shops. There are plenty of options scattered across the city, from the more modern restaurant serving cod tacos and grilled pickerel salads to the traditional family-run joints doling out mushy peas and meat pies.
