Singapore Eats: Ahoy British Fish & Chips at Smiths, Boat Quay

While we were wandering around Boat Quay, we spotted Smiths who claims to serve the authentic British fish and chips. Having studied in Newcastle before, I am quite interested to see an authentic British fish and chips in the island of Singapore. After psyching my walking buddy, we decided to give it a try.

Smiths is located alongside Boat Quay and if you can secure an al-fresco table, you can dine while enjoying the view of Singapore River.

I remember back in the UK, the choice of fish for fish and chips is either haddock or cod. Both are quite affordable in the UK but here, in Singapore, both fishes cost a bomb. The standard cod and haddock fish costs S$19.50. But since there's no way the fish & chips is gonna be authentic if we order dory, we decided to give haddock fish & chips a try. Look wise, it's pretty close to the real ones which I used to eat in UK but the taste is not really as good. Although I notice that there is less oil spotted on this Singapore version. The one I ordered in a fish & chips kiosk in Newcastle always drenched in oil (and hence, yummy?). #goforoilyfishandchips

We also ordered Chicken and Mushroom Pie to try. Taste quite so-so. It costs S$9.50 and it is served with thick fries too just like the fish and chips. 

There are some unique desserts sold at Smiths such as battered MARS bars. If your heart cannot take it, alternatively, you can hang out at the neighboring The Connoiseur Concerto (TCC).
