The Frying Castle (Colchester, UK)
24B Long Wyre Street, Colchester, UK, T: 01206-616-505
The Frying Castle looks pretty nice for a British chip shop. It gets great reviews online, which lures me to the place. It has the usual staples of British ‘cuisine’: English breakfast, burgers, fries, deep fried sausages and fish, but also chicken, jackets, omelets, pies, and even salads.
I am getting the regular Fish & Chips (£7.45 or ca. $11.50). The fish is cod and its freshly prepared. It is lightly battered and tastes really fresh. Chips are prefab but quite crispy, particularly for the UK. Shame that all sauces are from jars, despite the fairly nice presentation.
While not cheap, this is some of the best fish and chips that I've ever had. Would be even better with homemade tartar sauce!
