There’s few things more quintessential than tucking into some fish and chips with a view of the water, so White Beard Fish n Chips is one of our favourites in the city. It also helps that this place is seriously good value for money, with prices starting at just $68 for its signature fish n chips. Seating is pretty much non-existent, so unless you’re about to hop on the ferry to TST, we recommend walking along the pier to Beer Bay, where you can couple your food with one of the cheapest pints in the city.

A favourite spot for Brits in the 852, The Globe is known to be about the closest thing you can get to a proper pub here in Hong Kong, so it’s only right that it also serves up a mean fish and chips. The Beer Battered Fish Fillet ($175) is served with chips, mushy pea and tartar sauce for a traditional take on the classic dish. Wash it down with one of The Globe’s many beers and you’re in for a good night.

If you’re escaping the hustle and bustle of city living in Sai Kung, make sure to try out Chip In Fish & Chips. The small takeaway joint offers a range of options, but The Classic Fish and Chips is our top choice ($75). There’s limited seating, so we suggest taking away and eating your haul by the pier with a view of the water. Watch out for the deep fried Oreos here as well, if you’re after an indulgent end to your meal.

Located in the Mid-Levels, Hooked offers up New Zealand style fish and chips, but is also home to a fresh seafood market that sells a wide variety of wild, sustainable and line caught fish direct from New Zealand, including shellfish, smoked fish, mussels, clams, oysters and more. If you don’t fancy taking the fresh fish away and cooking it up at home, we recommend going for the Battered Hoki ($55) or Blue Cod ($75) for the best experience, as the other fish on offer are breadcrumbed. Couple your order with a scoop of chips ($20) and you’re set.

Complete with a perfect view of the harbour, Fish & Chick is the place to head to in K-Town if you’re in the mood for fish and chips. Prices here vary depending on which fish you go for (with a selection of halibut, hake, monk fish, haddock, cod and more available!), or if you’ve got someone who isn’t a fish fan in your group, there are also plenty of “chick” options on the menu. On a hot and sunny day, there’s nothing better than chilling out here for a while and enjoying some good old comfort food – and don’t forget to try the homemade ginger beer, too!

We’re big fans of Three Blind Mice, which is tucked away from the busy Wan Chai streets, so we recommend heading here for its casual European dining style. Go for the Deep Fried Barramundi, with chips, mushy peas and tartar sauce ($148), which is available on both the lunch and dinner menu. You can also find the barramundi fish goujons with tartar sauce as a starter on the set lunch menu, which is great value at $118 per person for three courses.

With a name like FRITES, it’s not surprise that this Belgian resto serves up a mean fish and chips.
