A Short History of Fish and Chips: The Iconic Comfort Food

Say what you like about fish and chips, sometimes this is the dish that hits the spot when you’re really hungry. Fortunately for the citizens of London, the capital abounds in fish and chip shops to suit all pockets and palates. Just as well – it’s an iconic dish. This is because, for many Brits, fish and chips are associated with happy memories. We’ve eaten them on beaches, in the street, at home or out in restaurants. Every seaside town boasts a good chippy. You can always find them, there’s a huge queue outside. It’s cheap fast food, and the capital is no exception in providing this delicious meal to the masses.

Regular readers of SEEN will know that we love the seasonality, freshness and sustainability of many food producers, restaurants, and pop ups that predominate in London (particularly over the summer months), so imagine our delight when we discovered what Caprera is all about.

Classic Meets Modern: SEEN Lunches at Hatchetts

SEEN was delighted to lunch in the cool basement restaurant of Hatchetts last Friday the 8th – the day of their launch. You’d never believe that busy Piccadilly was just a few steps away on one side and bustling Shepherds Market a few steps away on the other side. In fact Hatchetts seems so well–hidden that SEEN could imagine having a clandestine assignation with someone there.
