Square Meal Review of Poppies Fish & Chips Spitalfields ?

The 2012 London Olympics may have help to regenerate east London, but there are some parts that don’t need a shot in the arm – witness Pat ‘Pop' Newland’s legendary family-run chippie. Step into Poppies' white-tiled premises, and you're overwhelmed by wartime memorabilia, newspapers from yesteryear and a classic jukebox – although the food never plays second fiddle to the nostalgia. Hot seafood platters and homemade fishcakes are warm-up acts for “beautifully and generously prepared” fish and chips from sustainable sources (with homemade tartare sauce), plus free-range rotisserie chicken, pies and pasties. Cheerful, nattily dressed waitresses are as sweet as can be, and you can even brush up on your Cockney rhyming slang by memorising the phrases emblazoned on the walls. Finish with Cartmel sticky toffee pudding or apple pie.

  1. There is a fashion for everything, including words which appear and disappear, even sometimes reinventing themselves. "Iconic" was resurrected a couple of years ago, since then one can't read an article without bumping into an iconic something or another. As if we lived in perpetual search of godlike figureheads. Problem is that when you real meet an icon which word do you use so that people recoil in horror or worse shut down completely. And what if you meet an icon who prepares an iconic dish. Then, you are in trouble of biblical proportion. Look at this picture and tell me that the dish doesn't qualify as iconic. Cod 'n Chips prepared and served the Poppies' way. And that is the best Fish & Chips in the UK. I know you are thinking "euuh! she is making it up again!" sorry to disappoint, I am not...
