Smiths Authentic British Fish And Chips, more commonly known as simply Smiths, first opened its doors in Singapore in September 2010. Styled after the typical British English "Chippy", or Chip Shop, commonly found throughout England and the United Kingdom, Smiths specialises in serving classic English Fish And Chips, done in the traditional style. Even though I've patronised them since the beginning, I've only just realised that I've never blogged about Smiths!

Ambience at Smiths is casual, resembling a traditional British Chippy. A large glass counter displays the food, while British flags fly from the rafters. Furniture is casual and simple, as befits Smiths dine-and-dash style of fast food. Colour themes of white against wood lend a clean, modern atmosphere, while bright ambient lighting and an open concept lend a sense of homely comfort.

Service at Smiths is largely self-service. You order, make payment, and collect your food at the counter. Clearing your own tables is encouraged as well. Otherwise, interaction with staff is mostly limited to ordering, but I find them able to communicate well, and knowledgeable on the various types of fish offered on the menu. Overall, decent service for a fast food / takeaway style place.

Food at Smiths revolves around various types of fish in their Fish And Chips. I like that their fish is fresh, and the batter isn't too thick, still retaining a crisp crunch while not being too oily. Besides fish, they also have a small selection of other items on the menu, such as chicken or seafood. Portions are large for 1 person, and prices reflect the good quality of food here, expect to pay about SGD $28 or so per person for a meal.

The Beer Adnams Ghost Ship (SGD $11.50) is named for the 600-year-old The Bell pub, located in the village of Walberswick, in Suffolk, England, which is reportedly haunted. A pale, cloudy amber ale, with tastes of malt, hops and bread, an aroma of citrus fruits and apple, with a light, clean texture and slightly bitter finish.

The authentic British Fish And Chips typically use either cod or haddock, as these are common across England. Here, it's served with the traditional thick cut style English chips, that have a good potato flavour, on a crinkly wrapping paper that is supposed to resemble newspaper, giving diners the familiar sight and smell of a Chippy. The Fish And Chips Cod (SGD $19.50) features a flaky fillet of cod fish, while the Fish And Chips Haddock (SGD $19.50) features the more firm haddock fish. Both are very fresh and well fried, with a thin, crisp batter.

The most common fish used in Fish And Chips in Singapore is dory, and here, you'll be able to get the Fish And Chips Dory (SGD $15.50) as well. This is probably the most familiar tasting fish to Singaporeans, and because it's more readily available here, the cheapest as well. A large, fresh fillet of dory fish is used, coated in the same great tasting, thin, crisp batter.
