Best Fish and Chips Orange County 2009 - The Chippy Fish & Chips
You'd think it would be easy enough to find a fish-and-chip joint that uses real fish, not that cubed, reformed stuff sold by Sysco. But you'd be wrong. That's why the Chippy Fish & Chips is special. This fast-food stall, located in a food court a short walk from John Wayne airport, starts with the real stuff: hand-cut fish fillets dipped in a batter of their own making, then fried to a moist, supple, machine-unmolested flakiness. Sure, you can find seafood restaurants that do this, too, but then you can also go to England.
