Chippies” were a British classic pretty hard to find in Mexico City, but not anymore as Matt's Fish N' Chips just opened in the Roma neighborhood, Mexico City.

Its varied menu offers the British classics: Fish and chips—chippies to locals—, calamari, shrimps, sausages, baked beans, mashed potatoes, scotch pies, as well as other dishes such as burgers, and chicken tenders, along with plenty of sauces.

The menu features unique dishes like beer-flavored chips, curry sauce, steak and Guinness pies, kidney pies, as well as Habanero sauces.

They have a wide variety of beers, national and imported, as well as red and white wines. And for the non-drinkers, they always have the traditional Mexican aguas frescas!

Plus, everybody knows that a genuine order of fish and chips to take away is served wrapped in newspapers—and Matt's Fish N' Chips absolutely delivers.

They serve their chippies in a cone lined with newspaper and come with a lemon wedge and a decadent tartar sauce.

Their version is a wonderfully executed dish—considering that this English staple is a difficult dish to perfect—with the white fish perfectly moist and flaky while the batter remains airy and crispy, not at all greasy. Overall, a quite satisfying and different experience in the heart of Mexico City.

The crunchiness and flavor in every bite make this small restaurant the best option to try fish and chips in Mexico City!

And although it opened a few weeks ago, it has become a staple among neighbors, and even British expats, who can finally get a taste from home.

The atmosphere, the prices, and the customer service make  Matt's Fish N' Chips a great option for us Chilangos, especially when we're craving some good ol' fish & chips!
