Fish and chips ascribe the success of their time-tested bond to their similarly crispy coatings and a serendipitous encounter on an online dating site. Celebrate perfect pairings with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of seafood and drinks at Kingsway Fish & Chips.
At Kingsway Fish & Chips, clients net fresh fish and homemade desserts prepared by four generations of family members from an eclectic menu. Fresh Alaskan halibut, hand-filleted in-house and bathed in a light English-style batter, joins forces with freshly chipped Ontario potatoes to fulfill a family recipe ($11.39; $10.39 with haddock). Six ounces of grilled rainbow trout lounges alongside a bed of rice or fries ($14.49), and seafood chowder and lobster bisque ($4.49–$5.49) keep stomachs as warm as Moby Dick's sauna. For dessert, butter tarts ($2.49) and old-fashioned rice pudding ($3.99) sweeten palates, and domestic and imported beer and wine keep diners hydrated between bites and comparisons of squid-calling technique. Large parties gather amid colourful booths, high-backed chairs, and walls sconces in the restaurant’s recently renovated, 110-seat space.
