Where to Catch the Best Fish and Chips in Miami

Where to find Miami's finest fried fish

View as Map

While South Florida’s balmy temperatures, swaying palm trees, and obsession with Cuban coffee are staunch reminders we bare little resemblance to our British friends across the pond, we still hold a soft spot for that accent, the ever-intriguing Royal Family, and, of course, fish and chips.

The tradition of battered and fried fish is said to have been brought over to England in the late 1880s from Jewish immigrants from Spain and Portugal and eventually paired with French fries, or “chips.” The humble dish soon found its way in every British city and town, served on newspaper in local “chippys” and pubs.

We’ve gathered some of our favorite local spots to indulge in this finger-licking favorite.
