The Best Fish & Chips in Toronto

The best fish and chips in Toronto come from kitchens that do not only one, but two great things right. Crispy battered fish and greasy artery-clogging chips go together like peanut butter and jam, milk and cookies, the CN Tower and the Rogers Centre, and fortunately this pairing can be found all over the city.

Here are the best fish and chips in Toronto.
