Best fish and chips in SLC

The following are some of my personal favorite fish and chip preparations around the Wasatch Front. As a passport-holding Brit, take it from me, I have several strong opinions about this particular dish.

When I stopped by the Sandy location of this boutique brand in the Spring of 2024 to check out some seasonal specials – I was blown away by the restaurant’s fish and chips. The star of the show is the beer batter, a gossamer thin and light with a sharp crackle and snap. The interior cod remains plenty juicy and flaky too. On the side, seasoned fries are a must. The laser sharp tartare sauce goes a long way to cutting through this hefty freid plate too.

This trio of deep-fried cod pieces is courtesy of the Sugar House microbrewery. The dish isn’t always available but when it is, it’s worth a look in. It’s slightly pricey at $18 but the fish isn’t overcooked and the batter is rewardingly crisp. The sides of tartar and fry sauce should put a smile on everyone’s face.
