Battle of the Dishes

Gambling on Fish and Chips: Pick a Cod, Any Cod

Like bangers and mash or bubble & squeak, fish and chips is the kind of perfect pairing you'll find at any decent English pub. It's also the only way most parents can get their kids to eat fish -- because everything is better when battered and fried.

For this week's battle, we pitted the fish & chips at a local bar known for their beer batter against a similar offering at a quirky English pub slash takeout joint. Will the Americans best the Brits in a battle of fish & chips? We'll see.
