Have you been in the mood for some exceptional fish and chips and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get the classic dish?

Since there is no shortage of selection in the GTA, the choice as to where to dine can be a tough one—especially when places that serve delicious fish and chips are plentiful across cities. 

When it come to great fish and chips, every ingredient counts. Is the batter crispy and flavourful? Is the fish tender and fried to perfection? Are the fries soft and savoury? Is the coleslaw on point. 

Both Mississauga and Brampton are known for their respective food scenes and both offer a ton of commendable fish and chips joints—but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots. 

What places were competing?
