Acclaimed around the country as having some of the best fish-and-chips available, this take-out–style eatery often has queues out the door. Buy deep-fried fish, served with a big side of perfectly cooked chips and a big chunk of lemon, and eat them out of the paper at one of the outdoor tables. You'll never want to eat fish-and-chips with a knife and fork again. But watch the seagulls, who also seem to like fish and chips—a lot.
