The Local

Fish and Chips

This past Friday was crazy. My family and I suffered from Spring fever because the weather was a perfect 10. So instead of ordering a late lunch, we all decided that a nice take-out dinner from the Local would do the trick. We had a craving for their fish and chips, and it was finally satisfied.

The Local has been on High Street in Mount Holly for a few years now, and the food is always fresh. In my opinion the Local is named after the people who patronize it, and the local ingredients that they use. Love a play on words like that!

If you are ever in the area, I cannot recommend the Local enough!

The Sandwich

Okay, so I did not order a sandwich. But the fish and chips were perfect. They were not greasy, the chips were fresh cut with the skin still on them, and they included malt vinegar, ketchup, and a remoulade sauce. Everyone’s tastebuds were taken care of!

The Taste

The fish was crisp, and the chips were the perfect ratio of skin to potato filling. I am a salt and vinegar gal when I comes to my fish and chips, so I always appreciate it when a pub can accommodate that! The fish was beer battered cod, which is traditional in my books. The only thing that would have been better is if I could have a) curry sauce with it and b) if it were served on newspaper. Other than that, it was fab.

Would I go back for another one this year?

Most definitely. I have had their fish tacos as well, so if you are looking for a more sandwich-y meal, I would go with that and ask for a side of fries or side salad!

Final Rating

5/5 – it is quite difficult find a solid fish and chips meal around here, and this is my top choice. Plus, they serve plenty of local craft brews that make the experience more “pub like” if you will.
