Our London Correspondent Olesya Nova says: “When most people think of UK food, one of the first things that comes to mind is fish and chips. It’s been popular for around 150 years with the first fish and chip shop in London opening in 1860!  I really don’t know anyone who doesn’t like this traditional supper treat, and each area in London will have its own popular local place.


A family favourite of ours, just south of central London in Victoria is: Seafresh on Wilton Road. My mum was the one to discover it originally and now all of us frequently visit the place. It’s always busy and the portions are huge. There’s both a sit down restaurant and also a take-away, if you don’t want to eat in.”
