Johnny’s fish and chips co–Cebu, Philippines

Johnnys fish and chips co - cebu

This was a bit of and odd one as I thought this had already been posted. But after searching for nearly 20mins I can’t find it posted and I had come across the photos on my mobile phone which I had completely forgotten I took the pictures. So here we are a quick review of Johnny’s fish and chips co which is based at Parkmall, 168 Ouano Avenue North Reclamation Area, Tipolo, Cebu. The first thing I noticed about the fish and chips was the portions were a lot smaller than I had expected. The flavour didn’t match the sort of thing we have in UK but it was still very tasty. Also I ordered the ginger tea which to be honest would recommend with most meals as it seems to bring out the taste as well as refreshing in the afternoon sun.

fishnchipsThe restaurant itself is nestled between several other restaurants including the Tandoori one I love to eat at slowly working my way through the whole menu. But back to Johnny’s fish and chips Co the fish and chips weren’t greasy which is an important point they were fairly crisp and I would have enjoyed more with a stronger vinegar. There is something about fish and chips in newspapers as sold in the UK which makes it hard for restaurants to compete. I think its the flavour gets locked inside when wrapped that offers up a stronger taste when the salt and vinegar mix. Sadly I didn’t take a photo of the fish and chips so have added more the way I like it instead with them wrapped in paper to let the vinegar soak in.

CrepesBut on the bright side we did have crepes to follow the meal and I have to say they were fantastic. Maybe they should have Johnny’s crepes instead as a restaurant name? Anyway if you got to Johnny’s fish and chips Co. please try the crepes I don’t think you will be disappointed although on the downside for Johnny’s for them is that they are too close to my favourite Tandoori in Cebu which even stood outside I can feel myself being drawn to the Tandoori every time.
