Egypt wouldn’t be the same without koshari, Jordan wouldn’t be the same without mansaf, and the United Kingdom sure as hell wouldn’t be the same without fish and chips. All of these aforementioned dishes are not just delicious, but they’re also quite cheap.
You can easily get fish and chips anywhere in Britain for £5 — but Britain is not the topic of our discussion right now, Dubai is. Pierchic, one of the restaurants in the largest and most populous city in the United Arab Emirates is now serving up some fish and chips, and it’s not your usual cheap meal. On the contrary, it’s the exact opposite.
The dish costs AED270, AKA £57. Popsugar have dubbed it the poshest fish and chips in the world, and we can’t really blame them; in fact, we agree with them.
You can have it at Pierchic anytime between the dates of August 20 to September 2. Customers will be able to enjoy a beer battered turbot, a fish that is only found in European waters. The chips, obviously, are no ordinary ones as they’re cooked by Chef Paolo using Maris Piper potatoes.
