Out here in the flatter, more land-locked parts of Canada, it can be difficult to find a good piece of fish. The love for seafood just isn’t as wide-spread in beef country, but sometimes everyone needs a good, traditional plate of English fish and chips. Sir Winston can help you with that, offering a large selection of UK treats in a fun and very British setting, complete with soccer banners and memorabilia.
A Sea of Options
The main event on the menu is of course, the fish, which is available in cod, pollock, halibut, and salmon, a surprisingly large selection for any fish and chip shop, never mind one in the prairies. Side options include the obvious chips, but also the not-so-obvious mushy peas, a Northern English favourite. You might also consider trying the large selection of shellfish (oysters, mussels, prawns and scallops) as an appetizer or main course. And on a cloudy, snowy day, pull in for a bowl of clam chowder to warm you from the inside out.
One thing the English are known for are their incredibly rich desserts. Sir Winston has brought perhaps the two richest and sweetest desserts to Edmonton, offering a custard tart and the fabled deep-fried Mars bar. You can enjoy one after dinner, or pop in midday just for a hit of the sweet stuff.
