RESTAURANT REVIEW: Cousins Fish Shop and Restaurant


Cousins Fish Shop and Restaurant is a relatively new fish and chip shop in Wimbledon and after walking past a few times since we moved last November, Steve and I finally managed to visit. The menu is surprisingly large with an array of starters, different fish and sides. There's even a healthy section consisting of grilled fish and new potatoes.




I don't drink fizzy pop that often but when I do Fanta orange is my all time favourite, it's perfect for a fish supper.








We decided to get a mixed platter with 4 choices in order to try a range of starters. First of all this plate was huge, a lot bigger than I expected it to be and definitely something which can be shared amongst many people. The scampi was my favourite with a good fish to batter ratio. The calamari was a little bland and the fish cake had an unusual taste about it. The tempura prawns were nice and crispy and the sweet chilli dipping sauce was a tasty addition. The chips were lovely, proper chippie chips with a fluffy centre.




We also ordered a small cod and chip, the fish was very fresh and the batter had a nice crunch and not at all greasy. Again, very nice chips.


 
Mushy peas, my favourite. This portion was delicious.







Cousins is a lovely little fish shop and somewhere I'd like to visit again. They do 10% discount for local businesses and you can get a take away if you don't fancy eating in. The food scene in Wimbledon is pretty poor so it's nice to see an independent restaurant so close to home.
