Sutton & Sons is not your average fish and chip shop. The original shop in Stoke Newington started off on the high street selling the freshest catch of the day you can get from their very own fishmongers from across the road. Danny Sutton and his wife Hana opened up Sutton & Sons restaurant serving traditional British Classics and things that are different like a tuna burger, lobster sub, grilled fish and many others. Their latest venture is in the electric fun part of London, the shipping container Boxpark in Shoreditch.
I love heading out to Boxpark in Shoreditch it’s always ever changing with many new pop-up shops and restaurants filled with events. Sutton & Sons invited me down with press and bloggers to sample the food.
To start, we got white bait, cod goujons, scampi and calamari. Fried in groundnut oil, served on paper plates filled with moreish bites.
Cod Goujons are the size of 4 fingers wide, enough to be a meal itself. Breaded white baits are finger size bites, coated in hard coating of batter. Calamari went down exceptionally well. Squidgy rings of fleshy meat. Sutton & Sons own special batter is super light and crisp, without any extra amount of grease dripping.
Mains were top notch since Sutton & Sons speciality are the fish; I went ahead and ordered the British classic. I don’t usually go for cod at the chippies, but it was a killer one. The fish is quality, marine freshness, meaty plump and flaky as soon as your fork drags into the fish. If you’re feeling saucy the extras at Sutton & Sons is worth your while. Homemade tasty thick onion gravy is full-bodied flavour and the curry sauce is more of the Chinese yellow curry style. The chips, on the other hand, were just all right; at least it’s not limp.
Sutton & Sons specialise in fish very well, top notch quality glorious fish and tasty small plates ranging from £3. If you have room in your belly then go and try the desserts crafted by Mrs Sutton. I even love their chip shop fork logo design.
