Planning a trip to London in a couple of weeks. DD is working on expanding her food repertoire. (She's getting less and less picky since we've been travelling.) Anyway, her next project is to add fish to her list of edible foods. We ordered fish and chips on our first trip, and she didn't like it because she thought it looked like a whole fish (and I think it still had the skin on), so I'm thinking she should start with a fillet.
My question is whether when you order something that just says fish (whatever kind) and chips, will it be a filet or whole fish, or does it depend on the restaurant? I looked at the North Sea menu, and some mains are listed as fillets and others aren't (i.e. it just says Dover Sole, but says Cod Fillet.) I didn't know if that meant that if it doesn't say fillet it's a whole fish or if it just depends on the restaurant.
North Sea is near our hotel, so we could always just go there, but we're not always by the hotel when we want to eat, so I thought I would see if I could get some sort of general rule.
We will also be spending a couple of days in York. Does it matter if we get fish in York or London (I know some things are regional)?
