Five of Dubai’s best fish and chips
Bob’s Fish & Chips
Many a person’s go-to after a night out, this Brit-style chippy serves up doner kebabs, jacket potatoes and pies, but the big draws are the cod and chips and haddock and chips. Golden-fried and served with a mountain of fat chips.

The Eloquent Elephant
Not one for the ‘we want plates’ brigade, but we’re not bothered. Excellent, crispy-coated haddock, fat chips, and swanky peas. Well paired with the Business Bay gastropub’s homemade samphire tartar sauce and tomato ketchup. (And the quiz, every Monday.)
