Took my family out for a lunch treat on Hari Raya Aidiladha last week. Wanted to get our regular dose of spicy Indian Muslim food but because it was a Muslim holiday, our favourite mamak shop was closed for the day.
And so, we decided to give Uncle Albert’s Traditional English Fish and Chips a try. This is not a new eatery as it was opened in July this year but a friend stopped me from patronising it in the early days, saying they are pricey.
Well, I didn’t really mind the price as I know that Uncle Albert’s serves premium fish like cod, salmon and halibut, which are all imported.
Anyway, we ordered the three sets of lunch specials of the week, plus an à la carte grilled chicken from the all-day menu.
I wanted to try the carrot soup, which I had heard so much about, but it was unavailable that day. Only homemade potato soup was served. In fact, many of the items on the menu are homemade, including presto, bread and sauces.
Despite its name, Uncle Albert’s, a pork-free restaurant, serves more than fish and chips, as you can see from my photos.
I have to say that considering the large portions, where we had trouble finishing everything we ordered, the prices are pretty reasonable. Yes, that’s how filling the food was, even though they don’t seem so from my photos, right? We were so busy eating, I didn’t even have the chance to make use of the free WiFi. LOL
Uncle Albert’s is just to the left of Healy Mac’s Irish bar in Greentown Business Centre in Ipoh. A second branch was recently opened in Penang’s Straits Quay, also just next to the island’s Healy Mac’s.
