An Aberdeenshire chippie, a San Sebastián pintxos crawl and toasted grasshoppers in Oaxaca hit the mark in Lonely Planet’s new book of the world’s most memorable food experiences
Forget gourmet restaurants and gastrofied pubs, the best food experience in the UK costs £7.30 and is served with harbour views. Choosing tradition over trends, Lonely Planet ranked eating fish and chips at number 31 in its Ultimate Eatlist, a new guide to 500 of the most memorable food experiences around the world, and recommended The Bay Fish and Chip Shop in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, as selling the finest in the country.
“Considering the setting, the sustainability and the beautifully cooked fish, is [the Bay] the best fish and chip shop in the world? The constant queue suggests so,” says the guide.
