Certain restaurants are known for their expertise at turning out signature foods really well. They've pinned down the ingredients, mastered the process, and gained a strong following as a result. London has had much success creating a substantial market for Fish and Chips. It might be a little way from the sea, but London's river has given it a seafaring past too, and this national staple is a popular favourite.   Locals can't get enough of the city's excellent food, and you'll often find them, along with eager tourists, at popular Rock & Sole Plaice  Make sure you see what all the fuss is about!
