Best Fish and Chips

Seasoned Mariner

601 Wise Ave., Dundalk, (443) 242-7190,

Getting lost in Dundalk is pretty easy to do, given the endless looping scenery of strip malls and big-box stores. But if you find yourself crossing the bridge on Wise Avenue heading east, hang a quick right and you’ll find yourself in the parking lot of a surprisingly large restaurant, with two levels and plenty of outdoor seating, where youse can eat right on the wooder! The menu is pretty standard pub grub and seafood, but trust us, just get anything fried and you’ll be sporting a raging food boner in no time. The chips are maybe the best fries we’ve ever had—hand-cut (of course), crispy, tender, always deeply potato-y and aggressively seasoned. The fish is fat, squat chunks of firm, sweet haddock, sheathed in a batter that is right in the money zone of where delicate and sturdy overlap, greaseless, flavorful, so cacophonously crunchy that your companion’s bites sound like your own inside-your-head bites. Pro tip: The fish and chips are only on the lunch menu, but you can get them anytime if you ask.
