Cor Blimey

I have been searching for authentic British fish and chips in KL since forever so when Cor Blimey opened in Jan 2016 and billed itself as "giving locals a taste of authentic British food...", I plan to eat there but it took more than a year for my plan to become reality because I seldom venture into that area.

There are 5 types of fish for customers to choose from: catch of the day, atlantic cod, butterfish, snapper, and dory. Then pick a batter: plain (original), lemon & herb, onion & garlic, coconut curry, or chilli lemon. Next is the side: minted mushy peas, chunky coleslaw, or baked beans (select one). By default, homemade chunky chips and tartar sauce are served with the fish. There are pies and sausages on the menu too but we did not order those as we are there for the fish and fish only.

Atlantic Cod (Plain batter) with minted mushy peas - MYR32.90+ 10% service charge (MYR36.20 nett). The homemade chunky chips are thick and tasty. I could not finish the chips and had to take the leftovers home to enjoy later. Fortunately for me, the mushy peas is not a lot so I could finish it - it was very flavourful with a minty taste.

Catch of the Day is Haddock (Plain batter) with minted mushy peas - MYR34.90+ 10% service charge (MYR38.40 nett).
Brewed coffee (iced) - MYR7.90+ 10% service charge (MYR8.70 nett). A tiny jug of syrup is served separately.

The Atlantic Cod is fresh and thick. Just look at the nice white flaky meat. The batter is light, thin and crispy. Not oily at all.

The piece of Haddock is larger but thinner and served with skin. It is just as fresh as the cod with nice white flaky meat covered by a crispy thin light batter.

Cornwell's Malt Vinegar (brewed from malt - barley and wheat), salt, chilli sauce and tomato ketchup are available on each table.

The desserts are tempting but I was full so I did not order any to try. When I was in UK, I did not try deep fried mars bars so I am not going to try now as they will definitely be too sweet for me although I do have a sweet tooth.

  4. Thanks for sharing this as I myself have been looking for good fish & chips too. I ate at the famous shop in London and drank their coldest beer after that. It was Winter and I loved this memories. So I must bring my wife to SS15 as I have not been able to show her how a good fish is fried the English way. Your photos convinced me.

    She banned me from buying Heinz now after the bad reports from US. My bus ride home from college would pass the famous Heinz factory by the river, so I became a loyal consumer naturally. Ha ha!

  7. I love fish and chips. There used to be a shop claiming to sell authentic British fish and chips at my area but it closed down before I had a chance to try it.
