Salt and vinegar soaked deliciousness
Saturday night is no time to be slaving over a hot oven, but with the economic climate being the way it is, the likelihood is you can't afford to be eating out in expensive restaurants every weekend either. So why not meet in the middle and treat yourself to a takeaway from a traditional fish and chip shop? It's a cost-effective meal that is the ultimate comfort food in cold weather and is absolutely delicious too.

St Elmo Fishbar, on the corner of Askew Road and St Elmo Road, stands out amid the many 'chippies' in the Shepherd's Bush area. As well as its cheerfully painted outside wall, inside it is noticeably clean and well maintained, and the fact that there is regularly a queue for food on a Saturday evening, while nearby chip shops stand empty, is a fantastic review in itself.

The menu is simple: choose from classic cod, rock or haddock, or if you fancy something other than fish, there's the usual array of battered sausages, saveloys, chicken and burgers too. Expect to pay around 6 for fish and chips - you could even splash out and add a pickled gherkin or mushy peas on the side! Soft drinks are sold there too, so it's a one-stop shop for your Saturday supper needs. The only question that remains is: open or wrapped?
