Expatriates of England and Ireland living in San Francisco tend to know about Piccadilly Fish & Chips, which provides a taste of the homeland on these shores. But those who don't frequent Polk Street might have otherwise overlooked it. That's not a good idea unless you don't enjoy a deliciously light and crisp fry-up.

After deciding how many pieces you want, you should ask for a second scoop of their tartar sauce, which is exceptional and really highlights how many inferior versions are passed off in other places. The other secret to tastiness has to be in the use of what looks like a Cadillac of fryers, imported from Wales and adorned with beautiful glass.

I keep meaning to try the shrimp and crab, especially the latter now that the commercial season has kicked back into gear, but it's hard to get past that good fish. Piccadilly Fish & Chips is located at 1348 Polk (at Pine); 771-6477. —Tamara Palmer
