Popular fish and chip chain Kerbisher & Malt has built up a reputation for its food south of the river over the past four years. Now it's expanding to East London with the opening of its fifth shop, on Rosebery Avenue, just off Exmouth Market. The new Kerbisher EC1 is going to be part of a offshoot of the brand - it's smaller and more about takeaway than the existing places and is going to be the first in a roll-out.
What that means food-wise is a reduced version of their usual menu featuring sustainably-sourced fish which you can choose to have battered, crumbed in matzo meal or grilled. They'll be putting on a range of lunch-time specials and online ordering for busy workers nearby. But, should you want to eat in, there'll be 12 seats to do just that and a range of craft beers on offer for eat-in diners.
Kerbisher EC1 opens on 20th January 2015 at 59-61 Rosebery Ave, London, EC1R 4SD. They're running a soft launch offer for the first week of 50% off from Thurs 22nd to Sunday 25th January. Keep up with their news on Twitter @kerbisher
