Gianni Fish & Chips

I was reading Paul’s Hammockman Blog and noticed he had tried out Gianni’s, a new fish and chip place in Merida. It is only a few blocks away so we decided to give it a try for a late lunch / early dinner yesterday.

What a treat! A very generous portion of fish and chips served in a paper cone accompanied by several salsas and including a pop or bottled water.  He also had malt vinegar! A real treat in Mexico.

The owner, Giancarlo, is a young, energetic man who speaks excellent English and is very proud of his business. He took the time to describe all his homemade salsas and described everything on the menu.

We ordered two orders of fish & chips, bottled water and an order of calamari to share. It was very good, we left full and the total cost was about $140 pesos ($10.75) for the two of us! Thanks for the recommendation Paul, It was a great meal!

  1. Wow that looks good!

    (How does it compare to Dick's?)

  2. It is a different kind of fish so I have to say Dick's is better for my taste. This one if very good though and 1/4 the price!

  3. Sounds fantastic. Makes me want to make the 2,000 mile trip!
