Don’t let the name fool you, The Codfather is a proper chippy. Owner Adam Randall, a Brit by birth, earned his fried fish stripes by working at his father’s fish and chips shop in Pennsylvania. His idea for The Codfather was an old-school spot with hearty English food. And now, after a wildly successful go at his first location, he’s moved into a bigger and better spot on Spruill. At the handbuilt shop, Randall uses both cod and haddock with his own special recipe batter. Mushy peas can be ordered as a side with gravy. We suggest you order them. Thick and creamy, on a rainy day in North Charleston you’d be hard pressed to find a more comforting, or affordable meal. —Kinsey Gidick (Dish, Winter 2019)
