Despite being piping-hot, something about juicy fish planks beer-battered and fried to a crisp just screams summer. Here’s a short list of where to get your fix.

20 Feet Seafood
This East Dallas purveyor of ocean treats just expanded its patio, providing even more room for savoring po' boys, lobster rolls and, of course, fish 'n' chips (top).

1160 Peavy Rd.; 972-707-7442

Old Monk
Ask for a beer recommendation with one of the city’s best-known fish 'n' chips (above), where the seafood is Smithwick’s battered. Would ordering a pint of the stuff be overkill?

2847 N. Henderson Ave.; 214-821-1880

The Londoner
You’ll want to keep this UK-style Addison pub in mind in the coming weeks, as it's a soccer haven for World Cup fans. Happily, you can order a one-piece serving of fish 'n' chips, the better to free yourself for cheering along.

14930 Midway Rd.; 972-458-2444

British Beverage Co.
The convivial English tavern, complete with game-filled outdoor spaces, serves its fish 'n' chips in a cast-iron dish (above) with housemade tartar sauce. And the fries come malt vinegar-flavored for your convenience.

2800 Routh St.; 214-922-8220

Velvet Taco
Hey, this is Texas, you had to expect that one of these would come in taco form! Velvet Taco puts an Indian spin on it, adding a drizzle of curry mayo to the tortilla that’s also filled with malted fries and pea tendrils.

3012 N. Henderson Ave.; 214-823-8358

Pier 247
Alongside the cod and hand-cut fries (above), the Oak Cliff casual seafood spot serves hushpuppies, which come in two varieties: classic or jalapeño-cheddar. Order a side of housemade coleslaw to seal the deal.

247 W. Davis St.; 214-948-3232
