Waterbar's Fish and Chips

Would You Eat This Fish and Chips?

Recently at Waterbar, here in San Francisco, I ordered the fish & chips. I was blown away when the waiter brought out an entire rock cod — eyes, fins and all! The fish was battered and deep-fried whole for my eating pleasure. I immediately began to dig in, but some of my friends sharing the gigantic entrée were a little more hesitant. How about you? Could you stomach this unique version of fish and chips?

I would dig in, eat the bones and all the fishy face parts. I am grown up enough to know that meat has a face, and most of the time its a delicacy and super yummy. If anyone i knew actually freaked out after being served this, it would be the end of my friendship for sure.

That fish is going to give me nightmares.

I often joke that I never eat anything that didn't have a face, so I'm totally ok with this. In fact my fav sushi is Ama Ebi, at good places after they bring you the shrimp... they also bring you the shrimp head- battered and deep fried of course! I love it!

I would eat it. It's just a fish, gezz.. It's not like a cow head on the dish. >_> The "absolutely not" option is funny. hahah

Nope - couldn't do it. Also, fish bones are scary to me so I kinda prefer to have a boneless filet.

It's normal to eat fish that way in the Philippines.

I would devour this. I love the whole chili fish you can get at Thai restaurants.

I'm ok with the eyes, but the fact that it tastes like fish would be a problem for me.

My parents used fight for the eyes and fins when I was little. And one of my favorite memories and one of the things I love the most is having a whole fish. so yummy yummy in the tummy!!!

I would try it because I like to try everything before I decided I don't like it, but I would be upset that it wasn't mentioned on the menu that this is how it would be served....

My thoughts exactly deedoucette. I hate having to pick out bones, fat and the innards - other than that - YUMMERS.

No way... I like to keep up the illusion of my food not being living things. Kinda can't do that when it's staring at you.

The head doesn't bother's the fact that it's still full of bones. I hate picking fish bones out of things.

how about we chop off a human head, batter it and deep fry it. Serve it on a platter, surrounded by frieds and coleslaw. Ew

That's horrific. I'd send it back and ask for the head to be cut off and then I still wouldnt eat it. They should warn you when a fish is going to come out with the head on with a dish that doesnt usually include head. Poo.

The chips but not the fish. It's not because of the eyes it's because I only it fillet fish now because I got choked on a fish bone when I was a child.

My hubby would eat all the bones, heads and fins etc, but he would have to tear the meaty flesh away from me. It looks delicious even if i would waste half of it.
