Here at Faber, we are famous for the quality of our fish dishes. Much of that, of course, is thanks to our talented chef and kitchen staff. However, you can only get first-rate food if you use first-rate ingredients. That’s why it’s so important to have a local, reputable fishmonger that you can rely on to sell only the freshest catch of the day.
Luckily for us, London has some of the best fishmongers in the country, if not the world. In this article, we’re going to look at ten of the very best, including those that we use ourselves.
