Obama's fish'n'chips

While Barack Obama was busy chatting to Gordie in London earlier this week (thrashing out career options, perhaps?), Mrs Obama was rocking it tourist-style with daughters Malia and Sasha.

The set of Harry Potter at Pinewood Studios was reportedly on their whistle stop tour of London; as was Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. All pretty standard. More curious was their choice of lunch venue: The Audley in Mayfair. Maybe it was its handy location, just around the corner from the US embassy? Or was Michelle Obama tempted by the pub's promise to dish up a plate of mean fish'n'chips?

Is the latter possible? Is Britain's most famous meal as much of a tourist attraction as Big Ben, or indeed, Pinewood? If so, Michelle and family (plus anyone London-bound) need to know about The Chippy - an amazing little cafe on Poland Street in Soho responsible for the best fish'n'chips this side of the Atlantic... unless you know otherwise.
