Emergency Lunch Pick: free celebratory fish and chips on King West

Don’t feel like grabbing delightful dim sum for one today? How about free fish and chips instead? To celebrate two years in business, King West’s The One That Got Away, which we featured as a Weekly Lunch Pick last year, will be giving out free haddock and chips all day long. Plan on making this a lengthy lunch break: we’d be shocked if there wasn’t a lineup.

Since it opened last November, The One That Got Away has been serving simple sandwiches, wraps and tacos (only available after 2 p.m. for now) to King West workers and nighttime revellers. The cafeteria-style dining room features the rustic wood and kitschy artifacts ubiquitous in new restaurants, but the classic fish ’n’ chips is hard to come by downtown.
