Fabulous Fish ‘n Chips

fish_chips-01 Fishing for the best fish and chips in town. This is one of my favourite weekend adventures.

What makes a fabulous fish and chips basket?
For me, it’s first biting into a light, crunchy, flaky batter and then into a fresh fish filet (halibut, preferably). Tartar sauce should be made in-house with just a touch of tang and creaminess. Perfectly fried french fries and fresh house-made coleslaw to pair as accompaniments.

These establishments serve some of the yummiest fish ‘n chips. Some of them have seasonal hours, and open only during the spring and summer months.
British Columbia (BC)   •   Go Fish Granville Island (Vancouver, BC)
  •   Finest At Sea (Vancouver, BC)
  •   Pajo’s
Alberta (AB)   •   Joey’s Restaurants
Silicon Valley (CA)   •   Flying Fish Bar & Grill (Half Moon Bay, CA)
  •   Pacific Catch
  •   Princeton Seafood Company (Half Moon Bay, CA)
Finest At Sea‘s Vancouver, BC “Kerrisdale” neighbourhood location is unique. Half of the store is a fresh seafood market, and the other half is a cafeteria-style venue that serves made-to-order fish ‘n chips, New England style clam chowder and many other decadent seafood bites.

Hope you’ll find your best catch of fish ‘n chips! Please pass along any good catches that you find too.
