We parked at the parking lot on the harbor front, then veered off to the left to the cargo box converted into an amazing kitchen nestled behind a building at the base of the hill facing the harbor. It seems to have a never ending line up of hungry folks!!
We didn't order as much as we would have liked as we were pretty stuffed after high tea at the Fairmont Empress, but we made room none the less. My boyfriend went with an order of Fish and Chips. Light crunchy batter encased a silky perfectly cooked moist fish inside. Served with excellent inhouse made tartar sauce and wicked coleslaw, this was yummmy! The inhouse made tartar sauce beat out the malt vinegar syrup this time as the malt vinegar syrup fell short, as it wasn't well.. reduced long enough so we were basically just dunking our fries into plan malt vinegar.
The coleslaw it came was much improved since our last visit... tangy, crisp, cool and refreshing... I had to fight with my boyfriend for it as we made it disappear long befor the cod dog was finished!
Overall, this is not your ordinary fish and chips joint... and its well worth the searching and waiting for their awesome fish and chips and Cod Dogs... and don't let the birds eyeing your food disconcert you. They know what's good!
