|Steveston Fisherman's Wharf|
We went down after our Blueberry run to Steveston with the rest of the province to get some BC Sockeye Salmon. Before we could do that, we needed lunch. There was no way I was going to brave the jam packed fish docks on an empty stomach. We were originally going to go to Pajos up away from the docks but the line up alone looked like at least half an hour and then probably another half hour for the food so we walked on. D was getting the empty stomach plus crowds grumpy-old-man syndrome so I knew I did not have the luxury of hemming and hawing while I looked at menus.
Once on the boardwalk, the first large patio from the direction of the Cannery, you hit will be Sockeye City Grill. It has a large wrap around patio with a great view of the fishing boats as well as a large sit-in restaurant. We were not staying. We went over to their Take-Out window where they only offer their Fish and Chip and accoutrement.
|Salmon Fish and Chips - Sockeye City Grill|
The Fish was nice and moist. The batter had that lovely beer battered full aroma but was on the thick side and so not as crispy as some of the best. It did not break apart easily when you try snap off a piece. The Fries were quite a small portion though they were hot and crisp and not at all soggy. The order comes with Tartar sauce but does not come with Coleslaw. That is extra. It was pretty good but Go Fish! is still the best in town in Vancouver but the fries are probably a bit better at Sockeye's though a meaner portion.
Cost: $$-$$$ (Take-Out)
Service: On the slow side for Take-Out
