Go Fish Vancouver

Go Fish

Vancouver’s on the sea, and yet truthfully we don’t really have many great fish n’ chips type resturants in town. We do sushi like nobody’s business, but the sort of English style batter and fries fish is sort of not our game. There’s a few decent places, but until this week my favorite fish place in B.C. was still in the interior and not Vancouver proper. That was until the girlfriend convinced me that we should head to Go Fish by Granville Island [tl].

Go Fish is pretty much a shack in a parking lot, not exactly the sort of place you’d expect some of the best fish n’ chips in the city to be served, but its location mere yards away from the docks mean that the fish is fresh as you’ll find. If you’re eating it that probably means it was caught earlier that day, which is something you can’t say about most resturants. Again it’s fried for the most part, though there are some non-fried options on the menu, but sushi this isn’t so don’t go there expecting to feed a van full of vegans. It’s seafood, really damn good seafood.

    I’m a huge fan of their fish tacos… but in a pinch, I’d eat the box they came in. Delicious food and a great recommandation!

    you might also want to try Mr. Pickwicks Fish and Chips on Granville and 71st. Great fish and chips at a reasonable price. Not exactly fine dining atmosphere either, but very fresh and tasty food and friendly service
