Re:Best Fish & Chips in the World??
I can't say that I have been to a lot of the places on this list, but I have been to Go Fish in Vancouver, BC and The Frying Scotsman in Portland, OR and would give both places solid recommendations.
Go Fish is right on the water in Vancouver, just off the Granville Island Bridge. It is very scenic, and with scenery, one often has to sacrifice food quality. Not here. Everything is fried to order, which may take a few minutes, but is worth it. Should you find yourself in Vancouver, you could do far worse.
The Frying Scotsman is a food truck in Portland, located in one of the permanent truck "pods" that dot the city (9th and Alder). Among others, this is also where you would find the downtown location of Grilled Cheese Grill. The owner is an affable Scot, with whom I had the pleasure of chatting, as he wasn't busy on the particularly chilly day I visited this past fall. Again, everything is prepared fresh, right in full view. I thought the fish was a little greasy, but it's fish and chips, not tofu....it probably should be a little greasy. The chips were obviously fresh cut and fried to perfection. I enjoyed my visit and would happily go back again.
