drive your car, park RIGHT in front of the bus stop, put in a dollar and you're good to go. Please please remember the owners is this asian women and asian guy. their clam chowder is RED. NOT WHITE. their batter is SUPER light with a hint of orange butter..ish thing.

just talk to the asian owners, they are nice and try sitting at the stools.

i heard that Go Fish is pretty good and will probably check it out soon. Pajos is a staple but doesnt blow me away, have been going there forever though. Mr Pickwicks is good too but way too expensive ($18 for a two piece at the downtown location).

Johnnie Fox's is wicked, their red snapper and chips is amazing. make sure you upgrade to the beer battered fries!

Rain City Grill does a halibut and chips with a bottled water for only $10. only available in the summer though from their side take out window.

so i went on sunday. Same thing. looks like they had a huge hand out at downtown east side area across the street. I took a girl there, parked right outside and we had working girls already asking us for money and the bus stop alreayd smells like urine.

I went inside, and ordered the usual, Halibut / Cod with fries. Halibut and the cod are always good. The oysters are OK, and the pan fried salmon was just ok. (after eating the awesome fish and chips, the salmon was just meh ahahhaha). The red clam chowder is always something diff. esp. when I'm alwasy used to drinking white chowder.

What was interesting this time (it's my 5th time there with different girls each time) was when I paid the bill. Each and every customer that comes in are always bums, crack addcts and they always pay before they order.
"i'll order fries" and they will hand the owner 3 dollars.
"coffee please" and it'll be 1 dollar. no money no product. ahahhah

when i paid the bill this time (cause i actually get a bill) he made conversations with me and he's like "yeah, i remember you, you live in richmond and you always come in with your motorcycles" ahahahahah
I'm like, pshhhhh, don't talk so loud, i don't this girl to know i take diff. girls to this joint. ahhahh

Wow.....a lot of people siding with Pajos.

Sure its good.....but Sockeye City is far better for variety, quality, and size.

So Sockeye City gets my vote....the one and only in this thread it seems.


For those who like other seafood including fried oysters and prawns.....imagine fried oyster peices the size of your fist.

I was never a Pajo's fan - thought it was always too greasy... Go Fish is generally my go-to place, though before all of them, I used to always go to Olympia on Robson/Thurlow until they closed down a few years back

Mr. Pickwick's is alright. But I've only been to their Granville location once. I had the 2 piece Cod and it was awesome. The chips were a bit below average though. I just thought I'd try it out just because I saw it ranked #1 by the Georgia Straight for Fish and Chips in Vancouver. Maybe I just caught them on a bad day? I don't know...

Anybody ever order Fish and Chips from #9 @ Lansdowne? I'm always reluctant to order anything western like that at chinese places.

Mr. Pickwick's is shit. They're over-priced and their food is only slightly above what you'd get if you got a Fillet O'Fish at McDonalds, put it in a plate, and dumped fries all over it. Their service is rude and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

i cant believe no one has said the crab shack in north vancouver. It is towards Deep Cove just off the Iron workers memorial. They primarily sell fresh sea food, but they also have a great menu if you are too lazy to make your own stuff

I've been to Moby Dick's in White rock a couple of times. They always give you an extra piece. Not bad, batter not too thick, good prices.
