Bump.

After having some awesome fish and chips at Barb's lighted a fire in me to look for equally as awesome fish and chips in the mainland. Any new places popped up that are good? Or is it the same old?

Oh man how have I not discovered this thread. I am an addict!

Two of the best ones I've had so far are from this chain fish and chip restaurant at the west edmonton mall foodcourt, and also at Gordon Ramsay fish and chips in Vegas. Have not really found any that compare locally, unfortunately

Ended up making my own fish and chips.

Well, fuck. First of all, temperature control is important as hell. If you attempt this yourself, make sure you get either a deep fryer with a PID/temp control or a suitable thermometer.

I had no idea WTF I was dealing with and cranked the heat up on the oil and my fucking God, the fish turned out like blackened fish (but was still cooked beautifully, thank goodness.) I lowered the temperature on the second round and it turned out perfectly. Third and fourth batches were okay as there was too much temperature loss, so the batter was not as crispy. They turned out lighter and not as crispy, but still good.

One thing I regret was not using enough seasoning as I was too afraid I would over season the fish and ruin the damn thing, but it's safe to do so and I would do it more liberally. Slice some lemon, throw up some fries with sea salt, parsley, and paprika - yum. Don't forget the tartar sauce!

For reference, I used Gordon Ramsey's recipe. I suggest making the batter overnight and use a good lager for the beer batter. I ended up using Mill Street Organic lager and went to the fish market to get nice fresh pieces of cod, about a pound, which served two people, but I would say a three adults is more accurate.

I think it's called the Flying Fish N Chipper, it's a food truck. Solid 2pc cod and chips/coleslaw for $14.

Went to Pajos a couple weeks ago, what a huge disappointment. Had to wait 45min and it was expensive, soggy and lacking in flavour.

Went to Fish Counter 2 days ago, fresh and delicious. 2pc Cod and a Oyster Poboy hits the spot!
