Vancouver’s gold standard for an old fashioned order of comforting, seriously finger-licking fish & chips can be found at The Fish Counter. Located on the Riley Park strip of Main Street (off East 22nd Ave.), this pioneering, Ocean Wise-friendly seafood market has several versions of the crispy stuff – from Pacific Cod and Ling Cod to Halibut and Salmon – all consistently executed to golden brown and flaky perfection. Bonus: proper tartar sauce and optional malt vinegar for the skinny fries.
