How can I leave Victoria without visiting a food cart?! This is the infamous food cart right on the waters. And at 3PM, there is still a long line up at Red Rish, Blue Fish!
This infamous food cart is known for its fish and chips. You might not be able to see it, if you come in from the parking lot. But, if you walk down the set of stairs, that’s where it’s located. And most of the time, you will see a huge line up.
We were in a hurry back to the Ferry, so we didn’t get to taste the true taste of hot and fresh food here. But from what I could imagine, if the food was hot, this place would be D-licious!
The cod and chips were actually a combo, but I upgraded my chips for a few bucks more. The poutine was amazing! It was nothing of an original poutine. The spices and fish bits in there, just made it that much better.
The wild cod was not crispy anymore when we ate at the ferry lineup (which took 2 hours!!) I was so glad we had food in the car to accompany us through the 2 longest hours of my life. The slaw had a very unique taste to it, not my favourite. But, it was distinct.
I wanted the Qualicum Bay Scallops Tcones but they were all sold out. So, we set for the next favourite on the list. The grilled seared albacore tuna tacone. It’s spicy spicy spot prawn mayo with pea shoots, and lemon pickled onions. It’s served with their slaw on the side. This grilled tortilla hand roll was very juicy and the albacore tuna was fresh, it was just a perfect combo.
Here’s just a little heads up on what they will be serving in the next month or so. Oh, and one more thing. Did I mention they pack it in nice RECYCLABLE newspaper for you to take-out!
So to everyone who’s a Fish & Chips fan, where do you think is the best place for Fish & Chips? Leave me a comment down below.
