Pirate’s Chips Restaurant

On a very wet, chilly and damp morning, following an appointment, we went looking for a new  place to have lunch. We have passed this place many, many times but today we went in. It is a smaller restaurant,  clean and decorated in a nautical fashion.

The menu is huge and we really had a time trying to make the right choice and decided we would share a 2 piece cod  dinner and (get ready) poutine fries. Now, before you think we have lost it, they have the best fish and chips we have seen this side  of  Vancouver. The poutine looked so darn good on another table, we had that instead of regular fries. Uh, uh, we were not the least bit sorry. The gravy on the fries was probably THE best. Our delightful server informed us it was a vegan gravy (???) but oh so good.

The cod serving was 2 gigantic pieces of heaven on a plate. Light batter, just a perfect golden colour served with coleslaw and lemon. Beautiful. It also came with a bottomless cup of coffee.

Now you would think we were done, right? hold on….the table back of us had a deep fried Nanaimo bar served with a large scoop of ice cream and equal sized mound of whipped cream. Both drizzled with chocolate sauce. Oh yeah!

This was a ‘had to try’ once in our lifetime, but I can think of two daughters and granddaughters that would kill for this dessert. It is lovely to taste, very, very rich to consume. This was shown of CBC Dragon’s Den television show. It is certainly worth a try.

We will be back. Their menu is definitely one to go to again and again just to try more of it.
