There's just something about hot & sunny weather that goes well with fish & chips. For that reason, I figured it'd be useful to have a handy list of joints that serve some quality sea grub and deep-fried potato bits. Close to home, I've always been happy with the flavour and grease dished out by the Vancouver Parks Board concession stands at every beach. Perhaps it's just the childhood nostalgia of the pale yellow cardboard it's still served in. Although it's been a while -- as far as restaurants go, I remember the Cheshire Cheese always being worth the money. But above all, the all-time Lower Mainland best has got to be (and please help me with the name) Hojo's, Banjo's, Pajo's, Pogo's, or whatever it's called located literally on the water at the Steveston docks. They still serve it up in newspaper full of chips and topped with your choice of greasy cod or halibut. Wicked.
