Restaurant- Mobile Food Truck: Chippy Chippy Bang Bang

Where: Centennial Park, Waterfront Liverpool, Nova Scotia

What I Ate: 1 piece fish & chips, the fish was battered English style. No coleslaw.

Details: Delicious! The fish was fresh and tasty, with a thicker, dense style of batter. The chippies were some of the tastiest home cut fries I have eaten!  Ketchup, salt and both malt and white vinegar were neatly arranged on the bars.

Service: Excellent! Fast, fresh and friendly.CCBB parks next to Centennial Park, on the waterfront in Liverpool, next to the Tourist Bureau. Great views, shaded benches and picnic tables for your dining pleasure. Swings and and a small playground make the wait fun.

Atmosphere: What’s not to like, picnic tables and a playground on Liverpool’s waterfront, Centennial Park.

Price: 1 piece fish & chips, $4.00 with tax. All fish & chips are one piece. The fish & chips are priced according to size of the fish. I had a “small” (not so small) piece.

 Of Interest: Chippy Chippy Bang Bang is a mobile food truck and moves around to accommodate festivals and events, so check ahead. CCBB can be found at the Wharf Rat Rally this year in Digby. Scotch Eggs, and Curry and Chips are also on the menu. Sing for your supper? Free Fish & Chips

Restaurant: Fredie’s Fantastic Fish House

What I Ate: 2 piece fish & chips, the fish was battered English style. No coleslaw.

Details: The fish was fresh, light and crisp. The fries were home cut and delicious. The tartar sauce was kraft. Both malt and white vinegar were on the tables or bars. I asked for lemon. The ketchup was Heinz.

Service: Excellent! Fast, fresh and friendly.The staff were chatty and loved their menu, especially the fresh fish!

Atmosphere: Small and bright, very clean. Stools with lunch bar, counter style, open kitchen. A few tables on the sidewalk. I loved watching my food being prepared in a clean and fun way. Be prepared to eat in your car or take it out, it is a popular spot.

 Of Interest: Amid the usual, Fredies Fantastic Fish House stands out. Next time I am trying Newfie Fries- fries with stuffing or dressing and gravy. The seafood sampler advertised for sharing, sounded good too.

The Best Fish & Chips Nova Scotia

Time to rediscover the best fish & chips in Nova Scotia for 2012!

Fish & Chips & Lobster Gear

The last time I posted the  Best Fish & Chips in Nova Scotia, I awarded first place to  Lanes Privateer Inn in Liverpool and they hit the top by providing fish so fresh, it was rude, crispy batter, hand cut fries, and top quality tartar sauce and ketchup. Ambiance counted and Lane’s delivered with 3 choices, an elegant brightly lit dining room, a warm and inviting pub, or an outdoor dining patio overlooking the Mersey River.

The same as last time I will be using a combined methodology of straw poll and travels around the province. I based my tests on taste, price, and the extra…hand cut fries, ambience, homemade tartar sauce, freshest fish or best batter. This non exact science provided me with a frame of reference to list the top ten.  There are so many wonderful places that serve delicious fish & chips in Nova Scotia that it’s always a challenge to choose who has the best!

The Best Fish & Chips in Nova Scotia

A girl could go mad with choice! Haddock or cod? Most fish & chips use haddock, once in a while cod or halibut is offered as a choice. Haddock or cod for me. Deep fried, pan-fried? Deep fried of course. Hand cut chips or frozen French fries? Hand cut of course.  Battered or crumbed? Crispy batter please. Wrapped in paper?  Without the ink please. I have fond memories of fish & chips on a cardboard plate and wooden forks. With lemon or tartar sauce?  Home made tartar and lemon please. Good quality ketchup for my chips. Vinegar? Malt or plain? Malt vinegar and lots of salt, this is the time to wallow in fat and sugar.
