Derek ‘Montgomery’ Edwardson, together with his family, has been running Montgomery’s Fish and Chips successfully for the past fifteen years. They describe their menu as traditional English style fish and chips, even though they serve their fish with the skin on. Baked at exactly the right temperature, their fish is never too oily, and moist all the way through. Their freshly cut potato chips are always perfectly crispy, squarely earning them their title as the best fish and chips in Canada.
What’s on the menu?
Montgomery’s offers a large variety of items on their menu. Their fish based items range from cod to prawns. As a side you can order some delicious coleslaw or mushy peas. Their specialty, however, is the halibut. Cooked to perfection, their halibut and chips lives up to its title as the best fish and chips in Canada. You won’t easily find halibut in restaurants overseas; so if you are a tourist visiting Vancouver you should definitely enjoy some halibut and chips on your sunny day out.
Montgomery’s lavish portions will make your mouth water, and you might even consider sharing with a friend. Just remember to budget a little extra if you need lots of tartar sauce to enjoy fish and chips. Montgomery’s is slightly notorious for their strict rationing on the sauce.
