Harbour Fish 'n' Fries

In for a penny, in for a pound (or 10), I suppose. Today we made the trip out to Musquodoboit Harbour to go the best fish and chips place on Earth: Harbour Fish 'n' Fries. My sister discovered this place when she was lifeguarding at Martinique Beach. It started as a truck, and then they built a little shack, and then they added a couple of tables, and now there is both indoor and outdoor seating. They are only open during the spring and summer months, so you need to go while the going is good.

We're partial to the fish and clams, but they also have scallops. Darcy had a two piece fish and fries, I had a one piece, and Koto had clam and fries with a piece of fish on the side. When the waitress brought us our food, she assumed that the one piece was for my tiny sister and the overflowing plate was for me. :( Very honest mistake. Who are we kidding here.

Everything was sublime. They change their oil often so everthing always tastes fresh and crisp. The fries are homemade and the fish is moist and juicy (so much better than the monkfish the other night at the 'nouvelle cuisine' place). On the tables they have copious amounts of all the condiments you would need: white vinegar, malt vinegar, ketchup, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Tartar sauce and coleslaw comes with everything.

If you're looking for fish and chips around here, there is no place else that comes close.
