There weren't many choices. It was either this place or the other, after consulting Yelp which didn't provide many 4+ ratings to choose from (why eat anything less than 4 stars though?)
So we ended up here and were so glad we did when we sat down on an outside table after placing our order at the counter:

Owner Tammy greeted us and knew we were tourists cause a Chinese family of four stuck out so hard in that city. She gave us a list of places to which we should, and warned us of the tourist traps. 

Possibly the best first stop we could have made on our East Coast Canada trip.
Lobster roll was not like the ones from fisherman's wharf in SF. You can actually see the lobster claw meat here, which is not mixed 50/50 with mayo. Shredded lettuce, and a toasted bun with a drizzle of the melted butter that they serve with boiled lobster was missing. Whole leaf lettuce made taking bites of this thing rather awkward. Not piping hot toasted bun makes a bad mouthfeel with the lobster. Lobster/mayo part was good, the entire lobster roll was okay.
Batter is like super crispy, thin, and stays on the fish even when you cut it up. This was our first fish and chips upon landing, and since then we had many more fish and chips places. So I can say that this was by far the best one. The fish they used was not too flaky, and they cooked it so that it was still nice and moist inside. Very good

Sweet potato fries, flatter (not square) cut, came with a chipotle mayo that we were not fond of, and just dipped it in tartar sauce instead. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Okay

We came here a second time to eat their fish and chips again because the fish was that good.

A big thank you to Tammy who treated us to great food and the extensive list of places to eat and visit!


Completely forgot to blog about this trip even though I had all the pictures edited wow
Waking up to this
