Granville Island has a huge farmer’s market. I could spend a whole day visiting all the stalls, sampling all the food, and generally lazing about.
One place that really stood out here is Go Fish, a little stand that serves up some of the best seafood I have ever tasted.
I had a their special, scallop po boy sandwich that came with a side of coleslaw.
The sandwich is gigantic and with the restaurant being right on the water, the scallops were as fresh as can be.
R had their famous fish and chips and their soup of the day that was a curried seafood bisque:
We were pleasantly surprised with the soup. I wasn’t expecting much because I haven’t really had a soup knock me off my feet (exception: the one in Paris at Le Pre Verre) but this soup had me taking more and more spoonfuls. Who ended up finishing this soup? I’d rather not say.
The fish and chips really put to shame the ones I’ve tried in Toronto. It’s not even a fair comparison when fish is that fresh.
The line up to order is long and don’t expect to get a seat, you’ll most likely be sitting on the edge of the water with everyone else. You’ll know you’re at the right place when you see the long line up.
