Red Fish, Blue Fish - Victoria, BC

Ferry from Vancouver to Victoria

One of the highlights of our visit to Victoria (besides getting a tour by former residents - inside knowledge is great!), was eating at Red Fish, Blue Fish at the wharf in downtown Victoria.  It is basically an old cargo container which has been converted into a stationary food truck.  Their approach is delicious, fresh and sustainable sea food.

The lines were steady when we arrived - which is not a bad thing, as it gives you time to figure out what you want to order.  The danger here for me, arriving hungry, was that everything looked good!  Restraint was definitely needed to make some careful selections.  In the end we decided on the Tempura Cod Fish Tacone and the Spicy Pacific Fish Poutine.  The Tacone (cone shaped taco) had slaw and pea shoots.  The seafood was very fresh - something we don't get very often in Ontario - so I appreciated that.  I preferred the Fish Poutine - french fries usually win, and especially when covered with fish, crispy shallots and green onions. They said it was spicy, but it wasn't that spicy - flavourful though.  Of course, even with careful planning, my eyes were bigger than my stomach and I had to sacrifice the fries in the hopes of not feeling like a beached whale. I would need to go back to truly experience everything yummy this 'food truck' had to offer.  Perhaps the tried and true fish and chips - next time.
