Go Fish – Canned seafood

Just beyond the edge of Granville Island sits a blue shipping container, you know, one of those big metal boxes you see piled on ships. But this container is different, it is not filled with toys or clothes or cars, it has been modified to hold a kitchen, some chefs and the freshest seafood in the city.

Go Fish is a fish shack that serves up the tastiest fish in town. Whether you are looking for beer battered halibut and chips or a scallop burger, they make it and they make it incredible. And don’t even get me started about the tacones, I have never seen these little delights anywhere else and I cannot get enough of them. A tacone, for those of us who haven’t seen one before, is seafood, wrapped in seaweed, wrapped in a warm tortilla that wraps up in complete deliciousness.

But, to make seafood this good it has to be locally sourced and Go Fish takes locally sourced to the extreme. Their fish is purchased at the fisherman’s collective just 20 steps away from their kitchen/container – it doesn’t get anymore local than that. Being tied to the will of the ocean and the catch of the fisherman, Go Fish also delivers incredible daily specials that are designed around what the ships have brought in.

So if you are looking for the best seafood in Vancouver get to Go Fish, and go early because food this good always draws a line.
