This summer I’ve made it my goal to find the best fish and chips in Nova Scotia. Gillian thinks she may already have. We attended #PodcampHFX for the first time this year. We hadn’t pre-ordered the bagged lunch, so a group of us went downstairs to Evan’s Seafood Restaurant in Alderney Landing in Dartmouth.
Evan’s is a family-owned (Evan is Evan d’Entremont, supported by his immediate and extended family) seafood restaurant that began as a Farmers Market booth and delivery service. We recognized our servers from the Halifax Market. They have everything you could want in fried seafood (haddock, clams and scallops) with great portions at good prices. I got the fish burger ($5, $8 with fries). It was large, tasty with good tartar sauce and came with a heap of fries.
Being gluten-free, @GillianWesleyNS was going to pass, until someone mentioned the little “GF” symbols next to almost every menu item! She immediately ordered the $5 kids fish and chips (which was the same amount as a one piece fish & chips at many places), and loved every bite of it.
I have my mind, and my stomach, set on the lobster poutine next time we visit (Also GF). Yet another reason to visit downtown Dartmouth!
