Acadian Fish and Chips – Hammonds Plains, NS

Drew is currently on a hunt for the best Fish and Chips in the province (my gluten allergy prevents me from partaking in most).  So last week, while touring around Hammonds Plains, one of our must-see places was newly opened Acadian Fish and Chips.


The shop only opened in December.  My parents visited on their second day of business and have been talking about it ever since.  We made sure to save some room during the all-you-can-eat hotdog feast at Hatfield Farms.  Drew ordered the 1 pc Fish and Chips at the cash, before we settled in at one of the 6 tables.  The inside was very clean, with light, exposed wood and lots of natural light.  I enjoyed the atmosphere and would have been happy to sit for a bit but the food was ready really fast, just a few minutes after ordering.

Drew dug into the fish and tartar sauce while I munched on fries.  The batter was flaky and crispy, not at all greasy.  It came in the classic news print basket which I thought was a great feature.  I thought the fries were good, but my favourite part was getting a little taste of their tartar, which was some of the best I’ve had.

For $8.99 it was a filling meal for one (or two if you’ve just chowed down on hotdogs).  Between the atmosphere, the friendly owner and the food it’s a great spot to get your fish and chips fix.

Over the next few months, we’ll be on the hunt for the best Fish and Chips in Nova Scotia.  Leave your suggestions below, or check out the places we have tried so far:
