As you may have noticed, your writer likes Fish & Chips. Lantzville Pub, Shady Rest, Rocking Horse Pub, Black Goose, and Black Fin Pubs all have pretty good Fish & Chips.
But, yesterday I joined a former colleague for lunch in Nanaimo at the venerable WHITE SPOT. Right now they are featuring a special WINTER MENU. $12 for any entree on the sheet. Meatballs & Spaghetti, Chicken Pot Pie and FISH & CHIPS as well as several other items are all available for $12 each. A good deal.
We both opted for the FISH & CHIPS. The best I’ve had in some time. Two generous pieces of cod in a light but very crispy tempura type batter were cooked to perfection. The fries were, of course, standard White Spot fries which have always had their own uniqueness. Regular White Spot Cole Slaw, but a generous portion. A wedge of lemon was the finish. Simply stated, these were really, really good Fish & Chips for $12. Unbeatable value, in my mind.
Thinking Fish & Chips? Head to the White Spot while the winter menu is still in effect!
