The Fish Shack Vancouver (Downtown) | Crab or Lobster Feast Sunday

THE FISH SHACK GLOWBAL GROUP

 

 

The Fish Shack opened in Downtown Vancouver some months back, reclaiming the space Sanafir used to occupy. It’s quite interesting to see the transformation from a Moroccan decor into a high end fish n chip eatery. The concept is fresh of the boat, a casual seafood bar compared to its sister restaurant The Coast.

The space is big and open and there was plenty of seats on a Sunday night. Likely we got the upstairs almost all to ourselves. We begin with a few drinks…

Captain’s Lemonade: sauza tequila, fresh lemon juice & simple syrup… If that’s how the captain likes it I will throw him off the starboard. This was bitter, sour, and “plastic-ky”. Mate has got to re-proportion his concoction.

The Fish Shack’s Very Own: My condolence drink of caesar with clamato, horseradish, tabasco, tabasco, worcestershire, fresh lime juice, s&p, dijon mustard, prawn & pepperoni stick. My prawn must have been too hungry at sea because there was no pepperoni stick to be found. The drink itself was alright. Oh how I miss Ferris Oyster Bar’s Caesar.

While waiting we checked-in with Yelp and found that there was a sweet deal: Free bowl of chowder or any dessert on the menu!

New England Chowder: A decent sized bowl that was creamy with plenty of tiny calm morsels. The bread didn’t get soggy either by the time we neared the end.

Fresh Oysters:  Kusshi and Sawmill Bay. Now remember to ask your waiter specifically for prices. Our’s just told us it ranged from 2.50 to 3.05 and when I asked about the Kusshi I was quoted 2.95 and the billed came out differently.

Crab or Lobster Feast (Sundays): Your choice of either crab or lobster for their Sunday feature of $19 to be either steamed or fried. We chose cajun fried. Overall it was pretty tasty but could use some heat to the spice. The lobster was nonetheless fresh and bouncy.

Kentucky Fried Oyster Burger: served open face with tartar sauce, coleslaw, and kennebec fries. The open face was good concept but eating was difficult. We didn’t know how to hold it or if we should’ve used cultery.

The Fisherman’s Catch: Big Catch is 30 pp and minimum 2. Every time someone orders the catch the gong is struck and the presentation was theatrical   as your sever cuts the net, sprinkles on spices and gives the bowl a good stir. Everything in this dish reminds me of Crab Pot in Seattle. Lobster, dungeness crab, snow crab, mussels, prawns, calamari, crayfish, chorizo, corn and potato. Dip into a side of melted butter for some taste. I wish there was more seasoning and sauce. The corn and the potatoes were pretty tasteless when compared to Cray Kitchen & Bar.

New York Cheesecake: Strawberry coulis in a mason jar. Good density and flavor with crunchy graham crackers on the bottom.

Apple & Berry Crumble: A nice warm dessert that makes something so simple so right.

Sticky Toffee Pudding: If there’s one thing I love about this place is their dessert and the stick toffee completely stole the show. A warm, creamy and soft bread pudding drenched with toffee sauce. It didn’t matter how many laps I would have to swim. Now I don’t have to drive all the way to West Vancouver to Fraiche to quench my Sticky Toffee Pudding.
