Oakland Fish & Chips Warning

Shepherd B. Goode | Jun 3, 200303:15 PM

Having previously enjoyed meals from Giant Fish & Chips on E. 18th, I expected at least an averagely good lunch. Our salmon, however, was sliced so thin that the corn-meal breading was actually thicker than the fish, and the result was serious over-cooking, with dried-out, tasteless fish. Hushpuppies were similarly overcooked, almost black, with all the corn flavor lost. I ended up concentrating on the cole slaw, as the most edible portion of my lunch; it wasn't bad, just not good. My companion's fries, Texas-cut, were probably the best item, crispy outside and mealy inside, not greasy.

Life's too short--I won't return. Instead, swing around the other side of the Lake to London Fish & Chips on Grand, for some real good stuff. See previous posting.

If you must,
Giant Fish |& Chips
326 E. 18th St, off Park

P.S. They do have a Homies vending machine--but so do better places.
