[pdx] Fish and Chips

JillyJill | Feb 13, 2008 11:16 AM

Heading up to Portland for a day trip.
I'd like to get some fish and chips, but I've got a few criteria that are seemingly impossible to meet in Eugene at least, hopefully Portland will do better.

I'm looking for actual hunks of Cod, fish sticks or patties need not apply. If it's rounded or shaped, I'm not interested. I'd like the hunks to be sizable, one 5 inch fish isn't going to cut it.

Chips need to be "chips", not fries. No waffle-cuts, rounds or shoestrings, they need to be able to stand up to some vinegar and salt.

The batter needs to be crispy, not breaded.

Bonus points for meals served in paper with wooden forks and local joints. I don't mind chains if they are worth it. "Beer-battered" or not is fine, so long as it's good. Pickled onions optional.

Going to be up by the expo center, so close to that is preferable, however, I'll travel anywhere in Portland and along the I-5 corridor to Eugene.

Please help me out, Chowhounds.
