|Jackpot! The place we were looking for :D|
What? The Olde Yorke Fish & Chips for what else other than fish & chips! :D
Where? 96 Laird Dr (off Eglinton ave east, East York)
The skinny: Touted to have “the best fish & chips in Toronto”, I decided to hit up this family-run pub (yep, they’re licensed!) to have my first fish & chips experience. Line-ups out the door are not uncommon for this joint so there's also a take out option (separate entrance). Recommended were the calamari app, halibut & chips, haddock & chips, and homemade key lime pie.

There were four of us who came. Don’t want to be mean, but the rainy (London-like) weather kind of set the mood. In a good way! It was sprinkling, Mike was wearing his wellies, and we were going to eat fish & chips, how oddly perfect is that?! Haha I’ll admit, not really. But I was super excited about chatting up with some friends over an expectedly good meal. :)
Check out the beautifully thick chips (aka fries)! --->
(more on that later)
The décor is homey and welcoming. Awesome traditional red leather booths in the dining area by the bar.
