50th & Division
Year of the Fish
We ventured out to the food carts on Division and 50th. I had never been there, but was drawn by the selection. There was also a big enough group of us that we could sample our way around, and sample we did.
Year of the Fish caught my eye. I had seen them on Facebook and seen a few comments, but I just couldn’t remember what it was I should order. Don’t worry the owner walked us through it.
We wanted to try the Fish and Chips and he said they were good. That was good enough for me. I will admit that I’m not a huge fan of fried food, but it’s mostly because some fried food is so heavy you can’t even stand it after you eat it. Others when done correctly can make a good thing great.
When they came out I immediately
took pictures started checking out the batter that he used. I liked it because it was a light and crispy batter. It was not heavy when you ate it. It was very good and the steak fries were also a hit. )No fish chips were left behind in this dining experience.)
My only regret is that after we were done and leaving I stopped to talk to the owner again and he told me how great their clam chowder was. Dang it!! How had we not seen that?!! Well I guess a trip back will be in order.
I loved reading through their website and seeing this gem
We hand make everything right here in the trailer; Clam Chowder (New England), Cole Slaw, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce, Tempura, Salmon Fritters, Dipping Sauce for the Fritters, and rough cut Plank Style Chips. I do my business with local purveyors. I source my seafood locally as much as possible when possible. I recycle everything I can. I use canola oil in the deep fryers, olive oil in the saute, and sea salt is the only salt.
That right there is why I love locally owned restaurants and have a great deal of respect for those doing it all in a food cart.
