The finest fish and chips served by a Scottish gentleman. We were mildly hungry and the haddock large portion was just perfect for two to share. If I would live in the area it would be our place to go.

We ordered the Large Cod & Chips. There were two very large pieces of fish and enough chips that the container wouldn't close. Tiny container of cole slaw (would have been nice to have more to balance out the large portions). Fun street food option.

It's nice that you can pick from different kinds of fish. He has cups with lids to place condiments if you ask for them.

Authentic fish and chips done to perfection. This is a walk-up trailer that is part of a large Portland food truck location. Fair price, great food. There is a park across the street that is popular for sitting and having lunch. Try the sauces. I...More
