“Just amazing fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

Hard to come up with a title that hasn't already been taken. And I don't even really like fish. There was no halibut when we went but the lingcod, much to my surprise, was amazing. You could tell how fresh the fish was. The fish was nice and thick and firm. The batter is nice and light and the slaw/fries were excellent. The portions are large so we ended up sharing three- two piece among the four of us and it was more than enough. I had the prawns the next night and they were good but nothing like the fish and chips. And for not having a dessert menu , my goodness I can't imagine trying to have dessert after that meal! They should just stick with what they do oh so well.

“BEST FISH AND CHIPS!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

Jiggers serves a delicate battered halibut with fries and slaw. We also had the shrimp!!! The portions are huge and well worth the wait!!! We went 2 times and could have gone very day. So yummy and super fresh fish that are plump.

“The Best Fish, Prawn and Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

Food truck. Super delicious tempura style fish or prawn and chips. Potatoes fresh cut. Not greasy. Large portions. Absolutely wonderful but not opened in rain. Blow can you not be opened in an area where it rains so frequently? LOVED the food. Need dessert options.

The best Fish & Chips I have ever eaten. I have aten here before and the halibut is excellent. Unfortunately no halibut left when I was there. But the lincod was good too.
