Following our trip to the outlets, we decided to hit Fillmore street, home to many boutique shops I wanted to visit. We also were excited to be here because of the Woodhouse Fish Company. We had searched up where we could get lunch around this area the night before and settled for this place.
We actually arrived quite late for lunch, around 3-4pm. The place was very quiet, with about 2 other tables other than us. We read the menu quickly and settled with our picks with anticipation.
After having the Scoma cold crab, I had been craving for more crab. So I ordered the Toasted-Buttered Dungeoness Crab Roll. It was absolutely delicious. They gave generous portions of crab, which was of good quality due to its sweetness. The roll was nicely buttered and toasted, giving the perfect smoothness that the crab needed. Without a doubt, if I came back here I’d order the same thing. The fries were not anything to be mentioned. The coleslaw was advertised as house-made, and was pretty good. However I wish they gave a little bit more so I could truly taste it.
Tfung ordered the Baja-Style Fish Tacos. I thought the fish was too dry and the batter they fried it in was horrible. The tacos were cold and powdery. I wasn’t a huge fan of the sauce as I felt it didn’t mesh everything together properly. It was like someone just threw random ingredients together that didn’t fit well. Tfung thought it was pretty good, but I thought the Tres Carnales fish tacos from Edmonton were way better.
Overall their service was pretty good but it was hard to determine, as it was the slowest time of the day. The server was nice, friendly and gave us good time to decide what we wanted to order. He did disappear for a while when we were ready to pay, but we just got his attention when he reappeared.
