If you are in South Etobicoke, try Fifth Street Fish & Chips aka New Toronto Fish & Chips off of Lakeshore Blvd. Same friendly family owner now for over 40 years...husband, wife and kids. The decor is from the 70's! It's a great place with really good home cooked comfort food fish and chips. They also have good onion rings when I had them last a few years ago.

For dealmaker, who thinks good fish and chips places are only owned by Chinese people........... Well, the owners of this place are Chinese.

I really like Sea Witch too but Halibut House (St. Clair West/Keele and Victoria Park/Danforth) and Kingsway are almost as good in my opinion. Fries at Sea Witch are better than both.

Today (Good Friday) we first had F&C at St. Andrew's in Scarborough which was a busy sit down restaurant on this holiday. We left unsatisfied food wise and went for Round 2 of fish & chips at B&B in Leslieville. The halibut/chips there was just AWESOME at this takeaway only joint compared to the overrated St. Andrew's. It was so good, I'll even say it was better than Old Yorke's F&C. Gotta love these family owned Mom&Pop establishments for the best F&C in the city. Two thumbs up for B&B. Definitely the best F&C I've had in 2018 so far! Smiling Face With Sunglasses

^ The blogTO didn't even include B&B in the Leslieville neighborhood.

Very glad we ended up at B&B. We went to both St. Andrew's and B&B fish and chips because my friends wanted places that still used lard instead of vegetable oil for the frying.

One of my favorite places . Try Viking on Queensway across from Costco .

I just found out about Halibut House and their Sunday/Monday Haddock & Chips $8 special

Pretty good for the price

Will have to try their Wednesday King Cod & Chips $8 special

Is halibut that much more expensive than haddock?? Both are same size portions, fries, coleslaw... only the price is different. $12.95 vs $7.95. If so, haddock is the better deal. From menu...

Halibut $12.95

Haddock $7.95

Halibut is a much better piece of fish and, for me, worth the premium over haddock.

Yes, there is usually quite a difference in price between the two. When it comes to deep fried, I go with the cheaper option as it all tastes the same coming out of the fryer. lol.

Order the Haddock combo with an individual Halibut on the side. Compare the two that way.
(or better yet, blindfold yourself and see which one tastes better)
