Steveston - Fisherman's Wharf

It was a gorgeous day in Vancouver today, and lunch just had to be eaten outside. Since I’m too lazy to clean off my grill to make a burger, we headed down to the yee olde town of Steveston for a stroll by the water and a quick bite.

Steveston (formally called Historic Steveston Village) is located at the south west corner of Richmond, by the water. There’s about a dozen restaurants at the fisherman’s wharf lined up along the boardwalk. In the 6 blocks of land of the little town you’ll find the highest concentration of Fish & Chip places in all of Vancouver. I counted about 10 establishments with the word Fish somewhere in their billboard.

Pajo’s serves a few different variations of Fish & Chips, with different pricing options depending on the type of fish. There are burgers and side dishes available also, but the sign reads ‘famous for fish & chips’, so I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity.

We had the small order of Halibut and chips, which came wrapped in a newsprint cone that fits into a slot in the tables nearby. There’s also a good variety of self serve condiments by the window to go with your order.

Sitting down in the sun around the smiling young and old made the fresh and delicious meal all the more enjoyable.
