The art of knowing what to order is key to getting a good meal. If the place is called Cheeseburger Palace, don’t order the fish.
Other hints are special menus or chef specials. These are the things chefs really want to prepare. Sometimes the other dishes on the menu are items they have to offer to run a successful business. That’s not your business. Your business as an eater is to find the best thing on the menu and eat it.
WildFin American Grill’s The Daily Catch window on Vancouver’s waterfront looks like the perfect place to get fish and chips, and it is.
As any resident of the Pacific Northwest knows, if you’re given a choice of Alaskan halibut or cod, you get the halibut.
Yes, The Daily Catch has a light but creamy seafood chowder with a nice mix of diced veggies and fish. There’s also the blackberry basil lemonade — a thirst-relieving mouthful of berries tempered with lemonade with just a hint of refreshing fresh basil. (No one wants to drink a cup of pesto.)
