Ocean Fish and chips Cottage
In my fast-food years, when McDonald’s was a frequent stop, I was always the token soul who ordered a Filet-O-Fish instead of a Big Mac. That’s how much I love fried fish sandwiches. It was never hard to find good ones when I lived on the East Coast, where small seaside shacks serving lobster rolls, fried clams and the like are commonplace. But in Sacramento, even places that serve fish and chips don’t always serve fish sandwiches, suggesting this is not exactly a fish sandwich town. Here are five exceptions to the rule, all of them under $8, listed in order of personal preference.
TUGBOAT FISH & CHIPS (7601 Fair Oaks Blvd., Carmichael)
Admittedly, I may be partial to this place because it reminds me of the seafood shacks I loved back East. In addition to the blue-andwhite nautical theme, this tidy little shop also boasts a nice patio, so it’s perfect for dining al fresco. (The only thing missing is the seashore.) But the food is great, too. My fish, served on a roll, was crispy and clean, reminiscent of tempura, and accompanied by thick tomato slices, crunchy romaine, onion and plenty of creamy tartar sauce. It came served in a basket on a decent-size pile of basic fries and a few onion rings. Unusually friendly service, too.
PRICE: $6.49 (including fries)
CAPE COD FISH & CHIPS (5113 Folsom Blvd.)
When The Boyfriend—an East Coast native himself—bit into the sandwich from this casual East Sacramento spot, all I heard was an “mmm.” He said he liked everything about it—the sauce, the crunch, the flavor. I had to agree that the sandwich was on par with Tugboat’s and followed the same formula: crisp, nongreasy fish served on a roll with lettuce, onion, tomatoes and tartar. The fish was even fatter here, actually, and the pile of fries was bigger, but I still give Tugboat a slight edge—partly because of the patio (and just because).

Good Fishing places in New Haven wanted2008-11-19 06:26:21 by Gem_Leo
My husband and I maybe moving to New Haven soon. We are both into fishing. I am trying to find out the best places near or on a lake. At least a boat landing.
I really don't want a city appartment. Would like out skirts. Like 30 mints. tops out of NH area.
P.S. List what type of fish are caught in the area would also be helpful. Lakes & Ocean.
