I've commercial fished for many years and so far have only had decent fish & chips in Seattle, and many years ago (not Ivars, which is a burn in portionsize and price), in small places on the waterfront, one place where the oysters were as big as your fist (tangy, not "what's-the-point-of-liking-them"-mild) and the fries were baked quarter-lengths of potatoes! "Dave's" like a "Barbs" on the dock in Vic. is 'you'll leave hungry' unless you eat the massive amounts of oily hard batter and banal chips and, under the batter, there's the chintzy small piece of frozen for weeks (taste the tell all there) and weeks fish. Lower Mainland and Victoria may have fair fish and chips places, but I havn't found any yet!

food and ambiance. service ho ho hum. when I was a kid 20+ years ago, Foo's and the Ho Ho were two different, close-by places. GREAT western style chinese, Foo's a big round table, big dishes, etc. looks like they've joined forces merged. chinatown's fun no matter what? good kongee places close by (thick rice soup), enough msg root to tasty good. If its the same family's kids now inheriting the fam business/es above, then Foo's Ho Ho will make you happy for the buck and, mainly, fill you up? not a bad risk to take? don't do shrimp or it'll be import cultured stuff (spelled m-e-r-c-u-r-y), not wild-caught.
