Pajo’s Fish & Chips (Steveston Wharf)

It’s been a few years since I first ate at Pajo’s down on the Steveston Wharf but I’ve been determined to come back.  It’s just that Steveston is a bit of a drive for me and, being an outdoor eatery, it’s best to save this for a sunny day. 

As you can see below, the sun was cooperating in July and they had their bright yellow umbrellas out to provide some shade from the rays.

I ordered a small Halibut and Chips ($10.99) with a side order of Coleslaw ($1.69).  Their fish and chips come served in a cardboard cone which makes it easy to hold as you eat.  Alternatively, their tables have holes cut in them that are perfectly shaped to hold your fish and chips container.


Before I talk about the halibut, I have to mention that the coleslaw was perfectly creamy and crunchy at the same time.  Speaking of perfect, you can’t go wrong with ordering their halibut and chips.  Oftentimes, I order halibut and chips at restaurants only to have the fish overcooked or covered in really thick batter.  Pajo’s batter is on the thinner side compared with some places but the halibut was cooked perfectly.  The large flakes of flesh were super moist… if I knew this was going to be so good, I would have ordered the large size.  Underneath the halibut was their equally scrumptious locally-grown Kennebec fries.  Don’t bother with ketchup… just ask for some extra tartar sauce and you’re all set.


If you’re looking for some serious fish and chips, try Pajo’s.
