Mr. Pickwick's, the unofficial mayor of Marpole, has been around these parts for some time, cranking out fish 'n chips, and deep-fried Mars Bars. I've been here a couple of times wheneever I got a craving for something greasy and it's kind of nice once in a while......once in a while, haha!
Mr. Pickwick's is a tiny little place on the corner of 70th and granville, and if you blink, you will miss it. Better to look for the 7-11 and you'll have a better chance of finding it.
If you're going with someone, the best deals on weekends is 4 pcs cod and chips, comes out a bit cheaper than ordering two 2 pc combos.
2pc cod with chips and cole slaw.
2 pc cod and chips with something else that tasted like stuffing.
Nice, tender, moist fish, with a crispy batter. It's a pretty good bang for your buck, and I don't think there's another chip shop in the immediate area. The service is always friendly and the food is good.
While ordering my 4 pc cod and chips at Mr. Pickwick's, I noticed with my greedy little eyes tha Fresh Slice was giving away free pizza.
I think there was something going on in Marpole, some sort of festival or something. Normally, Fresh Slice would be an absolute last resort for me, but I was hungry and Free was a good price. Besides a nice greasy appie prior to my fish and chips couldn't hurt right?
