I’m Not Looking For A New England Clam Chowder. I’m Just Looking For Another Girl.

Due to the fact that I don't eat sea bugs, I've never ingested Clams of any sort, until recently. If I had known that Clam Chowder tasted like rich buttery Alfredo sauce, surely I would have tried this shit years ago. As it turns out my allergies to ocean insects have subsided to a degree. I enjoyed the soup without being fully choked out.  My ears and throat where a little itchy, but that was the extent of it. This Chowder and Ahi Tuna Club sandwich combo certainly hit the spot.

Note: I couldn't help but to notice that at Coast every guest is treated as though they are wealthy. Cloth napkins are placed on your lap, and wine glasses are used, even for water. This is standard protocol, even for those who look like dirtbags.  What a nice feature.

I Could Really Use Some Fish Right Now, Fish Right Now, Fish Right Now.

If you like donuts then you are going to love these Halibut Bites at the Brazen Head. They were as soft as marshmallows. We had quite the evening at the Brazeen Heed. In fact, if I had not stumbled upon this image on my phone, I would have never been able to recall exactly what took place over the weekend.

Read fast, it will sound more exciting: Play in amateur baseball game. Run out of beer in 2nd inning. Reload beer by 4th inning. Win game. Celebrate at Brazen Head. Order food and spirits. Wonder if Krispy Kreme themselves are responsible for creating the wonderful Fish Bites? Pay outlandish bill. Order more drinks. Pay second outlandish bill. Fall off bike. Fall asleep on couch. Wake up. Sun Tan. Fall asleep in the sun. Dream about Fish Bites. Attend Much Music Awards After Party. Hit Bottle service. Fall on a Raptor. Leave party by force. Fall asleep on couch. Get on an airplane. Find image of Fish  Bites on phone. Feel both physically and emotionally empty inside. Cry. Repeat cycle. Wow. I love Toronto.

Note: Fell on a Raptor? You may be thinking: Does he mean fell off a rafter? No, I mean fell on an actual  7ft Toronto Raptor. A player. Fuck.

Gimme Shelter.

As soon as I saw this style of Yam fry I felt this place had to be related to the Cactus Club in some way. I'm not sure if this is true but the yam would say otherwise. I know my yams. Either way, Shelter in Tofino, BC. makes an awesome Halibut Burger to go with these crispy yam fries. The older I get the more I am beginning to really like the fish.  I suppose it's hard not to like anything that has been battered and deep fried. What a wonderful treatment.
