When: Friday, April 22nd, 2011 (Good Friday)
What: Small Fish & Chips and small poutine
I had my annual fish and chips on Good Friday at William's Seafood in Fredericton, New Brunswick. This year I wanted to get a fish and chips with poutine so that's what I ordered. William's does not have a fish, chips and poutine special on the menu, so you have to order two separate items. I got a small fish and a small poutine.
As you can see from the photo above, the gravy on the poutine does not look very appetizing. The fries were good as per usual, and so were the curds. It's good that they actually do use real curds and not shredded mozzarella like some places. The gravy was a gelatinous glob with very little flavour. It was almost pudding like, which is not a desirable quality in a gravy. I will definitely pass on the poutine next time I am at William's.
I don't really want to mark this meal too low as the fish was great as usual, but the poutine was disappointing.
This time, I give William's Seafood 3 little fishies out of 5.
