When in the Northwest Territories Capital city of Yellowknife, a must stop for some incredible ‘Fish & Chips’ is Bullock’s Bistro. Located in the Old Town, in an old building full of character, run by a very friendly and talented chef named Andre, it is one of my absolute favorite restaurants. Ever. 🙂 Any time I am back in home in Northern Canada, and in YK, I make it a point to go and eat there.
What are you waiting for?! Come on in!
It is by no means a high end restaurant, its more of a relaxed environment, where you can just chill out, take a load off and give your tastebuds a run for their money. You can help yourself to the drink fridge, unless its a Alcohol filled beverage you are after, in which case you will have to ask for assistance. There is a tiny patio outside as well, where in the summer you can enjoy the ambiance of the outdoors while deliting your palate.
It’s considered a bit pricey by some, with a fish and chip meal begining at about $26, but the fish is fresh from the ‘Great Slave Lake’, and you get a good portion, with fresh cut chips(not sure if he picked the potatoes himself tho, a salad, and ridiculously delicious hot out of the oven buns. On a day where the reel won’t stop turning, and there are lots of good catches, you can be lucky enough to have the wide array of options that consist of Whitefish, Cod, Pike, Trout, Pickerel, and Arctic Char.
I don’t know, but I do not mind paying the price for the quality, and freshness. It is well worth it.
One thing Bullock’s in known for is their secret sauce they make, that you pour on your fish. It truly is delicious!! Hmmm, and as would everyone else, I want to know what’s in it!! They also have a really delicious home made feta dressing for the salad, which I thoroughly enjoyed! 😉 All these little touches just add to the dining experience. If you want to get into the true spirit of visiting this little Bistro, then you can grab a pen and leave your mark on the wall. The whole place is covered in people’s markings;) So of course I got right in there!! Gotta keep the traditions rollen on!:)
Make sure you go there with an appetite and sweat pants. Cause you are gonna leave full and your top button of your pants undone. Yes, if you want a truly nothern experience, in a way that you don’t have to physically go out and catch some fish yourself(although, that’s always fun too!), then ‘Bullock’s Bistro’ is a great choice, and will provide you with nothing less then a memorable experience. DeeeeLish!!
