Comptoir 21 Fish & Chips [Montreal]

After several different friend highly recommending Comptoir 21 (@Comptoir21Fish), we just had to drop by and it end up being the first stop of our 3 day Montreal trip.

The menu is pretty simple with mainly Fish & Chips (duh) selection and includes other things like hotdog and burger for the non-fish eater.
Love the U-shaped bar table where the waitress can bring everything from kitchen to table. The space was rather small and you may need to wait a bit for a seat but the turnaround is pretty quick.

Homemade Clam Chowder $5.95
 We started with their New England style chowder and it was rich, creamy and super thick.

You can choose form Fish only, Fish&Chips, Fish&Poutine and Fish&Salad and comes in half size, small size and full size.
Large Fish & Poutine $15.95
This was the full size version which comes with 3 big piece of fish. It was light and fluffy in a crispy battered perfection plus love how the fish was piping hot when you cut into it. It also came with a choice of sauces and we choose the original tartar sauce and that was the only thing I didn't like about the whole dish. The tartar sauce was a tad bland with not enough "sour/tart" in it and wish they was bigger bits of pickles in it. The poutine was surprisingly good with the traditional thick gravy and cheese curds.

Large Fish & Salad $15.95
Side of salad is a much healthier option and a welcoming refreshing to the deep fried fish.

Love the spray bottle of vinegar, no soggy fries from heavy hand or "pour-too-much-accident" here

Didn't really got a good photo of the outside (ahem, someone forgot to switch the camera settings and yes that's you Ben) but thought it has a pretty cool effect after twitching it a bit.

Love it, would definitely come back when in Montreal in the future.
Very well price yummy deep fried cod fish with the perfect poutine on the side (^_<)
