Vancouver Foodster presents the Fish and Chips Challenge

This is our first Fish and Chips Challenge featuring 7 restaurants in Vancouver, Langley and North Vancouver, that runs from September 4-26, 2014. The interpretation of fish and chips takes on different meanings in many cultures and you will find several variations in the fish and chip creations the chefs have entered into this challenge.

Participating restaurants are showcasing Fish and Chips creations that were created just for this challenge and all will be offered in all of these restaurants during the challenge period .

For our Challenges, we have 2 sets of winners. The People’s Choice winners will be selected by the public who are invited to visit any of the participating restaurants and order the Fish and Chips creations and then decide on which ones they think are worthy of winning the challenge by casting their votes.

For this challenge we have 3 media judges and they are:
