A lot of the best things I have eaten have come from a food truck. Jiggers is easily in my ‘best foods from a truck’ list. Their incredibly fresh fish and chips had me at first bite.
Jiggers is so smart. They have outdoor and indoor space so you can still enjoy the best fish and chips even in a west coast rainstorm. Truly genius.
Finally, the fish and chips. The catch of the day was cod. The fish was so very moist and fresh. The fish’s batter was speckled with herbs and it gave it the perfect crunch. I like to consider myself a tartar sauce connoisseur and theirs is definitely one of the best. It wasn’t too pickley and was perfectly creamy. The fries never got soggy. Another thing that I really liked at Jiggers was they provided their vinegars in spray bottles. I hate when I pour too much vinegar onto my fries but that never happens here. Lastly, the coleslaw had a nice taste to it and I liked its dressing. We got their 3 piece fish and chips to split between 2 people and we almost had a tough time finishing it. Their portions are huge.
Jiggers is currently my favourite place to have fish and chips. It makes sense that the best place for this would be in Ucluelet. I am a little sad that its so far away from me but happy that its in one of my favourite places that I know I will always come back to.
