The Codmother Fish & Chips- San Francisco

Anyone that has looked for good fish & chips in San Francisco knows how hard it is to find. Trying to find quality fish & chips at a reasonable price (sub-$10) in the City is nearly impossible. After passing by the Codmother (2824 Jones Street) on numerous occasions, I’d always wondered how it was. It is a trailer parked  semi-permanently in the Fisherman’s Wharf area. It’s located off the main tourist drag across the street from Walgreen’s hidden among a few other food trucks. There is a nice patio area for seating out front, and it is blocked from the wind and has nice umbrellas for those rare sunny San Francisco days.


The order of fish & chips ($9.25) gets you 2 generous sized pieces of firm yet flaky cod, and a nice serving of chips. The chips are double fried and have a crispy exterior and are nice and fluffy inside. The fish was nicely cooked, with a crispy, flaky exterior that holds onto the fish. It is served hot, and the portion is plenty for one person, and makes a good snack to share as well. There is malt vinegar on the tables, but the tartar sauce, if you are so inclined, comes in individual packets.

Other items on the menu are limited to Baja style fish tacos ($5.25), chicken strips, corn dogs and assorted fried desserts. Snickers, Twinkies and Oreos. It is a great find for SF visitors, as it provides a great food quality/price value for the Fisherman’s Wharf area. Junkfoodie says check it out if you are in the area!
