Was it about a year ago that Pajo's at Garry Point Park closed? At any rate, it was replaced by Garry Point Grill and Fish & Chips and I happened to notice that they had some menu choices that Pajo's didn't have namely vegan items. We happen to love Steveston and arrived Saturday in the middle of the Steveston Grand Prix of Art which we certainly could have spent more time absorbing had we anticipated it. Even with an event ongoing and it being a beautiful summer day, Steveston is still accessible with plenty of parking and places to eat.
Garry Point Grill & Fish & Chips - Vegan Options
Busy as it was, GPG seems to be well organized and we did not have to wait long for our order even though everything was freshly made. We were able to score a picnic table in the shade but be prepared to sit in the grass or on the beautiful beach to enjoy your eats.
We started with a Taco Salad. This was refreshing and pretty tasty. Black beans provided the substance and some tortilla chips provided the taco part. Other than that there were the usual suspects including corn, greens and lettuce. Sorry for the colour rendering! Between the sun and reflections and so on, it was a little tough even to make this presentable! It looked better in person.
The Chicken Strips and Fries were what you'd expect. These strips seemed to be tofu based and were pretty good. They were just nicely salty and even a bit crispy. My wife was not super keen on the fries but they are fish and chips appropriate and so that's what they serve.
They also serve a vegan Garden Veggie Burger. This was a commercially made patty (maybe Yves?) but not bad. I almost prefer this on a burger compared to a "meat " patty. It had some nice char and a bit of cumin taste. Rice and vegetables seem to be the main part of the patty and it was pretty tasty. The bun was good and it came with the usual condiments.
The Tempura Green Beans were a very pleasant surprise. Crispy outside but still pretty firm inside and tasting like green beans. Nicely done!
So it's not the most brilliant vegan eats we've ever had but we don't expect it to be! It was actually pretty good by fast food standards. We're just impressed that a beachfront food stand is giving some thought to feeding the vegans when most places stick with the high profit guaranteed sellers like hot dogs and fries and fish and chips. Thanks GP Grill!
