Team Panko or Team Beer Batter? These fish and chips prove it’s all good

Marination Ma Kai
Cod is first dipped in beer batter and then coated in panko, producing a supremely crispy exterior that holds up well to miso or kimchi tartar sauces (you’ll want one of each for dipping). $12. West Seattle, 1660 Harbor Ave. SW; 206.328.8226; marinationmobile.com
 

Nosh
Many call this food truck's impressively large Pacific cod fillet, which is lightly dipped in a pilsner-style microbrew batter, the best fried fish in the city. The accompanying chips and minty, mushy peas keep it traditional. $10. For truck’s weekly schedule, consult
noshthetruck.com.
 

Pacific Inn
Come for the beer, stay for the fish: a longtime fan favorite for its flavorful, peppered breading. $7.99. Fremont, 3501 Stone Way N; 206.547.2967
 

Elysian Brewing Company
A portion big enough for two, the lunch platter features four pieces of flaky Alaskan cod dipped in a batter made with Elysian’s The Wise ESB. The wedge fries get our vote for the best alternative to standard chips. $14. Tangletown, 2106 N 55th St.; 206.547.5929; elysianbrewing.com
 

Spud Fish & Chips
It’s nearly twice the price of the cod, but the firm, meaty halibut option is a class above—and worth the extra few bucks. $17. Alki Beach, 2666 Alki Ave. SW; 206.938.0606; spudfishandchips.comGo back to the main Seafood Guide article.
