Why we love it: This Tom Douglas seafood palace at Pike Place Market is rightly famous for its crab cakes and big-ticket salmon preparations, but the fried true cod caught in Alaska is an outstanding and affordable option that's often overlooked.
The details: Panko makes the breading super crisp, perfectly enveloping the juicy fish fillets that are not too thick or too thin. Shoestring fries are hand-cut, and the potato flavor comes through like a foghorn on a stormy night. Crunchy slaw is made to order, tossed in a malt vinegar-based dressing.
Know this: Add a couple of oysters and Baja shrimp for a killer combo plate.
