A new Spud Fish & Chips opened yesterday in Edmonds.
My wife and I picked up supper yesterday at the new Edmonds Spuds. Pretty dissapointing.
It's really sad the Spuds of 2015 is such a poor substitute for the Spuds of the past. The fish is cut very thin now and everything else (like salmon, clams, etc. is frozen and pre-portioned in plastic bags so the amount of waste generated is stunning. The heavy breading and tarter sauce recipies haven't changed so they still taste the same as the old days.
I used to go to Spuds other locations from time to time. For the last 10 years or so, I quit going. I was hoping the new Edmonds location would be better. Sadly, it is not.
The choices Spuds management has made to cheapen the quality and experience will likely kill this Seattle area icon sooner rather than later. It's a great location by the ferry holding lanes. They are so slow that this will be a huge irritation to people that have to catch the ferry before their order comes up.
Don't expect this Spuds to last long.
Sad all around.
