Though meals tend to bring friends together, meals peppered with magnets can push them apart. Enjoy an attractive repast with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of casual seafood and drinks at The Battered Fish. This Groupon is valid at the locations in Bedford and Halifax.
The culinary savants at The Battered Fish give hungry stomachs safe harbour with a menu of casual sea fare cooked fresh with each order using local ingredients and trans-fat-free oil. An appetizer of panko-crusted haddock bites ($5.99) beckons eaters to share morsels and dip them into a chili sauce as sweet as a baby cooing love ballads. Chefs use fresh, unfrozen haddock to fry up the eatery's signature fish and chips ($6.49–$10.49), which battles hunger growls alongside a helping of hand-cut-daily shoestring fries lauded in the Best Fries (Potato) category by The Coast's 2011 Best of Food Readers’ Poll. Forage through a lobster salad ($9.99) with claw and knuckle meat, or treat palates to digby clams and fries ($12.99). Homemade sauces such as tartar and wasabi mayo grant guests the power to customize their meal's flavours. Patrons can break from fishy fare and sink into an original foot-long hot dog ($4.99) that, like a potato sack worn as formal attire, can be topped in melted cheese or bacon bits ($0.99).
