terrific tuesday already? Pajo's

By gum!

So ... monetise or not?
My internal struggle (to put a grand and pretentious spin on it) about Brand Me and blogging for financial gain.

Well - it got us a slap up meal of fish and chips this weekend. Pajo's, a local legend, celebrated 25 years at its Port Moody location recently. It also sponsored that little shindig I went to a couple of weeks ago, slipping a cool gift certificate into my end-of-party gift bag alongside the diaper cream and fabric softener.

Pajo's 25y party - in fullswing, in the sunshine at Rocky Point #portmoody come on down!

More importantly, Mon who runs the Pajo's twitter introduced herself at the party, then thanked me for the retweets. She was the only "brand" who did say hi at the event.

It's a total pleasure! Pajo's is one of the reasons we ended up in PoMo. A day out from the city, sunny afternoon in Rocky Point park, fish and chip supper from Pajo's - we were sold on the location. And they've continued to be one of our summertime destinations ever since (and early/late season when we find them braving the elements). Queues can be a bit insane during the popular rush hour times but the quality is never compromised. Order early then play some frisbee while waiting to build up an appetite. Portions are generous, the lemonade thirst-quenching and don't forget the tartare sauce. My recommendation? get the three fish sampler and crunch through halibut, cod and salmon - an excellent share plate al fresco. Wee Guy gave the hot dog a thumbs up and reminded me that the fish nuggets between two make an excellent mid afternoon snack after swimming (Rocky Point pool is now open).

Pajo's - it's a pleasure to retweet you :)
Bon appetit!

Apart from the VancouverMom.ca Top 30 Blogger gift certificate, no money has changed hands here. The words and views and fish pics are my own.
