Former “Top Chef Canada” contender and Red Fish Blue Fish mastermind Kunal Ghose has joined forces with Hook Fine Foods entrepreneur Steve Kerr to offer downtown Victoria its next big foodie trend: a unique take on the tartine.
A Gold-Medal Plates alum, Ghose recently opened Fish Hook, a new Antique Row, Fort Street hotspot, in early August. Serving both sit down and take away customers, Fish Hook offers not only tartines, but a wide selection of salads, soups and daily-produced pickles, all featuring a variety of sustainable, locally sourced and farm fresh ingredients.
Created exclusively for Fish Hook, Ghose’s version of the tartine -- the iconic French open-faced sandwich -- combines the 30-year tradition of beautifully cured and smoked fish products offered through Kerr’s successful Hook Fine Foods, with locally grown heirloom vegetables and fresh bread sourced through another Victoria institution, Irene’s Bakery.
Fish Hook’s rotating menu debuted with a total of nine tartines, three salads, house pickled seasonal organic veggies, two mainstay meals – including a daily fish curry -- and a duet of soups – one chowder and one bisque.
Maintaining Ocean Wise, local and organic standards, Fish Hook also offers dairy-free, wheat-free and mayo-free alternatives, giving locals numerous healthy food options for lunch and dinner.
