One of the best orders of fish and chips in Seattle is actually a 35-minute ferry ride away on Bainbridge Island at Proper Fish. The greatest thing about this British spot, though, is how enormous their filets of fried cod are—they’re around a foot long, with a puffy beer batter that's cracklier than anything produced by a state fair. That, plus tasty minted peas, thick-cut fries, and tangy tartar, and there are plenty of reasons why we’d hop on a huge watercraft to grab lunch here.
