PTFCA Food Cart Preview: June 15 & 16 - Pirates Fish and Chips

By Alex Dubov

In Portland we do things a little different: the people, the soccer, the beer, and now the fish and chips. This Saturday and Sunday, you can experience all it together at JELD-WEN Field.

The Portland Timbers Food Cart Alliance is proud to welcome Pirates Fish and Chips to JELD-WEN Field for the Portland Timbers vs. FC Dallas on Saturday (2pm PT, ESPN, 750 The Game / La Pantera 940), and Portland Thorns FC vs. Seattle Reign FC on Sunday (2pm PT, TICKETS, webstream, Freedom 970.

Based in Hood River, OR, Pirates Fish and Chips was opened in 2012 by restaurateurs Richard and Sherri Wilson. The couple owned and operated an Italian restaurant in Arizona, but the long hours and struggling economy led them to sell their business and relocate to Oregon.

After discovering the Portland food cart craze, but struggling to find fish and chips one night, Richard and Sherri decided it was time to do it themselves. Their fish and chips are made from fresh fish sourced from the coast that includes cod, halibut, albacore tuna, and rockfish, served with house made tartar sauce and a batter that never leaves your hands greasy.

Richard and Sherri say that serving at JELD-WEN Field this weekend is the greatest opportunity they’ve had thus far. They know it will be a lot of work, but they are looking forward to sharing their culinary creations with 20,000 fans.

As of right now, Pirates Fish and Chips only has one location in Hood River, Oregon, but Richard and Sherri say they are in the process of opening a second truck in Portland later this season. For now, however, fans can get a sneak peek at Pirates Fish and Chips this Saturday and Sunday at the Soccer City Grill above Section 93.

The menu for Saturday and Sunday will include:

2PC Fish & Chips Basket
2 pieces of fresh Pacific True Cod served with house made tarter sauce, fresh natural cut fries and pirates magic coleslaw

Grilled Salmon Burger & Fries
4oz of Fresh Grilled Salmon on a toasted bun served with fresh natural cut fries &
 house made tarter sauce and topped with pirates magic coleslaw
