There's no better place on the planet to get smoked fish than Rockway Bay, Oregon, home of Karla's.
Drove 50 miles out of my way to pick up the most luscious black cod, incredible Willapa Bay oysters, albacore tuna, and a piece of coho caught near the Canadian border.
The black cod was my favorite, transforming to a buttery texture as soon as it hits your palate. Is there any place in Seattle that does smoked black cod, aka sablefish?
The BBQ joint that shares the sign hasn't opened for the season yet, but Karla's keeps it real year-round. Like so many places on the coast, they do it old school. Which means you better bring cash, because they do not do plastic!
