A&W Canada: Wild-Caught Cod Burger

Diana Chan June 13, 2018 British Columbia, Fast Food

I love it when I see new items at A&W. They recently introduce their Cod Burger and Cod Wrap for a limited time only. They have never had a fish burger on the menu yet, so this give customers a new option. I got this for lunch as a meal and upgraded it to onion rings instead of fries.

Cod Burger

You will find hand cut strips of sustainably sourced cod, coleslaw and tartar sauce between two buns. As the cod is in strips, it was like fish sticks, but more moist of course. The cod held tightly between the bun and didn’t shift too much. The sandwich itself isn’t too large, so I felt like I needed the onion rings and drink to get to that point.

A&W has partnered with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to be able to get their burger and wrap certified as wild and sustainable. It’s a big step as not all fast food companies can say their seafood is caught with sustainable practices and keep the oceans well balanced to keep the ocean healthy.

Catch the Cod Burger or the Cod Wrap for the limited time since you never know when it will be off the menu.

    Just had their cod burger…total waste of $6.00!!

    It looks nothing like the burger i expected based on their advertising and certainly not fresh. Being from Nfld. I know fresh cod this is not worth the cost.

    I had the burger and the wrap a couple days ago and it was amazing. I found it tasted and the texture was like a piece of fish you would get at a fish and chips place. So great.

    Apparently a limited time offer? I don’t know if they mean the pricing or the product offering because making all that investment for a limited time run (supporting fish/marine life sustainability) and the product development costs temporarily seems stupid unless hey are doing the KFC thing (ie. Double down) where they bring something for a short time and then pull it and then bring it back again for another quick short time.

    Why is it that you people don’t have a seniors price for us 65 and over, especially for the fish burger/Code. You should know by now that most of us are a fixed income and simply cannot afford your high prices for the food and then having to buy a drink on top and by chance fries or Onion rings. Give us a break on your prices for us 65 and over and start showing that your company cares about us seniors.

    I had the new cod burger yesterday and was disappointed in how it tasted. It was dry because it was skimpy on the sauce and had only a few strands of cole slaw. The fish was overcooked and dried out. However, I could tell that if it was properly cooked and put together that it would be delicious. The fish looked quite flaky and not pressed like a lot of other fish burgers.
    A&W needs to train their chefs a little better especially when it comes to new items on the menu. Management needs to check more for quality control.
