Ethan Stowell has a new fish 'n' chips place in Ballard called Chippy's. Fish 'n' chips there cost—GASP OH MY GOD I KNOW!!!—$14 to $18. But when's the last time you went to Ivar's? The aggressive seagulls at the one on the waterfront are more gigantic and terrifying and awesome than ever, and even Ivar's rings in at $9.29 to $13.99 for fish 'n' chips these days.

I went to both to compare. The things I do for you! Here's the full Ivar's versus Chippy's report.
