I came to Fairbanks as the last stop on my family vacation with Princess Cruises and ate dinner at Chena’s both nights we were in town. The first evening I had the blueberry cod which was fresh, cooked to perfection, and had a wonderful sauce. For dessert we had the fresh berry cream cake made with mascarpone and accompanied by a huckleberry ice cream which was the highlight of the dish.
The second evening I had the pan seared halibut which was even better and in my opinion, fresher than the cod I had the prior evening. The vegetables and basmati rice made for a perfectly portioned meal.
Overall, Chena’s is a true gem in the lovely little ‘city’ of Fairbanks.
