How many Whales does it take?

Did you know the average Whale of a Cod is around 8 inches in length? That’s a lot of cod! If you measure Pittsburgh landmarks by this Whale-of-a metric, here’s how they stack up: 

  • U.S. Steel Tower (Downtown Pittsburgh) – 1,260 Whale of a Cod in height 
  • Point State Park Fountain – 225 Whale of a Cod high 
  • Steel Curtain roller coaster peak – 330 Whale of a Cod high 
  • Observatory Hill (the highest point in Pittsburgh) – 1,834.5 Whale of a Cod 
  • Cathedral of Learning – 802 Whale of a Cod 
  • USS Requin Submarine (docked at Carnegie Science Center) – 466 Whale of a Cods in length 
  • The Majestic ship (part of the Gateway Clipper Fleet) – 340 Whale of a Cods in length 
  • Sidney Crosby – 9 Whale of a Cods high 

Let’s get rid of the metric system and work on the cod system. Something everyone can agree on!

How Our Whale of a Cod is Made

One question we frequently get at Eat’n Park is just how is Whale of a Cod made?  

Well, it all starts at the tip of the Golden Triangle in Pittsburgh, where Monongahela, Ohio, and Allegheny rivers converge. Delicious cod washes up on the shores there. Then, a group of yinzer farmers picks the cod, wraps them in Terrible Towels to give them their golden color, and then places them in the Hays Bald Eagle nest until they’re ready to be sent to our restaurants.  

Once they arrive at Eat’n Park, team members carefully hand-bread the cod in panko breadcrumbs, and the Whale is then included in different dishes for guests to enjoy, like the Whale of a Cod, Whale of a Cod Sandwich, Whale & Mac, and Fisherman’s Platter.  

Now you know the long, strenuous journey of how a Whale of a Cod ends up on your plate or in your to-go box! Bet you never knew!

Mostly A’s – Whale of a Cod Dinner 
You’re classic. You prefer the OG, original version of things. You rarely see movie sequels, because why mess with excellence? You never go out of style because you have a timeless air about you. Whether it’s wearing blue jeans or eating a Smiley Cookie, you leave it to time-honored traditions and enduring trends to dictate your choices.  

Mostly B’s – Whale of a Cod Sandwich 
You’re a romantic. You follow your heart as well as your stomach. You love a good Hallmark movie, because you know it’s bound to have a happy ending. While some believe less is more, you believe more is more, which means that it’s okay to say yes to bread (infamous bread-lover Oprah would approve!).  

Mostly C’s – Whale & Mac 
You’re a comfort seeker. If you lived in Denmark, you would totally practice the art of Hygge, or the quality of coziness that causes contentment. You love watching a favorite movie or binging a favorite TV show in comfy clothes on your couch. Whether it’s a side of mac or cheese sticks, you believe everyone should indulge from time to time.   

Mostly D’s – Fisherman’s Platter 
You’re eclectic. You believe variety is the spice of life! You can’t decide what to watch on TV because you’d rather flip through the channels to see what else is on. As someone who’s always on the go, you’re a multi-tasker who wants the best of all worlds and is happy to mix a cup of coffee with a Superburger if it means getting to experience breakfast and lunch or dinner.
