I was out on a mad dash buying birthday presents but a gal has gotta stop for lunch. Conveniently located off Bunda street, The Fish Shack only uses fresh Australian sustainable fish while making everything fresh to order.
Beef burger – prime beef, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, red onion and tomato chilli relish ($13.50). This looked like a really good juicy patty and it tasted like a well seasoned rissole. I personally prefer cheese on my burger (well cheese on anything really) and I’m tempted to get a burger next time.
Fish and chips – large size premium beer battered fish served with chips, dips and lemon ($13.50). I couldn’t go to the Fish Shack and not order fish and chips! Boasting ‘the best beer batter’ using Burleigh 28 Pale ale, I opted for the beer batter fish while resisting getting my usual favourite of crumbed fish. A great coating served hot and not oily, I still think the crumbed would have been better or maybe that’s just a personal preference.
With a simple ordering system of ordering and paying at the counter, food comes out relatively quick and hot. Despite being busy this doesn’t compromise their quality of food. There were a lot of things that caught my eye on the menu that I would like to come back and try.
