Summer afternoons are the ideal time to be outdoors with your mates, watching the sunset somewhere beautiful. This type of occasion is perfect for grabbing some fish and chips and enjoying our gorgeous Brisbane weather. To help you navigate the many fish and chip shops around the place, we’ve pulled together some of Brisbane’s best fish and chips!
The focus at Swampdog is ‘Good for you, good for me, good for the sea.’ Which, if you ask us, is the best possible approach to amazing fish and chips! Of course you’ll find fan favourites like local Whiting and chips, but you’ll also find amazing treats like cajun style grilled Cobia, grilled Barramundi and tempura, all cooked to perfection and served with perfect, hot chippies.
Based in Rosalie, Fish Lovers is a family owned shop that focuses on supplying the very best fresh, Queensland produce available. The fish here is beautifully battered, crumbed or grilled and is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. For a whole lot of fishy delishy, try the snapper with one of Fish Lovers’ freshly-made salads and a big ol’ serve of chips.
In the mood for something fancy? Need a way to impress the in-laws? We hear you. The food at Jellyfish is next level fish and chips! They offer mouth-watering options, like oven-baked Ocean Trout served with wasabi mayonnaise or grilled Yellowfin Tuna with Japanese soy & wasabi, or you can choose your cooking style and pair it with one of their divine sides. Don’t worry, they still serve chips!
A Salt & Battery
Located in St Lucia, the uni favourite, A Salt & Battery, should be on everyone’s fish and chip ‘to do’ list. The menu is simple, affordable and full of tasty options. The crumbed cod seafood meal see’s your fish covered in yummy crumby perfection then deep-fried to golden goodness and served with a big whack of chips and a heap of fresh salad. So good.
Chumley Warner’s Traditional British Fish and Chips
The guys at Chumley Warner aren’t messing around, they’re making bold statements like ‘Original and best British fish and chips in Australia.’ Yep, they’re claiming to do the best British fish and chips in the whole dang country and they’re right! You’ll find them offering imported North Atlantic fish like Haddock and serving it up British style with chips and sides of mushy peas and buttered mushrooms. All the English noms.
The Fish Factory
A favourite with the locals, The Fish Factory in Morningside has quite literally weathered fire and flood. You know their stuff is good because they’re a fresh seafood market, so everything you get to eat is incredibly fresh and the very best produce available. The menu includes fishy favourites like Whiting, Barramundi and King Snapper, but they also have extra treats like grilled Salmon, Moreton Bay Bugs and amazing fish burgers.
The Fishmongers Wife
No fish and chip list is complete without The Fishmongers Wife. This place is loved by Brisbanites everywhere and with good reason, the food here is top-notch. The must-try dish here is the beer battered fish and chips, which is the perfect mix of crunchy, golden beer batter and perfectly tender fish inside. They also serve up some pretty amazing King Snapper cooked with Tahitian lime and coconut marinade.
