Fish and Chips

$19.95 · 11 Reviews

It’s #fishfriday and I’m again in the mood for some fish and chips. Got the Snapper Fish & Chips ($16.50) from @greenwoodfishmarket not too long ago to satisfy my fish and chips cravings.

Think crisp, light batter that encases the three pieces of flaky, mildly flavoured snapper. You could tell that the snapper was fresh and I like how the batter isn’t filled with oil till the point that it bloats up your stomach.

For the chips, they are freshly fried till crispy yet retaining the potato’s fluffiness on the inside. But the problem is these medium cut chips turn soggy will fast when you takeaway. So best is to douse it with some malt vinegar.

Sad to say, the newly launched Mushy Peas ($5.95) was dry and lumpy. The kitchen has some work to do here.

What’s served at Greenwood Fish Market’s version is the Australian fish and chips. I’m inherently biased and I very much prefer British fish and chips.

Also on offer are the House Fish & Chips ($11.50) and Barramundi Fish & Chips ($16.50).

Have tried this multiple times (but it's been a while since my last visit) and I'm glad that it's still good! They use catfish in this. The fish was soft and flaky, encased in thin layer of batter which had a crunch. The chips were hot and crisp. It's good and reliable fish and chips, this is something that we get almost every time we visit.

calamari and the bread was def the star of the night!!! the calamari was lightly seasoned and the batter albeit soft was sufficiently crunchy. perhaps my standards are a bit low but most places that serve calamari are so horrible that this is pretty high on my list.
the bread were glorious. soft, fluffy, and warm. we’re willing to go all the way back just for the bread.
the mains were super lackluster on the other hand. the barramundi was super fishy at points and the mashed potato was hard (not jk). the fish and chips batter was soft (is it a trend by now) and completely unseasoned - in short, super unpalatable

The sister has been on the hunt for a comparable Fish and Chips to that we had in New Zealand which is made using Cherry Snapper. So when we found out about the wide variety of fish selection and cooking methods at Greenwood Fish Market, we were thrilled to give it a try.

Three long pieces of fresh red snapper coated thinly with a crisp non-greasy batter, deep-fried till bright golden yellow. Not extremely impressive but more, a simple heartwarming fish and chips. Rounded the dish up with some thick cut chips (not to my liking personally because it feels soggy easily) and mesclun salad on the side, along with tartar sauce and sweet chili. Btw, the sister picked out a fish bone.

Crisp, non-oily batter, fresh john dory fillet within. Piping hot medium-cut chips and fresh salad. Chili was, oddly enough, slightly salty.

I wanted calamari and fish & chips, so we had the seafood basket that had all the fried goodies :) came with mussels and fried prawns too. Their batter is really one of the best. Seafood and white wine for a mid week break!
