Where is Australia’s BEST fish and chips?

Article image for Where is Australia’s BEST fish and chips?

Easter is the busiest time of year for the hundreds and thousands of fish and chip shops around the country.

But which is the best one?

Which has the crispiest chips, flakiest batter, freshest sashimi, most delectable barramundi, creamiest oysters!

We could go on but it’s up to you! Voting for Australia’s best fish and chips is now open.

How they’re judged:

Taste [40%] – Does the seafood taste good? Cooking method will be key here – using the right approach for the right fish and doing it well to make your seafood sing.

Service [30%] – Does the service meet customer expectations? Everything from the welcome to the goodbye is important.

Choice [10%] – Does the menu offer customers options? Different types of fish or seafood; local or imported; cooking methods [grilled, fried, etc.]; and preparations battered, crumbed or natural.

Information [10%] – Are customers provided with accurate information about the source and qualities of the seafood? The menu must comply with the Australian Fish Names Standard [] and accurately label the seafood’s provenance to a national level, or better.

Presentation [10%] – Is the store clean and inviting? Is the food packaged well to maintain quality?

Deborah Knight speaks with Peter Horvat from the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation about how the awards are run and which shops are expected to feature in 2019.

Last year Albany’s Hooked on Middleton Beach took out the top gong, with Steve Price popping for a visit during his Western Australia road trip.
