Fish Frenzy, Hobart

While RJ and I were honeymooning in Tasmania in May we were fortunate enough to stumble across Hobart's best fish and chip shop, Fish Frenzy.

It's official!

The menu was extensive, but we couldn't go past the "Fish Frenzy" which comprised two pieces of crumbed fish, scallops, calamari and chips - all for the bargain price of $13.50! The food arrived promptly and tasted delicious. I remember that the two pieces of fish weren't the same, but now I can't recall what either of them was at all! And the calamari, chips and scallops were all just right.

I dislike stinginess, so I was delighted at the generous quantities of lemon. There was plenty to squeeze into my glass of water! And...after we'd started eating I decided that I'd like to try some chilli and lime mayo, which was 50 cents for a little tub. The nice Fish Frenzy man refused to let me pay for it! Top marks for generosity!

So if you find yourself in Hobart, make sure you visit Fish Frenzy. The service, food and atmosphere were all fantastic!

    Yum! These look great! I lerve fish and chips.

    And that is funny that we both had chip posts at the same time. Altho' I shouldn't be surprised by now, should I? lol

    I agree with you on the lemon too. I always have to beg and plead for another wedge!

    Hey AG, it is funny that we both posted on fish & chips at the same time. Coincidence #385974 :)

    Hey Clare Eats, my thoughts exactly!

    One of the fish most certainly was barramundi, which they also serve as a separate plate. According the the Sydney Morning Herald, FF's got the best fish 'n chips in OZ. I'd certainly agree, given my three weeks travels in search of the best!

    Barramundi is a *great* fish--now being imported into the US, yee-hah!
