I heard the famed Fish Truck now has a shop in Erindale. Can anyone confirm?

It was true, but the shop has now closed, and is available for lease again.

I can confirm that; and while it lasted it was great. The shop was far to big for the amount of trade there was and it closed shortly after Easter. I am missing the Orange Roughy and Snapper already.
If anyone knows if he has re-located please advise where.

Bought some ling fillets there on my way home. Proof will be in the eating.

There’s some law that all the fish sold in NSW and ACT has to come through the Sydney Fish Market. So yeah, pretty old fish.

Some operators here have cooked up special deals with fisher-folk on the coast, and if you know who they are, you can get some fresh stuff. But for most, it has to come from the sea, up to Sydney, and then down to here.

In the place where I used to live, a city 170 kms from the sea, fish restaurants used to share costs and helicopter in fresh fish every day.
Docked in the morning, on the table at night. The extra cost was absorbed because of the huge sales from the marketing…”caught fresh this morning”.

For the sake of 170kms it would probably be easier just to put the seafood in a refrigerated truck. It would be less than 2 and a half hours drive anyway.

Certainly here, in my old home town the trip would have taken about 4/5 hours with the traffic congestion.
I do love it here….:-)

I don’t know why people in the A.C.T expect their fish to be fresh, especially at the fish and chip shop I work at. We’re not a deli, and we are 150 odd kms from the sea. Do you think we teleport them here? Or maybe you think we catch ’em from LBG.

Yeah, 150km, an impossible distance for a truck to cover in a single day…

Where is it exactly?

I saw the sandwich board advertising ‘fresh fish’ on the weekend but didn’t spot the shop.

Somewhere near Maestral?

Yes.

I checked it out, apparently the people running it are from Batehaven but I don’t think it really matters.

Doesn’t our seafood have to go through the Sydney markets anyway?

What they were selling looked OK though I didn’t buy anything.

I remember a birthday lunch in Manuka a few years back where we had to delay ordering as most people wanted fresh sea-something or other and the truck carrying the catch of the day was running late from the coast.

Not personally, but a friend tried it last week and was VERY impressed.
