Bought a dozen oysters from the Weston store last night and they were fantastic.

From “them”, huh? :-/

I smell something fishy…. *tsh boom*

But, guess I’ll give it a go as I’m missing my oysters.
… Come to think of it, isn’t the month for oysters those with R in them? (i.e. May, June, July, August are off-season for oysters)

I use to get my oysters from oyster haven but since prestige oysters opened in kippax i get mine from them cos it’s closer to where i am. I don’t have to drive out to fyshwick just for oysters. I know that the guys at prestige oysters use to work at oyster haven so they have experience and knowledge of oysters and fish but i think shane the owner of oyster haven is angry at the fact they left and open there own shop. Shouldn’t be any competition one based on the north side and one on the south…

Wake me up when we get there.

Prestige Oysters in Kippax along Hardwick Crescent sells the freshest seafood and oysters around. I bought all my seafood from them for christmas and easter and it has to be the freshest seafood i had. The fish comes from the Sydney Fish Market twice a week and the oysters also comes twice a week direct from the farm growers from south coast and south australia-coffin bay so the fish and oysters are quality fresh! Love my SEAFOOD!!

Dont know why people buy fish, I mean all you need is your G Loomis rod ($500), a Stella reel ($900), some braid ($60), bunch of jigheads and SPs, a boat ($15k), a 4WD to tow it, some petrol for the engine, a knife, a tackle box, some special polarised sunnies ($200), a cool shimano fish shirt and a few spare weekends and you are laughing – guaranteed at least 2 or 3 (give or take) totally fresh flatheads.

Sure you can catch stuff with a woolies combo and a prawn, but you dont look good doing it.

Hahaha! Gotta love some healthy competition! A new store opens in Weston and all of a sudden we hear about how good a place is in Kippax is – even in another ‘oyster’ thread revived from 6 months ago! 🙂

On a side note, wasn’t the place at Belco markets supposed to be the ‘freshest’ when it opened? I seem to remember it was (originally?) stocked ~daily?

Let us know how they went, bazz.

The Flathead was beauuuudifuuul 🙂

walked past there about 4.30 in the arvo the other day and their display shelves seemed almost empty and at least 2 customers waiting in the little buying area..

If I had scented the smell of freshly cooked fish n chips I reckon I would have been lining up in there too.

At 2pm today I bought some nice looking Flathead fillets to have tonight and the shop was almost entirely sold out. Very good to see a local business doing well and I hope it continues!

The Erindale fish shop is closed. Quite happy actually as the smell was pretty bad. Then again I never saw anyone in the shop either.

Might give it a try I guess.

And it’s no big deal to expect our fish here to be fresh, we are a couple hours from the coast.
Like others said it comes from Sydney and is days old and gross.
Fish shops shouldn’t smell like they do here.

“Fresh fish” as-in: “Not cooked”? – I understand they’re planning on getting cooking equipment in, but for now it’s the raw product only. I’d be surprised if they weren’t getting the main body of it in directly from the South Coast (Lower volume items might come frozen from Sydney).
It’s tucked-in the corner behind the smoking ruin of AD’s (In the same row as Maestral, but several shops to the left). I haven’t set foot in the place yet, but my agent has given them a brief interview.

Had my ling fillets. Very fresh, I am surprised and impressed.

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.
