$10 lunch reviews ride forth once more to cover the Fish Shack which has taken over the space previously occupied by the much missed Phat Duck on Petrie Plaza.
They’ve got an extensive seafood menu, but in the sub $10 category it’s the medium fish and chips (with choice of fish, batter, and dipping sauce), or fish burgers.
For $8.50 I got beer battered barramundi with a lime aioli.
As you’d expect with any new takeaway, they haven’t quite got their moves into muscle memory yet, it took about 15 minutes to get my fish and chips but I expect in a couple of weeks they’ll be faster still.
The wait, however, was well and truly worth it.
It was some of the lightest and fluffiest battered fish and chips I’ve ever had. The chips were good, and I got three wedges of lemon.
If you’re hankering for seafood they’re well worth checking out.
(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)
