I secretly love to indulge in golden fried foods. I simply adore the crunchy texture and the pleasant satisfaction it provides. Nothing can really beat a good and cheap fish & chip shop, particularly one that's also a floating fish monger.
Along Constitution Dock in Hobart, were several of these floating fish mongers / seafood takeaway shops. Mako Seafood were a tad cheaper than the others, they offered dine-in and I seemed to prefer their menu which offered little extras such as homemade chilli and coriander mayonnaise and gourmet salad greens.
We enjoyed 1/2 dozen of Bruny Island oysters for $6.90...
Crumbled scallops with homemade chilli and coriander mayonnaise and chips, $12.50
Grilled blue-eye trevalla, salad and chips, $13.50
The service was quick and friendly, the oysters were juicy and fresh and the scallops, with roe intact were perfectly coated in light breadcrumbs. They were pipping hot when served and lovely with the homemade sauce. Likewise, the trevalla was meaty and filling... need not to say, I was back the next day!
