This is it. This is my favourite fish and chip takeaway shop.
And I'm not the only one who thinks so. Ocean Foods recently won the prestigious Best Fish And Chips In Sydney award (Seafood Excellence Awards).
Battered fish and chips are one of those meals that are better bought than homemade, that is, unless you have one of those commercial type fryers at home. I've learnt that for best results, a double fry is recommended. This is something Ocean Foods has perfected. Their batter is consistently crisp and clean. I've become a fan of their battered mussels, fish and pineapple fritters. The chips are pretty average here (the usual thick frozen type) but the homemade potato scallops are solid gold.
Selection of fresh seafood
Also on offer are gourmet, in terms of price and flavour, salads and a huge display of ready to cook seafood. Barramundi in a myriad of flavours, kebab skewers, salt and pepper calamari, lobster mornay, BBQ seafoods, sushi, sashimi... and the list goes on.

I'm a regular here and have been for several years. While the prices have slowly risen, the quality remains top notch. When you visit, keep in mind they don't take card transactions. So come early to avoid the chaos and grab a seat at their newly built seating area or take it to the park down the street. Just be prepared to wait if you're late :)
