Fresh off the boat - Chip 'N' Fish, Darwin

Chip 'n Fish Bar on Urbanspoon
Kalbarri Shopping Centre,
69 Mitchell St ,
Darwin City, NT 0800

This Fish and Chip shop in the foodie district around Mitchell Street in central Darwin is a tiny 'hole in the wall' food outlet that prides itself on serving fresh seafood caught locally. There was an initial mix-up with the order as the cashier did not seem to understand what was being asked for, and the order had to be re-done, but things looked up from there.

The Seafood Basket ($16) contained some pieces of shark, two prawns, one scallop, one seafood stick, three calamari rings and a small serve of chips. All the seafood was cooked in a light and fluffy golden batter and was moist and flavoursome. The chips were a bit disappointing in terms of being slightly over-cooked and the size of the serve. However, the proprietors cannot be faulted in terms of cheerfully correcting the order and the quality of the food.

Verdict: Recommended.
