Fish & Chips by the Harbour - Fremantle

Take a wander up the hill, down by Bather's beach and you'll come across the lovely harbour.

...or look out for the big wheel and you're in the right spot.

When I think fish and chips, I think English seaside town, sat in a coat, shivering with a carefully wrapped newspaper parcel of fish, chips and mushy peas (drowned in vinegar). But this was something else - Fremantle Harbour is beautiful. We had a little walk round at the beginning of our trip...

After climbing up onto the rocks I managed to look out, past the lighthouse, at the beautiful sky.

I've seen some of the most beautiful sunsets since I've been away - this was probably one of the best.

We then headed down here...

...to sample the infamous fish of Perth. I must say, it's reputation proceeds it. Possibly some of the nicest fish I've had (only beaten by the fish and chips in the Jumeriah Beach Hotel in Dubai)

The whole system is very informal; you head inside, queue up in a canteen like area, place your order and get your 'buzzer' to tell you when your order is ready. 

We grabbed a seat outside, overlooking the water, and chatted away...

Buzz, buzz...

Two pieces of slightly crisp, battered fish, fresh chips and tartare sauce, all wrapped in paper with two wedges of lemon. It may look like your average fish and chips, but trust me, it was waaaay better! The batter was not even slightly greasy or heavy like some of the fish you get in the UK and the chips; perfectly cooked. After fully devouring our delicious food, we hopped back in the car and headed to Gino's for a quick coffee before our drive to the airport.

We left, very happy and very full customers.

What a lovely evening.
