Fish and chips is arguably the perfect takeway - but finding a great fish and chip shop is no easy task. For the perfect meal, you want the fish to be fresh, the batter to be light and crispy and the chips to be thick and crunchy, and perhaps you may finish your meal with a deep-fried dim sim, potato cake or deep-fried Mars bar.

There are many popular fish and chip shops in Brisbane, for example Chumley Warners, Doug's Seafood Cafe, The Groper and His Misses, A Salt & Battery, Marine World Seafood Cafe and Carraway Pier.

But we would like to hear from you. Please let us know where your favourite Brisbane fish and chip shop is located and your top menu items. It does not matter if it is a simple establishment or a trendy takeaway shop, we would still like to hear about it.

We look forward to your suggestions.

I think that depending on where in Brisbane you are, there is more than one answer to this question.

On the inner South side, Iíve always loved the Yeronga Seafood Cafe, located on Fairfield Road, Yeronga, and just about opposite Yeronga Train Station. I lived in Yeronga for nigh on three years and enjoyed weekly meals with my Mom, always ordering the fishermanís basket to share.

The seafood salad that they serve is out of this world and the calamari to die for. The serve both beer-battered and regular chips but I would wholeheartedly recommend spending the little bit extra for that beer battered goodness.

Where I am now, Iíve found that the Fish and Chip shop at Rode Village in Stafford Heights (Appleby Road, Stafford Heights) is hard to beat and because calamari is one of my favourite types of seafood, I must again recommend that you try it here as it is always very good. Melt in your mouth good.

Finally, on the inner North side, OíConnorís Traditional Irish Fish and Chips has been highly recommended. They are said to really care about the food they serve and the atmosphere offered. Currently they are in the process of launching a dine-in restaurant, next door to the existing premises.

Fish Biz in Scarborough make a great fish burger, you can order the fish you like then they will place it in the burger for you. They also place the good old fashioned beetroot in as it just adds to the great taste :)

I like my fish and chips by the sea,

Chumley Warmers at Birkdale are good too, (although it's been crowded and difficult to find a seat every time I've been there.)

I tried Fish 121 for the first time last week after my usual takeaway wouldn't answer. The Sea Perch was some of the best I've tasted in a long time. Fish 121 is my new favourite Fish and Hamburger takeaway.
