Where's the Best Fish and Chips in Adelaide?

South Australia has great fish and we even grow some quality spuds down the South East, but where are the best fish and chips in Adelaide? And even more controversial, what makes a good chip? Thick or thin, soggy or crisp? Does size matter?

Can you tell if it's cut fresh from the potato or if its been bought frozen and precut. Furthermore, do we need our fish to pretty on the plate or are we happy with them stuffed in newspaper or more commonly these days, a box?

Here are a few I've tried and a few I've heard others rave about.

For the best name for a fish and chip shop "The Stunned Mullet" at Henley Beach wins with me. This place gets accolades for its low salt crispy fish and chips, with chunky finger style chips.

Line Bait Fish Café in O'Connell Street serves light fleshy fish and long thin chips, but what sets it all off it the fresh aioli. It is served with a salad in an aesthetically pleasing gourmet way.

Manny's Fish Café on Norwood Parade serves really fresh South Australia fish, but the chips are nothing special.

For something more traditional try Sotos Fish n Chips on Semaphore Road (who hand make their chips) and Seaview Chicken & Fish, Seacliff Park.

The best chips I've ever tasted are fatty, spicy, chunky and come from Chicken Chef on the Main North Road at Enfield (technically a chicken shop but their chips are amazing).

Over to you.

FOOW (fish out of water) is my absolute favourite fish and chips shop. Fantastic range of fish, and all cooked to perfection. I've never had a bad meal from them. Their chips are crisp, and salted perfectly. I also recommend getting a viscous burger with the fish fillet! Delish!

Stunned Mullet at Henley Beach (8 East Terrace) - it hasn't won the WIN "Best Fish & Chips" Metro award for the last two years for nothing...

Halas on Findon or Grange Rd (can't quite remember which one) - the chips are ever so crunchy and delicious!
