Having shell-ebrated their launch just a couple of weeks ago, Drunken Sailor in North Adelaide has tied the knot to The Curious Squire and has taken a small space next to the iconic pub and restaurant by setting up their own fish and chips store.

Promising a whale of a good time, the space boasts of a minimalist and nautical theme that is decorated with a mural of the man himself, along with diner-style seating that's available to customers, of which there can be up to 20 housed at one time.

Taking pride in being so much "more than your average fish and chips shop", Drunken Sailor is a food joint that can either be enjoyed as a dine-in or takeaway site, particularly if you are on a time crunch.

While the sea may not be anywhere nearby, you can be assured that head chef Hien Nguyen will be serving up some of the finest kettle of Australian fish, such as South Australian Flathead, Tasmanian Salmon, and Northern Territory Barramundi. These fishy dishes can be served traditionally (battered or fried) or by cooking them in the wood oven, which gives it a subtle smoky flavour.

Looking to drown your sorrows from a tough day at work? Or maybe you want to catch up with your mates over a couple of brews - whatever your reason, Drunken Sailor is a fully licensed venue that offers boozy goodness in the form of Boats n Schmoes Session Ale and Seas The Day Sauvignon Blanc, both of which are exclusively available here only.

What makes this fish and chips shop stand above average is that it also offers customers with the opportunity to enjoy a fusion of beautiful Asian flavours, which were experienced through their dishes such as the lobster roll, the prawn pao buns, and the Vietnamese salmon salad bowl.

It also specialises in offering a point of difference through their competitive prices, with dishes ranging from $1 - $26, so you don't need to go breaking the bank! All that spare change in your piggy bank will be put to good use and you can get some seriously delicious grub out of it too!

May the wind be at your back, fellow sailors and captains of the sea! You'll be shore to be blessed with a feast fit for the water gods, so make sure you stop by and reap the benefits while you can!

With special thanks to Girl About Town for organising the event.
