The place to go for fresh seafood in the East
When you think of where to get fresh seafood in Melbourne, Queen Victoria Market might be the first place that pops into mind. But if like me, living in the Eastern suburbs you might find that a trip to and from the famous markets take too long and cost too much, especially if you were only after a dozen of oysters or a piece of fresh fish. In that case, Fish Pier Grill & Oyster Bar is exactly what you are looking for if you happen to be around Doncaster.

Fish Pier is located on the bottom level of Westfield Shopping Centre in Doncaster, neighboring Coles and Colonial Fresh Market it is one of the best places to go for fresh seafood in the East.

Although costs vary according to season and market price, the general prices are very reasonable and within the standard range. A dozen oysters are $14.99 while prices at Victoria Market may range from $13-$15, you avoid the time spent commuting, finding parking and the cost of parking when you shop local.

You will be excited to find that Fish Pier also offer an assortment of fried and cooked food, perfect for lunch after a days' worth of shopping. Their chips are freshly fried to order and comes in a small ($2) or large ($4) container. Fresh chips are always the best -crispy, crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside. Other fried goods include calamari rings, squid skewers, panko prawns, money bags, fish balls, dim sums and many more.

A must try is their Succulent Salmon Burger. Made with a delicious salmon patty made of fresh salmon pieces (none of that process stuff), fresh greens, and their delicious homemade mayonnaise. The burger is $6 but is frequently on special at only $4. A healthy option compared to burgers from fast food chains. Another must try is their seafood fried rice ($7.50).
