I am a freelance writer living in Manly. I enjoy writing reviews for Weekend Notes.
I enjoy the outdoors and anything to do with the water. My interests are travel, Live Theatre,The Ballet and Restaurants that serve delicious innovative food.

Nutritious and delicious
Fishbowl is in various locations throughout Sydney. The one I am writing about today is in Darley Rd, Manly. Others are at Bondi Beach, Darlinghurst, Surry Hills & The Galleries George St Sydney,
Food is a big thing in my life, I guess you could call me a foodie. Manly has an array of health cafes. Many are vegetarian with a twist, they offer fish, chicken or a meat dish to go with your meal if desired.
Fishbowl Salads are a little different in that they have an Asian influence and are partly a sashimi bar. You can have tuna or salmon with your salad cooked or raw. The salmon is ASC certified sustainable farming. The tuna is wild caught the highest quality sustainable fishing. There are many choices that are not sashimi.
MAKE IT LUX
Add avocado, seaweed salad, seared salmon, Japanese chilli flakes, wasabi mayo drizzle, and crispy shallots.
There are also some delicious dressings to choose from.
There is a roasted sesame dressing, miso tahini dressing among others. A favourite of mine is olive oil and lemon, especially when served with seafood.
I find Fishbowl salads so easy, convenient and economical that I often go there for lunch. Take away is another good option. If you are having friends over for lunch at short notice, this would be perfect. It is something everyone will appreciate if they like healthy food.
You can order online - just go to the website.
The owner is Nic Pestalozzi, the young blonde man in the middle of the group.
In the winter months, there is a warm fishbowl on offer. Miso soup with chicken and noodles. The warm fishbowl has an unusual element to it. The hot and cold food are mixed together and served with a broth. This is different, however, works really well. You can also have miso soup on its own.
There is seating downstairs and also a more private area upstairs. This is good if you want to read or be alone.
Remember Manly Beach or Manly Wharf are only a stone's throw away, so get a takeaway and enjoy a picnic by the water on a sunny day. Or get a take away to have while enjoying your trip on the Manly Ferry.
My favourite Fisbowl Salad is the Fresh Prawn Salad. I choose to have this dish yesterday for lunch with carrots, coriander, golden beetroot, shallots and flavoured with ginger and fish roe. Over this, I had the olive oil and lemon dressing. Nutritious and delicious, this is one to try.
