New fish and chipper in Carss Park
I had a hankering for fish and chips recently and not just any old greasy soggy battered flake and limp chips. The Fishbox & Co had been on my radar for a while and finally, I had an opportunity to check the out, and I'm sorry I didn't go sooner. Fish and chips seem like simple fare but it is difficult to get right. You must start with quality fresh (and that means locally sourced) fish - not basa fillets from south-east Asia - and I prefer grilled, but if you are going for battered, the batter must be not too thick, and fried in fresh oil.

The most important component for me, however, are the chips. And this is where The Fishbox & Co are clear winners. They were freshly fried and crisp from the first chip to the last. Piping hot and crisp with a pillowy interior, they are a different shape than most fries (wide and thin, oblong shapes).

I had the grilled barramundi, salad and chips, which was cooked beautifully. Other fish choices include Gummy flake from Victoria, Atlantic Salmon from Tasmania and New Zealand snapper. Only afterwards did I notice the display cabinet full of delicious-sounding sauces - a dollop of tartare sauce or aioli would have gone wonderfully with my meal. We also had a lobster po'boy, which was delicious.

Other items on the menu which sounded amazing were the Southern Fried Chicken, described as crispy and tender buttermilk-coated fried chicken, and Cheeseburgers with Angus beef. Gluten-free bread is available as an option for the po'boys and burgers.

That crispy skin on the fillet looks so enticing.

The garlic prawns with basmati rice was enough to make me order a 2nd one take away for mum today.
