The new relaxed style seafood restaurant, Fish Shop opened earlier this year. Of course, we had to stop by and check out the venue while chatting to the team who already has a strong backing of regulars.
The restaurant ticked all of the boxes for us and we quite easily see ourselves sitting there for a casual bite to eat enjoying seafood snacks every afternoon of the week. Let’s not forget to mention the selection of natural wines.
Joel Bennetts’ heads up the kitchen and on the menu, he’s taken your classic fish & chip shop dishes and elevated them to become a Bondi icon. They’re relaxed, healthy and approachable, the sort of dishes you can see yourself eating every night.
For us, it was the Fish Burger, the tender calamari and the refreshing Tuna Tartare which had us salivating.
Thankfully Joel was open to sharing his tartare secrets for us to have a go at mastering ourselves. When it comes to preparing raw seafood at home I suspect that a lot of us can be a little dubious about it. There’s something unnerving about serving yourself uncooked seafood that most of us stay well away from. Naturally leaving it to the experts behind our favourite restaurants.
It really shouldn’t be that scary as long as your fish is extremely fresh, especially that from the days catch. Plus, it’s a dish you’ll guarantee to impress your guests with the next time you’re entertaining.
