The Hobart waterfront is packed with many fish and chipperies; floating take-away outlets, sit down and take away restaurants and some more formal seafood dining.
Today I visited Fish Frenzy which is a small restaurant offering a wide menu and is licensed. The menu offers takeaway packs and more substantial main style dishes that can be enjoyed with a nice glass of wine or a beer.
So in keeping with the name of this place I ordered the namesake 'fish frenzy' pack.
It came served in a large paper cone: golden crispy chips, lightly crumbed blue eye trevalla, fresh scallops and calamari.
Everything was cooked really well, with one disappointing preparation mistake, being the calamari still had that annoying membrane attached. Aside from that, the home made tartare sauce was a great addition and unlike some fish and chip outlets, there was no pool of oil left at the end of the plate.
It unfair to criticise a fish and chip shop for the quality of their produce and in the Hobart area most have some of the freshest available. So it comes down to those little differences: quick and friendly service of a great range of products - that is what I saw served at Fish Frenzy and will be back soon to try some of their other options!
