Type of food: Fish and chips
Fish On Fire was one of my favourite places to eat during my stay in wonderful Glebe. It reminded me of a good old British fish ‘n’ chip shop with a few tables to eat in and a couple of tables outside – nothing too fancy or formal.
The choice of food was good, with a selection of battered and grilled seafood and burgers. There were few vegetarian options on the menu (veggie burger and Greek salad spring to mind) so needless to say, Fish On Fire is not the ideal place for your veggie friends.
The food was freshly cooked to order and pretty good. In particular, I loved the mixed seafood grill, chips and salad – the grill included octopus, calamari, mussels, king prawns and perch. The beer battered chips were amongst the best I have tasted. Yum! And the cost? Less than $15 at the time of writing. Sydney is an expensive city but I can say that I would struggle to find anything similar for this price in many UK cities (exchange rate permitting of course…). Salt and pepper squid was another favourite of mine.
I also had the barramundi burger – being in Australia, I had to have the ‘national’ fish! – and thoroughly enjoyed it. The fish was grilled rather than battered which meant it wasn’t too heavy.
If you happen to be in Glebe and fancy a well priced and tasty fish supper, pop into Fish On Fire for an informal meal. Or takeaway. Oh those chips…!
