Chish and Fips, Coogee

Easter came very late this year, better late than never right? The upside, we get a FIVE day long weekend. YAY! I heart long weekends and Easter is definitely one of my favourite holiday seasons – chocolates, hot cross buns – what’s not to like right?

‘The Mother’ and I thought we would go to Coogee, sit under the sun, read a book and eat. He had me at ‘eat’ and the rest was just a blur. He sure does know how to get me out of the house.  

I was craving for fish and chips – as you do when you are at the beach. Chish and Fips can be found in the middle of Coogee Beach, it’s a heritage tram shelter and it’s in the perfect spot for beach goers passing by. It seemed like everyone had the same idea as us that day.

We arrived just a little after midday and the place was busy! The menu is pretty basic – different types of fish and chips, calarami and chips and burgers.

The service is efficient and friendly. However, I was a little confused about the numbering system. It seems a little sporadic, which was annoying as we couldn’t figure out how long we had to wait. So after about 15 minutes, we finally got our order. There are undercover seating at Chish and Fips, however, the place was so busy that there were no spare tables available. It didn’t bother us too much, we wanted to sit in the park anyway. 

‘The Mother’ couldn’t go pass the fish of the day, John Dory with both chips and salad ($17.80). The batter was crispy and the fish fillet was firm and fresh. The chips were good but definitely have had better.

I just wanted the fish, the barramundi ($11) – again the batter was thin and crispy, the fish I thought was a little on the thin side, but it was pretty tasty.

We sat there relaxing…

It wasn’t exactly the warmest day, but there were a lot of brave souls swimming! 

I sat there reading, pity the sun wasn’t out but it was a glorious afternoon in Sydney.

I do love the name – Chish and Fips. I can see why it is quite popular, food is relatively decent, and price is fairly reasonable.

It was indeed a relaxing afternoon.

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter and a relaxing weekend.
