Despite there being a wide and fabulous range of different ethnic foods available, Fish and chips are still very popular in the city of churches. The best fish and chips in Adelaide is a hotly contested mantle. But there are several places that can justifiably lay claim to that title. Below is a small selection of some of the best of them. Collectively, their selection of fish suppers and styles of hot chips are first rate. So whoever you choose to visit, you’ll be in for a ripping feed.
When a business is awarded the title of ‘best fish and chips in South Australia’ for three years in a row then you know that is somewhere you just need to go to. Situated on King William Road, Fish Out of Water Hyde Park is a stalwart on the local dining scene. Offering perfectly cooked food that is made from the freshest of ingredients, this venue is always busy. But with very friendly customer service and affordable prices, that shouldn’t bother you in the least.
As soon as it was launched in 2005, The Stunned Mullet quickly became recognised for serving some of the best fish and chips in Adelaide. Owned and run by Dino and Amanda Papadopoulos, who has over 30 years of experience in the seafood industry, this fabulous Henley Beach eatery dishes up sumptuous seafood that is not only locally sourced but also sustainable too. Their range includes garfish, coral perch and barramundi, and if you fancy something a little different you could always have some samosas or a spring roll.
Over in Hilton, on Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Hilton Seafood & Yiros ticks all the boxes of good food, affordable prices and friendly and efficient service. A popular very place, you might have to queue to get your food sometimes. But the venue is clean and the portion size is generous so that more than makes up for it. As the name alludes, the Yiros here is one of their specialities. Always perfectly cooked, just like their fish, this is an excellent place to come for a comfort feed.
Offering a wonderful range of fresh seafood, as well as burgers and yiros, Sammy’s Fish & Chippery is an institution in Collinswood. Known for its awesome ‘deals for two’ menu, which makes it the perfect place for a casual date lunch, this eatery is located within the Collinswood Shopping Centre. The menu is wide ranging and caters to all tastes, while the service is quick and friendly. If you can’t make it to the shop they also deliver to a number of the surrounding suburbs, which is a real bonus.
Even though other establishments might have got the plaudits in recent years, many locals still regard Sotos Fish Shop as the best fish and chips in Adelaide. Located in the district of Semaphore, this fantastic venue has really stood the test of time. Dishing up outstanding feeds to hungry customers for almost 75 years, they are renowned for making fish and chips the old fashioned way. This means they don’t cook frozen chips. Rather they freshly peeled and cut their potatoes onsite every day.
