Is there anything more iconic Western Australian than fish and chips on the beach with the sun setting right before your eyes? But whether you’re dining on this classic fried combo with wind in your hair, in the comfort of your home or in the venue itself, it always is a crowd-pleaser. Don’t bother fishing around for the best, we have some of Perth’s finest right here for you.
Brighton Fish Supply
Arguably one of the absolute best fish and chip joints in WA, the humble little Brighton Fish Supply definitely has won the heart of locals.
After moving from Scarborough to Innaloo, they’ve managed to maintain an excellent offering that is very corner store traditional, with the waft of salt, vinegar and hot chips filling the air in and outside the shop. Notable shoutouts for their crisp batter on the fish and the crabsticks which yes, are a contentious order, but we’re into them in a big way.
Grand Lane Fish House
You’d never expect a Perth CBD fish and chip to be solidly impressive, but that’s where Grand Lane Fish House proves you wrong.
It has a proper British fish and chip vibe, with excellent produce cooked in a traditional way that makes the ingredients sing. Hand cut twice cooked Maris Piper potato chips come standard, but there’s also some interesting twists like garlic mayo and cheese, taco sauce with cheese or curry.
And for those so inclined, they also have fried haggis on the menu, prepared by a local Scottish butcher just for the shop.
Tankk Gourmet Fish & Chips
Voted Perth’s best fish and chips in 2019, family owned and operated Tankk Gourmet Fish & Chips has expanded to three locations in Melville, Winthrop and Como thanks to the success they’ve seen.
The food is seriously good, with the fish fans out there being able to choose from value range, traditional and premium depending on how much you’d like to spend or if you have a certain fish you particularly love.
Try their stuff Shark Bay prawns which are a complete and utter game-changer with cream cheese and bacon inside before battered and fried. YUM.
Kailis Fishmarket Cafe
Fremantle’s longstanding venue Kailis Fishmarket Café has been on the scene so long (1926!) that it’s part of the scenery these days.
But after all this time, they still deliver on their reputation for cracking fish and chips. And they easily have one of the best views too to enjoy as the waves of water lap around you. Beyond the norm fried menu, they also have an excellent raw bar and bbq offering too so there’s something for everyone. From poke, to Moreton Bay bugs, to pickled marinated octopus.
Yes, this place is for the seafood lovers.
Clancy’s Fish Pub
Canningbridge, City Beach, Fremantle and Dunsborough.
There’s no denying it, Clancy’s Fish Pub are on to a winning formula which has fish and chips at the heart of what they do. With live music, great drinks and tasty seafood, these venues are accessible, family-friendly and fun.
Their fish and chips can be enjoyed dine in, or grab them take away and head beachside for some salty air with your salty meal.
Situated in Cottesloe and Elizabeth Quay, there’s no denying that dining on or at Amberjacks comes with some serious scenery eye candy to enjoy with your food.
Big ups to any fish and chip joint that takes it a step further and puts wedges with sour cream and sweet chilli sauce on their menu – but for the purist out there, rest assured the chips are all wonderful.
Get your fix and add on a delightful pineapple fritter or dim sim – it would be rude not to.
Yes, it might be cliché to say it but these guys handle fish and chips like a boss.
East Victoria Park’s Fish Boss are tackling the seafood game in a whole new way. Big contemporary vibes with their fish tacos and burgers, but the classics are also top notch.
Crispy, crunchy delights are calling your name.
Mount Hawthorn Fish and Chips
Some may say you don’t make friends with salad, but Mount Hawthorn Fish and Chips might change your mind with their grilled fish and salad alternative to the classic fried offering.
Don’t get us wrong, we love the normal battered goodness, but its nice to have a lighter version for days when we’re actually caring about our summer bodies. Well known for their $10 price tag for fish and chips, they’re also the location of deep-fried oreos for dessert too.
Your arteries might object, but your tastebuds won’t.
Scarborough’s new fishmonger meets fish and chip joint, Stone Jetty has a real boutique feel with a focus on highlighting Western Australian produce.
It’s definitely not your traditional style venue but that’s what makes it so great. The owners previously lived the life of commercial fishermen, so they know their seafood and have a real eye for quality. Stop by for lunch Tuesday to Sunday and try their gourmet approach to fish and chips, while being just a hop, skip and jump away from the beautiful Scarborough beach and boardwalk.
It’s safe to say, this is going to be a very popular addition to the burbs.
