I don’t have many recommendations for Sydney, we ate a lot of good food but a lot of it was grab and go food, there was lots of getting food we could go and sit and eat outside… there are just too many good settings.

We were also trying to save some cash… Sydney is expensive and the exchange rate was killing us at this point!

One spot I do have to tell you about is Chish and Fips in Coogee, I loved this place and the food was amazing.

It’s on the grassy area overlooking Coogee Beach…


They do awesome coffee too, from this Italian car like machine.

For a little hut the menu was amazing, so much choice for fish and salads and dressings… 

I mean how many local fish and chips shops here have salads like these…

We went with a fish fillet burger – no batter. It was so good, I had all but forgotten it though and this is a great idea for a weekend lunch or quick dinner.

A wholemeal bun filled with salad and a yogurt sauce and freshly grilled fish all by the beach. Delicious.

Sydney Fish Market

June 19, 2012

One place we HAD to visit when we visited Sydney was the Fish Market. My Husband lived nearby for a while when he was younger and shopped there a lot. I am so jealous of this place, the range of the fish and seafood was insane, and you know its fresh too… the boats are right there.

We just went for a mooch and to grab some lunch.

It was a cloudy day.

I loved this store front, so cute.

Inside the market there are a variety of restaurants and stores, all selling the freshest fish straight from the boats.

Peters was one of the biggest shops and had a massive range of fish and seafood to take home as well as a fish and chip counter at the back…

Huge lobsters!

At the back is this huge outdoor seating area where if you’re quick you might be able o eat your food before the seagulls close in… you are absolutely not allowed to feed them here.

We were unfortunately not massively hungry and fully planned on coming back to eat a huge seafood platter one night but we didn’t manage it.

The calamari was great though, I dread to think over the course of our trip how much of this we are… it seemed to be a thing in every country we visited!

These massive pelicans (?) scared me a little, those beaks were huge!
