Fish and Chips is New Zealand's favourite snack and one which can be munched upon at any time of the day. 'Shark and Tatties' as the Kiwis call it, can be had as an alternative to a boring breakfast, as a mid-afternoon delight, or as something to satiate the unexpected evening hunger. Here are the names of a few outlets in Auckland whose Fish and Chips can be counted among the favourites..
Epsom Fish and Chips
Epsom is known throughout the city for its amazing service and of course its tasty fish and chips. There are plenty of options to choose from, like fish of the day, snapper, tarakihi, gurnard, hoki etc. for the fishes, and chips are flavoured with garlic, kumara chips or wedges. The menu also has an extensive variety of deep fries like oyster, scallop, hash brown, fritters etc. Tasty burgers and sandwiches of steak, ham, bacon, cheese etc. are other options to snack your mouth full.
Palm Beach Fish and Chips
Situated besides the Palm Beach, this Fish and Chips shop is the coolest place to grab a packet.
