Fish and chips teamed with a generous squirt of Wattie's Tomato Sauce is a key part of Kiwi culture.
In New Zealand we hear "takeaways," we think "fish and chips." And any Kiwi will agree the best place to tuck into our takeaways is on the beach.
Luckily in Taranaki there are plenty of fish and chip shops dotted along the coast within easy distance of premium black sand beachfront.
Here are few local faves along (and around) Taranaki's Surf Highway 45:
