Every happy neighbourhood needs a good fish and chip spot to hangout at, so lucky for Plimmerton locals that exists in the form of Plimmerton Fish Supply. The coastal suburb is no stranger to beach time, sandy toes and a hot parcel of chips, and by the number of hungry visitors who make their way here in the evening time it’s easy to see this is a place worth its salt.
The mix of traditional Kiwi fish and chip aesthetic and the proud displays from Greece are thanks to the Greek family who run the show, and give the cheery welcome from behind the counter. (If you’ve never tried yogurt tzatziki with your chips before, now would be the time.) From fillets to fritters to burgers and all the good bits in between (hello jam-wrapped donut), Plimmerton Fish Supply take the best of the fresh when it comes to kaimoana and serves it up piping hot, crumbed, battered or between burger buns. A separate gluten-free menu is available too, so don’t go thinking you can’t enjoy the fare if you’re intolerant to wheat.
A hangout for kids, teens and adults, there’s no one who doesn’t appreciate a good fish and chips, so leave the city woes behind you, join the queue and be in for some crispy goodness from a spot that knows exactly how to get you coming back for more.
