In today's post, I would like to tell you about where I go to satisfy my burger cravings. No it's not Chur Burger (although they make a pretty mean cheeseburger) and it is certainly not Maccas. It's a place that you may not suspect...
The Fish Shop is part of the Merivale group and is another one of their themed venues. The decor is somewhat tacky and resembles a beach side fish and chips store (even the bathrooms are labelled as buoys and gulls!). They serve all sorts of fresh seafood and have a hatted chef in Jeremy Strode behind the stoves, but I am here for their burgers, which seems a bit wrong. Don't worry I had their burgers on separate occasions, not all in one seating!

The burger also comes with a decent side of hot chips.

There is only a small and simple offering of desserts at Fish Shop. I have tried all of them except the pineapple sorbet and grilled pineapple. Here's what I thought of the other desserts.
|Ice cream sandwich & salted caramel ($9.50)|
|Fried banana split & palm sugar sauce ($9.50)|
I have not tried any of the "proper" seafood options on the menu yet because I am always drawn to the burgers. The cheese and fish burgers at Fish Shop are two of the better burger options in Sydney in my opinion. They may cost a bit more than your average burger, but what you will get is a flavoursome burger with quality ingredients that are not crammed with an excessive amount of ingredients. If anyone is in need of desserts, you might want to consider other options nearby as desserts are not really what Fish Shop is about.
