Australia’s best fish and chips revealed for 2019

Australia’s best fish and chips restaurant for 2019 has been revealed.

Almost 40,000 chippy lovers cast their vote for their favourite fish and chip establishment, with Tobin Fish Tales in Townsville taking out the ultimate prize of People’s Choice at the Australian Fish and Chips Awards.

Despite being a more “boutique” fish and chip eatery, Tobin Fish Tales impressed the judges in every department.

Not only were their fish seen as cooked “to perfection”, the chips were crunchy and well seasoned.

The judges were impressed by owners Andrew and Renae's approach to sustainability and sharing knowledge of the fishing industry.

The judges were impressed by owners Andrew and Renae’s approach to sustainability and commitment to the fishing industry.

All their produce was local, with some of it even caught by the owners themselves.

The judges also noted that “the staff are attentive and knowledgeable and provide a wealth of information to customers about the seafood they sell”.

“The fish tasted fresh and the cooking method did not overpower the actual taste of the fish,” said another judge.

Owners Andrew and Renae have PhDs in fisheries, with Andrew boasting 20 years in commercial fishing.

All their seafood products are sustainably sourced and processed in store, which is another factor that helped them take out the coveted title.

Peter Horvat, General Manager Communications of Trade and Marketing said “one of the driving forces behind running the Fish and Chip Awards is helping educate consumers about seafood, the industry who supply it and to help other fish and chippers improve what they do.

In total, over 2,000 chippies entered this year’s awards which are now in their third year.

That translates to almost half of all fish and chip eateries in Australia.
