Went to Chocolate Fish on Shelly Bay today... an idyllic spot - the weather.... as usual for Wellington a freezing southerly.
The interesting thing about Chocolate Fish - is the menu..... lots of yummy seafood sandwiches.
The had the crayfish sandwich (sort of like a white-bait fritter - but with crayfish)... and greedily also had a paua fritter.
The sandwiches... come with white bread.... a little wedge of lemon... and a simple green salad and aioli. The salad was lovely and fresh.... and not mixed leaf... so to my mind elegant....
All I can say is YUM!!! its so nice to get to a place that has interesting food.. New Zealand food.
A lovely spot.... and it was quite busy.... which is a good sign... even though it was icy cold outside.
Also as a PS... to my previous article on the lack of Good Food at Taupo... http://www.foodheroes.co.nz/no-trout-at-taupo.html
.... what could be more simple than a sandwich with fresh steamed trout.... a dill sauce.... with a rocket and Parmesan salad....
