Wellington's best fish and chips
Fish and chips; they're a Kiwi classic! We've got some insider tips on favourite fish and chip shops that put on an impressively good feed
Huckle & Co.
31 Dundas Street, Seatoun, Wellington
Great location, a cool fit-out and exceptional fish and chips equals happy customers! Huckle & Co. in Seatoun do this very well. We also heard the squid rings are "the best in the world", you might just have to try them out for yourself.
The Mt. Vic Chippery
5 Majoribanks Street, Mount Victoria, Wellington
The Mt. Vic Chippery (big brother to The Thorndon Chippery) uses top quality ingredients, make almost everything from scratch and get their fish, craft beer for their batter and agria potatoes for their hand-cut chips from local sources.
Those who can't or don't eat gluten will be delighted to hear that they offer a wide selection of gluten-free options including gluten-free batter and they have a dedicated gluten-free fryer. Plus there's plenty of vegan and vegetarian options.
220 Cuba Street, Te Aro, Wellington
Wellington Seamarket on Cuba Street is pretty popular with Wellingtonians. Perhaps it's the fact you can buy from a range of fresh fish caught that morning, or it could be the generous serving of crunchy chips.
92 Lyall Parade, Lyall Bay, Wellington
Seaview Takeaways in Lyall Bay always has a good stream people going into it (a clear indication that this place must be good).
You really get your money's worth here. $6 for fish and chips for one will do just fine - and some, plus you can eat them on the beach!
10 Murphy Street, Thorndon, Wellington
The Thorndon Chippery, little brother of The Mt. Vic Chippery, serves the same delicious menu of fresh fish and hand-cut chips (plus burgers, salads and plenty of other seafood varieties).
They've drawn quite the crowd on Murphy Street, and you really can't miss it. The giant fish sculpture above the doors is a dead give away. If you can't wait during peak time, they take online orders too. Nice!
