Thin and crispy batter
It's so refreshing to come across a fish n chip shop which does a nice thin and crispy batter which isn't too oily — Ocean Heart Seafood seems to have got it right. I order the Small Fisherman's Basket so I can try a few things. From the first bite of the seafood stick I was impressed with the thinness of the batter. The prawn cutlets were battered rather than the usual crumbing — it was good to see there was more prawn than batter on these. The crumbed calamari rings were also pretty large and tender with a tasty coating. The flavoursome BBQ Octopus was marinated in plenty of garlic amongst other things — thankfully not too rubbery as well. The small greek salad was quite small especially when the pieces of salad are cut quite large but it's good to see they managed to put a bit of everything in it. I noticed on the awards wall that they don't use animal fat which sounds like a good thing for the waistline.
