Seafood life in Paddington
‘Sustainably caught, under utilised species, expertly prepared for you to cook at home.’
Oyster lovers take note. Oysters are available for takeaway but hopefully their plans for seating will mean a quick dine in option as well. They can pop the shells for takeaway but you'll need to fully open them yourself due to health regulations. Organic Wapengo Sydney Rock Oysters ($4 each) are a good choice.
Bermagui Pink Ling, Chips & Yoghurt Tartare Sauce ($20) is a very generous portion of two pieces of well cooked fish with ultra thin and crispy batter and tasty crispy hand cut chips with real flavour. Goes well with the yummy tartare sauce. I'd recommend sharing between two unless you're a big eater. They were still sorting out takeaway cutlery when I visited so have some handy if needed. I probably didn't need the Potato Scallop ($3) but it's always a nice fryday treat if you're sharing your chips.
As a special and tempting treat the Hand picked Ballina Spanner Crab ($22, 100g) caught my eye on display. Nice clean pieces of yummy crab meat presented in a clean shell. Would go well with a squeeze of lemon and some cocktail sauce that isn't included. If dining at Saint Peter, Paddington it's usually served with a Coral Sauce. For somewhere close to sit head across the road for some casual seating outside around the church.
