Thursday December 24, 2015


Nothing says summer like a piece of fish and a scoop of chips. But who does it best? The team at Wellington Suburban Newspapers have compiled a list of some of the capital’s best fish and chip shops.

Fish Fins

Fish Fins is world famous across Wellington. The store owned and operated by husband and wife Salvi and Lilly Volpicelli is known for its delectable fresh fish. On their extensive fish and chip menu, they sell a variety of fresh fish. Part of the store’s charm is down to the friendly service of Lilly and Salvi, who both always have a smile on their face. 170 Riddiford Street, Newtown

Johnsonville Fish Supply

Johnsonville Fish Supply on Johnsonville Rd is the perfect place to go for a fresh fish and a scoop of hand cut chips. Anyone who is in the mood for something a little different should give the steak roll a whirl – it is considered one of the best in the capital. 11 Johnsonville Rd, Johnsonville


Ask anyone who lines up for the Churton Park shop’s food and they will tell you to order a burger. With a regular burger menu and a gourmet menu there are options to suit anyone. On Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday they also have a dedicated gluten-free vat, where they cook only gluten free products, which means no one has to miss out. 101a Westchester Drive, Churton Park

Bays Takeaways

The popular fish and chip shop can be found in Island Bay’s main shopping village. In fact the fish and chip shop, which also boasts a delicious variety of Chinese meals and burgers, is so popular there are often queues out the door. However, it is safe to say, the food is definitely worth the wait. Anyone who loves a burger should be sure to check out the shop’s menu. The homemade meat patties are delicious. The home cut chips are even better. 138 The Parade, Island Bay

Mt Vic Chippery

The city central shop in Mount Victoria is just one of an everincreasing number of gourmet fish and chip shops popping up around the city. Gone are the days where you can order just one type of fish or chips. Now you can select the type of fish and whether you would like it crumbed, battered or grilled. You can even order from a variety of different cuts of chips. Perhaps you feel like curly fries? Or maybe kumara fries? Sky’s the limit. 3 Majoribanks St, Mount Victoria
