The Salt & Battery Fish and Chips (St. Lucia, QLD)

Rumor has it this place in St. Lucia serves up pretty good fish 'n' chips for a decent price, so I decided it was about time to try this place out.  A casual sit-in restaurant with outdoor seating along Hawken Drive, Salt & Battery seems to be one of the busier food stops in the area.

I had the battered cod (my usual) 'Plate For One', which comes with a salad and hot chips, which I changed to sweet potato chips/fries.  The cod was a tad bit fishy, but I really liked the sweet potato fries, which I don't often see around Brisbane, so it was pretty exciting.  They offer a variety of salads, and I got the caesar salad, which was...interesting.  It had eggs in it!  The dressing also wasn't caesar dressing, but it was still alright.  The 'Plate For One' was $14.5 with the switch to sweet potato fries, and sauces are $1 extra - so it wasn't actually as cheap as I had expected.  The service was good, and the location is really convenient for UQ students, but I think I'd still rather grab fish 'n' chips at Fish Market in Dutton Park.

  1. hey tammy, you should definitely check this place out if you have the chance to. it's my absolute favourite fish and chips place in Brisbane.

    Easy ferry ride to Brett's Wharf and a short walk over.
