Riverside Seafood Cafe (Graceville, QLD)

Having marked this place on my Wishlist, I didn't think I'd actually make it out this far food.  But, being located right next to Miette's Boulangerie gave me an excuse to actually travel out to try out these allegedly delicious places in suburbia.

I've had several fish 'n' chips places around Brisbane, including The Salt & Battery in St. Lucia, as well as Fish Market in Dutton Park.  So far, I think that Riverside does the best job frying up their fish 'n' chips, but Fish Market does make the plate more colorful with a mini salad on the side.  Riverside does a lunch special of the cod fish with hot chips and a canned drink for $10, and it's loaded with hot chips to fill you up!  I couldn't finish them...

The batter for the cod had an amazing mouthfeel, as it wasn't over-fried or soggy, and the fish was definitely fresh.  I didn't try any other fishes, so I can't vouch for them, but the calamari seems to be quite popular.  The sauces (tartare, etc.) are an extra $1.5-2.0, but totally worth it!  My tartare sauce was perfect.

They were friendly and pretty attentive, so that's always a plus.  This isn't a place to go for ambience, but it is definitely a go-to if you're a fan of seafood!  The only downside is that going by public transportation takes quite a while...
