After spending a lovely morning hanging out on Coogee Beach, we walked to JP McCaffrey’s Traditional Fish & Chips to satisfy our craving for seafood. Upon entering, we felt as if we’d just walked into a local Dublin fish and chip shop.
The menu includes a variety of fish and chips, burgers, specials and sides to take away or eat in. We didn’t know where to start!
I particularly loved the drinks on offer, as they were Irish and British canned drinks that I’ve never seen before in our local supermarket such as Club Orange and Lift in Pineapple and Grapefruit flavours.
Garlic Cheese Chips
The hand cut chips in garlic cheese sauce was a nice combination and was super delicious.
Salmon and Salad
The salmon was freshly cooked to order and the salad with beetroot, carrots, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes made the perfect salad for a hot, sunny day.
Cod and chips with The JUMBOBattered Sausage
Make sure you order the Cod and Chips Box because its really fresh and full of flavour. We topped ours off with the JUMBO Battered Sausage that was crunchy on the outside and soft and light in the middle.
Calamari and Chips
This serving was my favourite. The calamari was well cooked and the batter was delicious.
Jonathan Power at the JP McCaffrey’s Ice Cream Stand
Jonathan Power, the Managing Director, was enthusiastic about bringing this traditional Irish and British chip joint to Sydney. He even had the huge industrial fryer shipped all the way from UK! With friendly staff, great service and well priced meals, it does not surprise me that JP McCaffrey’s was featured in the Daily Telegraph with some of the best Fish & Chips in town!
Before leaving, we had to try the 99s and I must say, it is one of the best soft serves I’ve had in Sydney. It was yum!
