|Home Made Potato Cakes|
I can’t really blog properly about this place because Shawn and I were already full from another meal when we passed by Theo’s Fish Bar. But what grabbed our attention as we walked past their window was the “gluten free” advertising and – what seemed to be – an amazingly fresh & delicious selection of salads. Not ones to pass up the opportunity to discover a new little eatery, we popped our heads inside.
We found ourselves in a very clean and slick looking fish & chip shop being run by a team of women (at least, we only saw women that day). There were a few patrons eating at the snug tables along the left wall, one lady appeared to have the fish, veggies and steamed rice dish, which looked delicious.
As a few of the older ladies managed the deep fryers and orders, a younger girl was taking the temperature of the fresh fish display. If any of them caught our eye, the immediately smiled.
|Minimum of Chips|
The level of care these ladies seemed to be putting into their business was really impressive, and although we’d already eaten…Shawn stepped up to the counter and ordered their home-made potato cakes and a minimum of chips.
The potato cakes were actually slices of potato, dipped into gluten free batter and were very light & crunchy. Although totally different to the standard mushy frozen potato cake we’re all so familiar with, we both liked the change. The chips were also light & crunchy, apparently a result of the type of oil they use to fry them in.
So, although I can’t vouch for their fish, burgers or salads … the place made enough of an impression on us – from the cleanliness, friendliness and healthy meal options – to try more from their menu!
