Fish and chips are so inherently Australian, they practically have a mullet and a wife called Kathleen. So, in this article, we’re not going to sell you on these places. Not really, they’re all great and you can rest assured of that. Stamp of approval and everything. Got it? Instead, we’re going to use each entry to give you a fun fish pun and see far we can take them. Again, to reiterate, you should be assured that every place on this list makes great fish and chips. But we are going to use this as an excuse for puns. You must forgive us, old chum!
