Fish’n Tjips in the Mother City #capecuisine

  1. This is one of those unspoken realities of many Capetonian lives – buying fish (usually hake) and deep fried chips – what other nations would call french fries. So let’s start a quick collection of favorite spots, and if you have other ideas – we shall update…
    Found this photo on Flickr – anyone knows where it is?
  2. So, the question via @capetown on a sunny winter’s Saturday – and with courtesy to @lalliestweets who prompted the initiative with her request to #capeAdvice fans:

    @capeadvice @lalliestweets Plumstead Fisheries (Main Road) is great. Cheap, no frills but great slap chips, big portions. #capeadvice

  23. Don’t you just love it when you get great suggestions from locals?
  24. CapeTown
    thanks for great suggestions on takeaway truly capetonian fish and chips 🙂 #capeadvice (will collate)

    Sat, Jul 28 2012 05:29:29
  25. Only included the answers of those tweeps that used our hashtag #capeadvice in their tweets – thanks for making the collation easier. Hope you enjoy it.

    Any more? Tweet us with #capecuisine @capetown … Thanks!
  26. And also, our friend Cape Town Magazine did a feature that adds value to collated answers for @lalliestweets – and will help you on your quest to find fish freshly prepared from our Atlantic
  27. Well, all of this – and the opening of #Olympics2012 make me wonder – did we get our recipes for hake and chips from the British?! Or the Portugese? One thing is clear: Our shops and restaurants are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike – throughout the day 😉  Let us know when you find another good spot.
    – @iAmnotManyIt was fun putting this together… Thanks again for all the contributions.
