After a late night / early morning eating out (1.00 AM) at East Ocean Rest, we woke up a bit late that day (as expected). Clock already showing 12 noon and we decided to hit Sydney Fish Market as we have been wanting to go there forever but never got the chance or feel too lazy to go there.

Interesting fact : parking for 1 hour costing only $2, but after that the rate goes up rapidly. For the next 1/2 hour after the 1 hour parking will cost you additional $5 (WTF?), with that in mind, we quickly find a parking spot and rushed off inside 😀

We decided to look around and eat at Peter’s as it looked busy and full of hungry patrons.

This is what salmon looks like as a whole fish, never see this before 😀

So many lobsters ….

Done with taking photos, Diana went over to hotfoods counter to get half lobster with salad & chips and I queued for some salmon sashimi.

Half lobster with salad and chips – $16.95
The salad was nice, mainly due to the sauce used (probably mix of tartare and mayo?). The lobster itself quite ok, have a bit difficulty when trying to fork out the meat, so have to use hand to get it done. Chips is soggy, they probably took the chips out from the fryer before it’s really cooked. Still it is quite a good value for half lobster. I don’t think you can get this anywhere else with this price.

Salmon sashimi 300gr – $12 ($40 per kg)
What more can I say? It is really very good value, you won’t get this much at any jap restaurant for the price. But soy sauce come at $0.20 per sachet and $1 for soy sauce with wasabi. So I am thinking of bringing my own soy sauce and wasabi next time I go here. Fish is just fresh and cut finely.

Finished with the foods, we saw this huge queue over at opposite shop. They do pretty decent seafoods so I will give it a try next time.

yum! I went to the fish market on the Friday that just passed and got myself grilled scallops, oysters mornay and half a lobster mornay from the fish market cafe. Also stopped after at Claudio’s for some salmon sashimi. I heard tho that despite the higher prices, de Costi’s still remains the better place to buy from?
