Sydney Fish Market

It’ no secret that I love markets: they are often the best place to sample cheap fresh food and local delicacies. That’s why I was so happy when I heard about the Sydney Fish Market.

The market was quite similar to Santiago’s one, although slightly less busy and more organized, illustrating the expected difference between the Latin and the British cultures. Or should I say the Chinese culture? Half of the stalls were Chinese and offered both the traditional fish & chips dish along with sweet chilli octopus. Talk about a globalized world!

Seafood and shellfish looked remarkably fresh and varied, with crabs, octopus, scallops, lobsters, and dozens of different kinds of fish. Great place for lunch!

  1. The crabs and lobsters look so beautiful! You wont like our wet markets here though. It’s so smelly, and often dirty! That’s why I don’t frequent there. It’s been years since I last went to one.

  2. @Em – Yep, I had a great fish & chips!

    @Priyank – 😆 Actually, the one in Sydney didn’t smell at all, I found that disappointing!

    @kyh – Oh, I’ve been to Chinese markets, I know what you are talking about!

    @khengsiong – Exactly! Markets often a good glimpse of the culture.
