Perth - Cicerellos

Tomorrow's the first day of Chinese New Year and mffs would like to wish everyone out there Happy Chinese New Year!! Gong Xi Fai Cai!

Cicerellos is no doubt one of the most famous Fish n Chips restaurant in Perth. Its close competitor is Kailis and I like to dine in both restaurants although they do have different specialties. I will go to Cicerellos for their Fish n Chips and Kailis for their grilled seafood. Both restaurants are located beside each other.

On weekends, the alfresco area will be crowded with people and seagulls. Do not leave your food unattended as those seagulls are really quick and aggressive with food!

Keep in mind that Cicerellos don't only sell Fish n Chips and they have a lot of other dishes as well. For tourists/first-timers i will recommend that you share a few dishes so you get to try a bit of everything.

First order - Grilled Garfish with Chips and salad - $19.90 approx
The garfish fillet was thin so it was slightly crispy on the outside It was perfectly cooked although it is easy to overcook fish. The fillets were lightly seasoned so the taste was not overwhelming and it brings out the freshness of the fish.

Order no.2 - 2 Beer Battered Fish fillets (minus the chips because the portion of the chips is INSANE and it will go to waste as it is impossible for one person to finish)
This is what Cicerellos is famous for - their beer battered fish. The batter is golden brown and is very crispy. I find it crispier than Kailis' fish n chips. The fish is also very fresh. I think the fish n chips here is better than Kailis although there is not much difference.
