First team lunch at my new job so we headed down in the stifling 39C heat down to the shore to Lucky Shag. Overlooking the Swan River and located a stone’s throw away from the Bell Tower on Riverside Drive, we chose a table inside to make the most of the air conditioning despite it being open to the outside dining area under the shaded umbrellas on the deck hovering over the water. I chose the seafood platter for a very reasonable $19. It didn’t take too long to get our meals out and I was presented with a nice basket filled with a fillet of crispy fried fish, 3 prawn cutlets, a scallop, a crab roll and a few squid rings. All fried of course which is just to my liking. Under all that were a very generous serving of chips with a side of thousand island sauce and a side of salad. I really enjoyed all of it and all components stayed hot and crisp for a long time which was great. Really enjoyed the fish and squid rings in particular as well as the chips, although, some had become a bit soggy being trapped under the seafood. I was stuffed after finishing the basket and managed a tiny bit of the salad. Pretty good meal in the end at excellent value. For the sports fans, there’s plenty of TV screens around so I caught a bit of the cricket. Unfortunately, upon exiting we were greeted by what felt like a blast out of a furnace!
Food Review Summary
Verdict: I really enjoyed my seafood platter and wasn’t let down at any stage. Very generous serving and great value for money. This isn’t the best fish and chips I’ve had but it certainly didn’t disgrace itself.
