Had an unexpectedly great meal at Rockfish last night. What do you get if you combine the freshest fish and seafood with deep fat frying techniques...you get Rockfish and the experience is excellent. My wife started with the “Half Pint of Norwegian Prawns”, which she loved, and I had the tempura prawns, which were as good as tempura gets outside Japan...so pretty damn good. I followed that with fresh Brill, served in all its buttery glory, and my wife had the turbot....these dishes were winners as the fish was so fantastically fresh...probably just out of the sea that day and the preparation let the freshness shine through. There is nothing quite like fresh fish prepared simply. We got a side order of mushy peas with curry sauce too - these were fantastic but completely unnecessary...even if you don’t like mushy peas though, the addition of the curry sauce makes them absolutely delicious. The onion rings are worth mentioning also - pickled onions deep fried in the most delicious batter...this is a combination that I have never seen elsewhere and we pretty much inhaled them. If there is one thing I recommend here, it is the onion rings. Overall, this is a restaurant that buys the very freshest ingredient and then prepares them in a way that lets the flavours shine. To call it fish and chips seems, in a way, like a mild insult...but it really is fabulous fish & chips and Rockfish are clearly very proud of it, as they should be. We enjoyed our meal tonight more than we did the Michelin-recommended restaurant just down the street, where we ate the night before for 3 times the price. That speaks volumes.
