Where to source your Easter treats
Chocolate + hot cross buns = the best holiday of the year.
While the kids (and the sweet-toothed grown-ups) still see Easter as The Chocolate Holiday, our gourmet side much prefers to focus on the traditional seafood!
But where to tackle the task of stocking up on everything you need for the annual Good Friday (and following) feast without wasting a single squid on terrible trout?
From fin-tastic fish to scallops and every kind of shellfish in between, there’s nothing these purveyors of fresh seafood Brisbane-wide can’t provide.
The Fish Factory is an institution for southsiders, and while their mixed grill for one (bugs, prawns, calamari, scallops and chips) is amazing, it’s the ocean-fresh produce that brings in the inspired chefs! Mountains of fish, prawns, oysters and crabs lay on icy displays for you to trawl through. We recommend picking up as early as possible as this place gets BUSY around the holidays.
Forget Good Friday and make it a Great Friday with this Kangaroo Point fave! You can pre-order juicy oysters and peeled prawns to enjoy over the Easter weekend, as well as loads of cooked classics from their menu, including some great value share packs. Head here for more info and to get your order in by midday on Wednesday, March 31 for pick-up on Great Friday!
This Newstead spot doesn’t just sell great local produce–they can also make a meal of it for you to take-away, and they even have a Japanese section if you’re angling for some sashimi. Whether you’re chasing a couple of kilos of prawns or a massive seafood platter, give them a call on 3257 7554 to place your order for Easter today!
Known as one of Brisbane’s fave seafood suppliers, Samies has been a family-operated business for over 30 years, forever luring customers back for their mouth-watering prawns, bugs and crabs. The staff will even fillet your fish in store, or (if cooking is a pain in the bass) fry up battered goodness for you to take away. You can order online for pick-up and delivery here.
This West End staple has you sorted for seafood: we’re talking king prawns (fresh and cooked), oysters, barramundi, Tassie salmon and more! Even better, if you’re really scaling the town for a certain fillet, The Stores will do their best to source it for you.
Pre-order and pick up your platter this Easter, or save the fuss and have it delivered straight to your door (if you’re in the area). With over 180 seafood products and a takeaway outlet that includes sushi and oysters, we might just perch ourselves there over Easter!
Now that’s upscale!
