Fish and chips

It seems like Duke of Perth is a top runner in the fish & chips contest, but I have to report that my visit there last week for the AYCE Friday was a disappointment. Our first plates of fish and chips were very oily. I requested a second platter and it too was oily, too oily to eat. The oil must have not been kept at the right temperature. I hope it was just a blip, but will reserve my 2-star rating till I've been there a second time. I'd like to see what others have to say now that it's 2012.

Fish and chips

Cleo's is an interesting, almost-dive bar that is an overlooked treasure. My companion and I had awesome fish and chips there for $5.50 as their Friday half-price special. Very un-british thin fries accompanied it, but I was happy because thicker chips are not my fave. It's a neighborhood watering hole, not a gastro-pub, and seems to attract men in kilts.
