Clues to help find Otago’s best fish and chip shops can be found in the national awards used to recognise those using best practice frying methods.
To help identify the best fish and chips in New Zealand, we’ve drawn on many sources including which fryers have taken awards at the national Best Chip Shop competitions. These awards have run since 2006 and are a useful guide to identifying the best in the country and in each region.
Our guide to the best fish and chips in Otago includes the following recommendations:
