Sodafish - Lakes Entrance
The floating restaurant in the heart of Lakes Entrance has made waves in foodie circles, having already been awarded a chef's hat. Sodafish reinvents the humble fish & chips offering, dialling it up a notch with fresh seafood sourced from neighbouring fishing boats. We're not talking food miles here, we're talking food metres!
The restaurant, offering absolute waterfront views of Middle Boat Harbour, is an homage to the outstanding local seafood in a casual dining setting. Enjoy the freshest wild and sustainable fish, oysters and shellfish which chef and owner Nick Mahlook (from Crown's high-end seafood restaurant, The Atlantic) describes as "nostalgic charm meets modern classics". Expect to find wood-fired octopus, smoked mussels, King George Whiting with sea parsley, and classic fish and chips on the menu.
Downstairs is a fish and chippery with local beer and wines to go. They can be enjoyed on the lower decks or take away to the beach. The crew are slinging crispy battered flathead and potato cakes like there's no tomorrow, best washed down with a Sailors Grave Brewing ale of Gippsland's best restaurateurs have been putting lockdown time to good use, creating new must-do culinary experiences.
