Sydney Fish Market!

Until 1945, the marketing of fish in New South Wales was conducted by licensed fish agents operating out of Haymarket fish market, or by unlicensed operators elsewhere in the state.

In 1945, the New South Wales government amended the Fisheries and Oyster Farms Act to effectively cancel all licenses held by Sydney fish agents and transferred the marketing of fish in New South Wales to the Chief Secretary’s Department.

Ok, i just officially experienced a hemorrhage reading that, if you want you can google that, use “history of sydney seafood market.” #nosebleed

With that said, i have a seafood diet. I see food, i eat it. It is a crime not to visit the Sydney Fish Market if you are in the city. If you are a serious foodie that is, unless you are allergic to seafood and you can just pass the time seeing food lol.

Seafood platter, squid, octopus, scallops, fish, prawns

They have a limited number of outlets, but the selection and variety of a ailable fresh produce is sooo big you can literally get lost in picking out your food options. The easiest is to get a seafood platter and you have a nice selection on a plate whether you have it for yourself or to share with a companion.

Since HungryPanda didn’t really have much of a meal before he left the hotel, he ended up getting the seafood platter, an order of prawn kebabs, fish and chips, grilled fish with fries and oysters for appetizers, err, to share with his trusty guide and friend (thanks Eden!).

It was interesting how they prepared the scallops, it was topped with some seasoning, cheese, blasted with a flame torch then topped with salmon eggs or crab roe, i can’t really tell. Too bad HungryPanda was too full otherwise he would have gotten a plate as well!

The master oyster shucker! Yes, shucking is a real word!

You can choose to stay indoor or find one of the outdoor parasols and eat by the bay, just be careful with the birds as they have a tendency to hang around and swoop down on unsuspecting asian tourists. Yes, they know you are asian and will target you.

Overall, it was a great experience and if i get the chance to visit Sydney, i would have to make another visit to this awesome place!
