Affectionately referred to as the Salt ‘n’ Bat by locals, this fish and chippery has been an institution for University of Queensland students and St Lucia locals for well over a decade. While the casual eatery has changed hands a number of times in its day (swinging between fresh and frozen produce in the process), current owner Charlie Lambis sets the bar high. As a third generation fish and chip shop owner (with a fourth gen coming through the ranks), Lambis gets Australian and New Zealand seafood delivered fresh daily and fillets fish onsite, including Queensland wild snapper and sea perch from the cool waters of NZ. The family’s Cyprus heritage is honoured with Greek-style Turkish delight and sticky housemade baklava.
