At Mix106.3 food is one of the most talked about topics around the watercooler and we celebrate food holidays hard.
Whilst most people associate Easter with large quantities of chocolate, we’re taking an opportunity to remember the other important food related dish centred around Easter. Which is fish on Good Friday.
There is nothing wrong with take away and fast food. If you’re feeling like staying in and binging the next episode of Ted Lasso or the Mandalorian but don’t feel like cooking, then we have you covered!
Fillet o’ Fish – McDonald’s
This bad boy has been a staple of the maccas menu for a long time for a reason, enough said.
Seafood Basket – Spit Shack
If you’re lucky enough to have a Spit Shack nearby then you know how good this place really is. Their fish food may be one of their best under rated gems and their Seafood Basket with chips is the perfect way to enjoy a classic takeaway, fast fish and chips!
Garlic King Prawn Pizza – Manoosh Pizzeria
If you’ve ever indulged in their pizza goodness, then you know what’s up.
So, if you’re desperate for a pizza hit and you’re willing to spend a bit more than Domino’s then you are eating well with their Garlic King Prawn Pizza! Trust me.

If you’re planning on catching up with some friends, family or your special someone and don’t know where to take them for some fishy goodness then look no further!
The Fish Shack
Whilst technically still a takeaway, targeting only a single dish from The Fish Shack would be an injustice. Like other local small family run takeaways, whether you crave burgers, fish and chips or even loaded fries you’ve plenty of options. As well as a sea of vegan options for those who can’t indulge in fish.
Fish can come in all forms and sometimes the best form for your feed from the deep comes wrapped in a tortilla! If you’re looking for a night of Mexican cuisine, then don’t worry as the Burrito Bar in Tuggeranong has you covered. Offering options for tacos, burritos and salad bowls with fish!
Maestral Mediteranean Seafood Restaurant
If you’re feeling a classic dining experience with nearly an entirely seafood-based menu then you can’t do any better than Maestral. Rocking; Oysters, Prawns and some amazing seafood platters for two.
