#1424 Ol’ School Fish’n’Chips in Fitzroy

Three Kiwis – I’m flanked by Matt Collins and Bruce Raubenheimer.

So Melbourne is like Little New Zealand. I went out with a few friends last night and ran into so many Kiwis it was ridiculous. Highlight was Ol’ School Fish’n’Chips on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy – the walls are crammed with salty old sea dog memorabilia and the tables are stacked with heaping plates of deep fried fish and seafood, or bok choy and brown rice (you decide). Brunswick Street reminds me of San Francisco with all its old rundown looking buildings and one-of-a-kind stores. I still haven’t seen it during the daytime yet though, so it’s probably about time I got off the computer and ventured out into the world.

How many New Zealanders does it take to pay a parking metre?
