Albany’s Hooked on Middleton, Ocean and Paddock fight it out for fish-and-chip award
Two Albany fish and chips spots are going head-to-head for bragging rights as voting for Australia’s biggest fish and chip award enters its final days.
Albany chippies Hooked on Middleton and Ocean and Paddock hope locals cast their Australian Fish and Chips Awards votes online before voting closes on Friday after setting Albany apart as the place to go for ocean grub last year.
Entering as the reigning national champions, Hooked co-owner Hayley Vale said her business was steering a familiar course to the 2019 vote.
“It’ll be exactly the same as last year, because it seems to work,” she said.
“We use fresh local fish from all the fishermen down here — it’s just local fish that dad fillets all himself.
“I think that’s probably what helped us win the award last year.”
Ocean and Paddock nabbed the people’s choice popular vote for WA in the competition last year.
