I love Kalk Bay! It just seems to get better. There are so many little treasure trove places to visit its a mini adventure everytime I go. I have so many ‘favourite’ places to visit when I am there, I rarely get to try any new ones, but on Saturday I got to go to Kalky’s for the first time.
I have always seen and heard about it, but quite frankly thought it was far to grungy and greasy looking to go into. What a pleasant surprise! I was with friends who wanted to eat fish & chips so off we went.
The place was packed and there was a steady queue at the counter. The very generous and reasonably priced portions of battered fish and chips kept rolling out the kitchen. All served on stainless steel plates and bowls and at wooden bench tables covered with red plastic table cloths. Lovely!
My friends ordered grilled yellowtail (which is green on the SASSI list), fishcakes and a salad which comes with an olive oil and coriander, pesto type dressing (which I thought was quite impressive given the surrounds), and everything was delicious (I had a little sample of each).
All the fish is freshly caught and available right there at the harbour.
One of the highlights was a very charismatic waitress ‘Gadija”.
I’m looking forward to going back when I want an authentic, local fish and chips eating experience.
