Welcome to the first guest contribution on Footscray Food Blog! Christie of OH-MY-LA (a local Western suburbs blog) has kindly provided the review below. Glad to hear from a fellow chicken-salt addict, Christie! If you too would like to send in a review to Footscray Food Blog, please do, via footscrayfoodblog at gmail dot com.

No trip to Willy beach is really complete without fish’n’chips and last Sunday was no exception. We cruised along the Esplanade on our bikes and stopped at Rotunda (next to Sirens) to see what the kiosk had to offer for lunch. From an exhaustive list of meal deals we selected small chips, 2 dim sims, 2 calamari and 2 potato cakes. Our lunch was served in a cardboard tray and was ready in less than 10 minutes, we didn’t mind the wait as we enjoyed strains of an acoustic performer entertaining a function upstairs. We ripped open the paper bag to see a delicious selection of golden goodies. Everything was so crispy and fresh (yes even the potato cakes) and every bite was a pleasure. Their only downfall was the lack of chicken salt, but for a measly $8.90, we very much enjoyed our fish’n’chips at the beach and I’ll happily bring my own next time.
