Fishmonger

6 years ago...

In case anyone hasn't noticed, there is a new fishmonger shop opened at the corner of Ewell Road and Hollyfield Road.
He has only been open a couple of weeks, but I highly recommend popping in.

A great selection of fresh fish and a welcome addition to Surbiton.

Was excited at the prospect of having a fish monger in the area - I take nutrition very seriously as i am an amateur body builder, and am constantly on the lookout for sources of different high quality protein. Visited the shop, to find the guy nodding off in a chair at the back. Had to shuffle about a bit to get him to wake up. I then bought what looked like a glossy whole mini tuna. not cheap,- about £8. Got it home, baked in silver foil pouch with herbs and lemon, upon cooking, realised that this was a seriously spoiled fish. Obviously old, and the meat had gone gamey and tasted like liver- had to chuck the lot in the bin. I can only think that because they have a slow turn over, some of the fish just sits there for far too long. Such a shame. I wont be going back.

This fishmonger receives a big thumbs up from my husband & I. Ordered sashimi grade salmon & yellow fin tuna from him on Saturday to make our own sushi & it was fantastic! I've never tasted salmon like that before. Will definitely be back for more soon.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it suspicious that they're across the road from Fishponds Park? :)

I told you the fish was fresh.

I concur - a welcome addition away from the chains. This fishmonger doesn't do the usual (prev frozen) "wet fish" selection one often sees drably displayed in supermarkets. This guy goes to town with fresh clams, mussels, shrimps, lobsters, crayfish, seabass, bream, monkfish, squid and octopus etc... He even does a seafood mix of the above - which is great for the summer (if it ever comes) paella de mariscos.
