Down in south Sydney is a true Sydney burger classic.

Rotisserie Murray Cod & Gravy Roll – Charcoal Fish

Charcoal Fish is a unique blend of a charcoal-chicken-inspired shop and fish-and-chipper. They sustainably source the native Australian Murray Cod and utilize every part of the fish. The aging process takes a week, and it’s worth it when the fish finally goes onto the charcoal barbeque grill. Their Rotisserie Murray Cod & Gravy Roll is a showstopper, full of tender white fish and crisp, crackling skin. It’s not far-fetched to say Charcoal Fish redefines how tasty fish and burgers can be.
