    Kai Kart: Blue cod 'n' Bluff oysters

    by TheWanderingCamel Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With such a perfect, sunny day and only a few hours to explore, the last thing we wanted to do was spend any more time than necessary over lunch, but we were still keen to sample Stewart Island's famed Blue Cod and Southland's other great delicacy - Bluff oysters. Luckily both were on the day's frying list at the island's reknowned fish bar - Kai Kart - and so we placed our order and did what every right-thinking fish and chip eater does - took our paper parcel of goodies down to the water's edge, sat in the sun and took in the view as we polished off the lot, right down to the last crispy morsel.

    Favorite Dish: The freshest of locally caught fish - blue cod, its firm, large-flaked flesh considered by most people the best of all New Zealand's excellent fish - was our choice, with a side order of the first of a seasonal delicacy - Bluff oysters - and golden chips, with a good shake of salt and a squeeze of fresh lemon. A heart surgeon's nightmare but soooo delicious
