In NZ for an extended stay and part of my visit will be to find chowhoundy places, of course! Have had a few less than stellar fish 'n chips in the Cuba st. section of Wellington, so far, but want to give a shout out for the Maclean Fish Supply in Paraparaumu Beach on the Kapati coast for a great Tarahiki battered fish and crunchy and moist (though maybe too many broken pieces) chips. Ate it on the beach of course. with a nondescript but good priced cab/merlot. hot greasy fun yummy!
