For $500, You Can Try Australia’s Most Expensive Fish & Chips

Below Deck Fish Chips

To commemorate the launch of Below Deck Down Under, streaming service Hayu has partnered with Barangaroo establishment to serve up something that’s just as delightfully over-the-top: Australia’s fanciest fish and chips.

Curated by’s Head Chef & Owner Michael Milkovic, this hilariously ostentatious interpretation of the humble weekday lunch features some of the world’s most sought-after ingredients. According to the official press release, for the low low price of just $500, you could be experiencing an extravagant dish comprised of…

"Glacier 51 Patagonian Toothfish and Eastern Rock Lobster in Belvedere Single Grain Vodka Crisp Batter... a side of Thorpdale Sebago Chips with Black Spanish Winter Truffles, topped with Hadid Royal Oscietra Caviar - launched by Gigi & Bella Hadid’s father, Mohamed Hadid - dusted in Giusto Manetti Gold Leaf and served with a side of Cristal champagne dipping sauce."

Like we said… ridiculous.

But sadly, the offering won’t be around forever. So if you have any burning desire to blow $500 on Below Deck Down Under-themed fish and chips, you have until March 24th of 2022 to hit up Barangaroo’s for a taste – book a table directly here.
