Fish for dinner

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

The new fish shop that's opened in Willoughby has some excellent fish. What they have on offer varies greatly as they only buy quality fresh fish. If they cant get it, they don't sell cheap rubbish instead. I bought some fish after work and Chika cooked this up

More German Beers
