Serenity Blu, Caroline Springs
I am going to put it out there and say these are the best fish n chips in the West and unless you can prove otherwise, it’s sticking!
Serenity Blu is a relatively newcomer to the Western Suburb of Caroline Springs and it is a welcome one. Owned by a local Greek family, the service here is just as exceptional as the food and the staff have a great enthusiasm, which makes the customer service excel.
When we sat down for our dinner, the waitress immediately dropped water at our table. Oh thank you lord! Finally. It has become such a rarity for this to occur in Melbourne cafes and restaurants that when it does happen it needs to be applauded.
This fish n chip shop offers both takeaway and dine in as the shop boasts a lot of space. The interior is bright and inviting and resembles the typical style of your local chip shop but with a bit more flare.
The menu offers a small selection of quality fish including shark, salmon fillet, snapper and blue grenadier and you can have grilled or battered. It has plenty of burgers on offer, as well as dishes like calamari, popcorn prawns and the addition of some Greek flare like the skewers. Most importantly though are the chips and Serenity Blue chips are awesome. There is nothing more disappointing ordering fish n chips to then get home and find you have a packet of soggy mushy chips. Serenity Blu do a perfect crispy chip cooked in vegetable oil and what we loved about them was that they did not taste greasy. We ordered a medium sized serve of chips with a double serving of the fish bites (also on the kid’s menu) and what we loved about those are that they use real fish and not processed rubbish like a lot of places do. The fish was lovely and fresh and the battered was crispy and delicious.
The presentation was beautiful and we loved the use of wooden boards for serving on giving it a really rustic feel. The owner and the staff constantly checked in on how the meal was going, interacted with the children and went as far as to ask us about our day. Something you very rarely come across but made our visit extra special.
People will come far and wide to try Serenity Blu because they tick all the boxes for exceptional food, fresh ingredients, friendly staff and great presentation. They also offer delivery service and specials for loyal customers. We can’t wait for our next visit.
