Maloo 2 (aka Fish 2)

The Chopper

The Chopper

After getting ripped off in my first Maloo-endevour, Ramaka from work took us under her wing and offered to take us straight to the source, the fishing boats. At 7am all the fishing boats come into the beach to sell their catch from that night. We met Ramaka on the beach at 6:50am and followed her around while she haggled and joked her way from boat to boat before purchasing 3kg of fish for the same price that I could have got a fish scale. She would not let us pay which was extremely generous as the cost of the fish was about a weeks wage. After our purchase we went to the fish chopper, who I’m not sure of what the opposite of fileted is but that’s what he did to our fish. Price wise, a real winner, hygiene wise – we are still alive so make of that what you will. Overall, it was a great way to buy fish at a great price, but I don’t think we will run the salmonella gauntlet again.

One thought on “Maloo 2 (aka Fish 2)

  1. Fresh seafood should be fine, no matter where you buy it from. Plus, unless you personally inspect the suppliers of big supermarket chains who present fish beautifully on clean ice in neon aisles, how do you know what conditions are at the source? I’ve eaten at roadside stalls and dodgy establishments the world over and am still alive! Just have to choose the right place to go – one with high turnover and lots of locals.
