Red Hot Cod
Don’t be fooled by the cardboard takeaway boxes, Red Hot Cod is not a slapdash takeaway joint. A world removed from the stodgy, oil-soaked fish and chips from days past, Red Hot Cod in Burleigh Heads dishes up fresh, Australian and New Zealand-caught fish, deliciously crispy chips, fresh seafood sides, burgers as well as a few Asian-inspired dishes (a throwback to the owners’ previous venture Red Hot Wok). Specialising in perfectly cooked seafood, the prawn cutlets and calamari are prepared by hand and cooked fresh to order and the fish is available grilled, crumbed or beer battered (they even do gluten-free batter for coeliac friends). If the sun is shining and the hill is calling, grab a Burleigh Beach Box to go and if cheap and cheerful is your criteria, the fish-fillet burger for just $10 is guaranteed to hit the spot. The fresh fish poke bowl is also a delightfully unexpected but delicious stand-out. So whether you’re in the mood for some classic fish and chips or you’re after something a little different, check out Red Hot Cod on the Gold Coast Highway in Burleigh Heads, you’ll be glad you did.
