MELBOURNE | The Fishmonger’s Son had big shoes to fill when it took over the site of Canals Seafood in 2017, Canals had served the local community with some of Melbourne’s freshest seafood for over 100 years, and was an institution. Thankfully, The Fishmonger’s Son has proven itself to be a worthy successor.
The seafood shop is named after owner Anthony Yotis. He owns the shop with his wife Laura. Anthony is the son of fishmonger Konstantinos Yotis, who ran a popular seafood stall at Footscray’s wholesale market for over 40 years.
Anthony and Laura sell some of the best fresh Australian and New Zealand seafood in town at The Fishmonger’s Son. There’s fish, shellfish, whole fish, fillets, sashimi grade cutlets, and more. There’s a real passion for the produce here, with advice on how to cook and prepare your fish for a delicious meal.
Along with fresh seafood, there’s also an assortment of seafood related products, local and international. Think pasta, olive oil, salt, sauces, rice, preserved goods, and more.
It’s not just fish and pantry items for home either. At lunch, pop in for what’s one of Melbourne’s best rolls. Fresh Australian crayfish and prawns, house mayo, shallots, and baby cos inside a Martin’s Potato Rolls roll (the same ones Shake Shack use). The sushi and sashimi that’s available when the trained sushi chef is in is a whole lot of fantastic too.
Following in the footsteps of a beloved local shop is a hard proposition for any new business owner, but Anthony and Laura have hit the mark with The Fishmonger’s Son. Friendly, old fashioned great service, and quality produce.
