Erik’s Fish & Chips, Queenstown, NZ

Gluten free fish and chips in Queenstown and Wanaka

I visited Erik’s Fish & Chips in Queenstown on a sunny day over Easter 2019. I found them on Coeliac New Zealand’s dining out accreditation list (which unfortunately has since been locked to members only).

Both locations are food truck style but the Queenstown one has a small area with inside seating.

The menu

Their signage says ‘everything available gluten free’ but when I asked, I was told everything was gluten free – this is presumably to not put off people who think gluten free means flavour free. The FAQ on their website states that everything is gluten free except the malt vinegar.

There is a good variety of options on the menu, including meal deals for families and kids.  Fish is local and they have seafood such as calamari, mussels and scallops. For those that don’t like fish, there is also chicken and hot dogs,

The food

We chose traditional fish and chips, with potato fritters (potato cakes in Australian lingo) as well as a new thing for me, cauliflower bites. I loved these! The serve is quite big, so try and share these among a few people.  The batter was nice and light and everything was delicious.

They have dessert too – try the deep fried kiwi fruit, banana or donuts. I went back another day to have a donut which was pretty good and had lots of cinnamon sugar on it.

The Queenstown location is tucked away in a little laneway and is a short walk to the lake if you want to take your fish and chips down there.  The Wanaka location is on the main road in town so very easy to find.
