Last week, while I was clearing my brain of clutter in between tasks at work, I came across a picture on the interwebs of a battered sausage. A staple of the almighty fish and chip shop, I started craving anything fish and chip shop related!
There don’t seem to be any really good places to get proper fish and chips here in Frankfurt so I settled by going to try a fish restaurant I always pass but have never been to – Doy Doy.
It’s situated near to Konstablewache, if you walk past C&A, it’s on the right hand side of the road a little further than Rossman. It looks like a the average side-of-the-road casual place, with cheap white tables and no swankiness going on at all. But you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover!
Our meals were about 8 euros each and were really delicious. The staff were very friendly too. When we tipped our waiter at the end he was genuinely happy – I guess they don’t get so many nice customers.
Coming from Japan to Germany, I find it hard to live without fish. My family don’t eat fish at all so it was always a treat for me and I’d order it when we went out for meals. In Japan, I’d buy pre-made stuff from the supermarkets because that stuff was so much better than anything I could make myself. But here, the only cost-friendly way to eat fish is the little packets of salmon in Rewe. You can get cuts of fish for reasonable prices if you go to Galeria just before it closes, but otherwise you’re paying through the nose for it. So, for 8 euros, to get really good fish done in really yummy ways, it’s a real gem of a restaurant. I urge any fish-lover to go try it out.
You can find Doy Doy at Zeil 25, 60313 Frankfurt.
