Erik’s Fish and Chips: Our Story

Erik loves cooking traditional Kiwi food, and after more than 30 years in the food industry, Erik decided to open up the best fish and chips restaurants in Queenstown and Wanaka. Fish and chips have been a Kiwi tradition for more than 100 years, and a visit to New Zealand would not be complete without trying our delicious fish and chips.

As Southern Lakes residents, Erik is committed to sourcing local NZ ingredients, from potatoes grown in Canterbury to fish from Dunedin, delivered daily to our two locations in Queenstown and Wanaka.

Our family has faced food allergies and intolerances, so Erik wanted to find a way to bring all the flavour of fish and chips, without the (stomach!) pain. We have a dedicated gluten free kitchen, so it’s the perfect takeaway food for coeliac diets. Plus, we are nut free, most of our food is 100% dairy free and Erik’s also has halal certification!

We serve up the traditional Kiwi favourites, like battered Blue Cod and Hoki, tasty calamari rings and of course the humble chip. For something a little different try our popular kumara wedges, cauliflower bites, red onion wedges or our handmade hot dogs that have been crafted by Erik himself (with love!). If you’re feeling adventurous, go wild with our famous deep fried kiwifruit or banana desserts.

Our community really means a lot to us, which is why we’ve started many initiatives to give back to people in the community around us. Our latest project encourages children to read more chapter books at Wanaka Primary, by offering a free kid’s meal from Erik’s when they read 5 different chapter books. Next year, we plan to introduce our initiative to all local schools because of its great success! We’ve also been getting involved in the community through other initiatives such as:

  • Player of the day vouchers for a variety of local sports teams;
  • Providing prizes for many local fundraising events, including Aspiring Avalanche Dogs and LandSAR;
  • Donating products to Wanaka’s Food For Love and Let’s Eat;
  • Donating free meals to visiting families with sick children or family members;
  • Selling Cancer Society daffodils;
  • Volunteering at local events and Hospice Shop;
  • Contributing towards Project Crimson – planting native trees.

Because we enjoy giving back to our community so much, we really hope you can vote to support us and give even more to our chosen cause, Food For Love.
