Squiddies has placed itself at the pinnacle of fish and chip stores in Dunedin for many years, being awarded the Critic award for best fish and chips more than three times in different years. This meant that there were very high expectations to be met for this seasoned Nuggeteer.

Were they met? Undecided. Let me explain.

Squiddies Nugs were flavoursome, they rivaled McDonalds I dare say -the pinnacle of Nugs- quite well. SNugs (as I call them) achieved this as I expected from their high standard of fried fish and potatoes, I don't know what it is but there's something they do to make all their fried heart attacks taste delicious.

Moving on to the other qualities, they were reasonably dry which was forgiven pairing with a nice sweet and sour or BBQ sauce would help this HOWEVER... The sauce.

THERE WAS NONE!

We see here the bane of many fish and chip stores, the lack of sauces or the microtransaction nature of purchasing sauces. The sauces that I could view on offer were Tomato which was a tin, far too much for SNugs worth 80c each and due to this they were left dry.

Apart from this the coating was acceptable and I was left satisfied with my purchase as I slipped my deep fried Moro bar into my mouth, accepting that my coronary manslaughter was about to begin.

At 80c these are fine. The coating was very good but ultimately the flavour let them down for me.
