“Almost everything has changed, from flooring to electricity,” she said.
“The good quality food that George believed in still exists.
“We don’t believe in frozen foods. Our flake is from Portland, and we get twice daily deliveries to stock up on other products. “
The new menu was selected by Johnathon Williams who has been practicing fish and chips for 12 years. The menu includes a range of salads, desserts, grilled and fried packs, and South Melbourne dim sims.
“Anything can be done to your liking,” Ms. Surbhi said.
“This is not your normal fish and chips store. Even if you have a health boost, you can have our salads and fresh grilled fish. We also take care of allergies, just tell our staff.”
Mr. Politis was delighted to hand over the seafood to Ms. Surbhi and was on hand to help her start the business.
“I feel very happy,” he said.
“After 56 years, I made the decision to retire and sold the business to these lovely, hardworking and determined people.
“I started with nothing and it took me four months to get started. But people helped me because they thought I deserved it. I helped Sophie because I think she deserves it. “
Ms Surbhi moved to Warrnambool in early July with her partner Ishan Mor and the couple also own Kebabs on Kepler.
“I had lived in a lot of different places,” she said.
“But when I first entered Warrnambool, I knew it was home.”
