When hospitality pros Nick Mavris and his father Stace (owners of Fortitude Valley’s Wrapped Cafe) decided to pair up for a new food concept, selecting seafood was a no-brainer. As passionate lovers of seafood, the duo already had a good grasp on what made fish and chip shops great – a fresh catch, a diverse menu and uncomplicated delivery. Nick and Stace’s fish and chippery The Barra Boys occupies a bright corner spot on Stanley Street East, settling snugly into a new development with a crisp and clean fit-out that caters to dine-in eaters and the takeaway crowd. The Barra Boys specialises on small batches of fresh fish sourced regularly (with room for seasonal additions), sourcing its broad haul from The Fish Factory in Morningside.
Nick and Stace are keeping things classic for The Barra Boys offering, choosing to stick to familiar favourites for fans of a traditional catch, whether it be grilled, crumbed or battered. To start, patrons can select from a rod and reel combo that features the likes of cod, snapper, barramundi, salmon, calamari, barbecue octopus or prawn skewers. If your hunger is burger sized, you can quell it with one of five types – crumbed barra, classic cheeseburger, a stacked beef, bacon and egg, grilled chicken breast, and haloumi burgers are on offer. Like any good fish and chippery, The Barra Boys also dish up crispy potato scallops, prawn cutlets, dim sims, Chiko Rolls and sweet potato chips, plus nuggets for the little skippers. If you can’t make your mind up, a tacklebox feast will cover all bases. The Barra Boys also serve up a daily catch of fresh oysters, prawns, crab and fish for take-home consumption, but those dining in can sip on a selection of boutique wines and Mythos beer.
