Miami Fish Market Seafood Chowder tops Gourmet Traveller List

Fiona Donnelly – Queensland State Editor


When you’re fortunate enough to eat for a living and write for Gourmet Traveller, restaurant visits come with high expectations. It’s never less than an absolute thrill to encounter the creativity of chefs, admire their technical skills and ability to imbue intensity of flavour in every aspect of a dish.

But there’s also a feeling of yes, job very well done — that’s precisely as it should be. Before visiting Gold Coast newcomer, Miami Fish Market, I’d heard about the sashimi, the fresh uni, the seafood and more — but it was a simple cup of fish chowder that stopped me in my tracks. And it cost just $6.

Hot creamy, almost bisque-like, laced with chunks of fish — this soup was good enough to grace any table, anywhere. Would it be as impressive next time, with the added burden of expectation? Who knows. But it was certainly the most surprisingly delicious thing I’ve eaten this year.
