Trawler Trash, Islington


A seafood restaurant with a difference has just opened its doors on Upper Street in Islington. Trawler Trash devotes its menu to the ‘trash’ catches of the ocean – unloved fish that tend to be overlooked by other fish restaurants.


Swish marble tables, textured walls and beautiful natural lighting create a perfect setting in which to enjoy the menu, which features pilchards, coley, Sprat, grey mullet and crayfish, all cooked with delicious ingredients to create tasty, alternative seafood dishes.


All the fish is cooked fresh and is never frozen, which is why Trawler Trash is closed on Mondays – the trawlers day of rest.


Culinary highlights include their cured herring, sea purslane & salted hake pate as well as their crunchy tempura seaweed. Having originated as a chippie, the classic dish remains a favourite, with a new, trashy twist: beer battered coley with chips, crushed peas and homemade tartare sauce.


Wash it all down with a pickle juice G&T, a crisp white wine, or a glass of bubbly.
