Cash in your chips - and fish - at the Star casino 

The new Star casino eating ground is a bit of a hot prospect. There’s a Gelato Messina (love that dulce de leche number, not to mention the smashed apple pie 'scream) and Adriano Zumbo’s glamorous new store complete with a revolving dessert train. Steve Manfredi’s restaurant Balla is just about to open and, of course, the hotly anticipated Dave Chang restaurant, Momofuku Siebo. But today, it’s all about the fish and chips at Flying Fish and Chips - chef/restaurateur Peter Kuruvita’s take-away outlet. It’s the perfect spot to get a fried snack before a gig at Rock Lily (if, say, you’re not in the mood for Din Tai Fung’s xiao long bau). Yes, you’re eating in a food court, but it’s a very stylish food court, and you get proper cutlery with your meal - no plastic sporks here, friends. The classic fish and chips (at a fairly reasonable $15.90) is a big pile of crisp, hand-cut chips, a couple of wedges of lemon, tomato sauce, and tartare sauce with a big piece of battered, flaky white-fleshed fish. Trust us: it's the fish and chips you remember loving as a kid but haven't been able to find anywhere since.
