Supermarket
“I know, I know...a Pak N Save? But, if you're looking for fresh fish or great steak this is actually the place. All the good stuff's down around the fish counter - the good steaks are there too. Pro tip - if you like snapper, try trevally. It tastes just as food, and is half the price.”
