Best fush n chups

The Cairns Post have just completed a survey from readers about where the City's best tucker is found.

Amazingly, there's no mention of Villa Romana. Tropos was also left out of the list, that CairnsBlog readers rave about. And that dodgy burger bar in Bungalow is ignored.

Sheridan Street's Ocean Wild Seafood market (opposite Tobruk Pool) was also omitted. They certainly serve truly amazing fresh fush n chups, and have you seen their cheeky new TV advert?

I have to say, and I'm not a huge pie fan, but when I do, Meldrums in Grafton Street is really Pie Heaven.

Here's what Post readers said. However I'd love to hear your fav and not so favs, which could be even more interesting!
