Owner of famous Northland fish shop says he's living the Kiwi dream

Tucked away in a small harbour in the Far North is one very famous fish shop. And its owner says manning the fryer has been a dream job.

Lee Graham and his wife, both chefs by trade, have been in charge of the Mangonui fish shop for the past 10 years.

They were on a tiki tour travelling the world and cooking, but one day they saw an opportunity they couldn't resist.

“We were looking for a business to buy and we thought the Mangonui fish shop would be the right place for us, so we thought we would give it a crack,” Mr Graham told TVNZ1's Seven Sharp.

They inherited a shop steeped in history and a very loyal following.
