Time Out Melbourne

No summer is complete without a serving or two of fish and chips. We asked five Melbourne food writers to reel in their favourites

Belvga Fish and Chippery

Accessorise your crunchy, golden loot with old-school accoutrements, including that Melbourne staple, the fried dim sim, plus fluffy-centred potato cakes, salty-sweet pineapple fritters and the most divisive of side dishes, the pickled egg. South Yarra.

The Fish Market

If you’re the kind to judge a fish-and-chipper by its potato cakes, the Fish Market is up to the challenge. Richmond.

Hooked Healthy Seafood Fitzroy

The rustic décor at Hooked Healthy Seafood echoes its food: simple, considered, unpretentious. Fitzroy.

Tommy Ruff Fish Bar

The New Age of Fish & Chips is coming and Tommy Ruff is its newspaper-wrapped guru. Elsternwick.

Union Square Fish & Chips

With almost 20 years in the biz, owner Hazem Hazouri knows how to cook a piece of fish. Brunswick West.
