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.

Union Square Fish & Chips

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