Melbourne gluten free fish and chips


For a coeliac, getting gluten free fish and chips is not a matter of “just going for fish & chips” like it is for normal people. For many it is a a planned exercise and we often travel miles to have it as it is such a rare treat.  Luckily there are more and more options available in Melbourne now, so this lists some of the popular ones.

For me, a fish and chip meal doesn’t seem complete without a potato cake! If you are Australian or Scottish you will know what a potato cake (or scallop) is – for everyone else, it is basically a large slice of potato, battered & fried and is the best part of a visit to the fish and chip shop (put salt on it if it hasn’t already been salted). As kids in Australia, we would get a couple of these as a snack instead of chips.
