Melbourne gluten free fish and chips

Melb - Hooked F&C_2opt

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 us it is planned exercise and we often travel miles to have it as it is such a rare treat.

If you feel like this, then you have to go to ‘Hooked’ in Melbourne for the most divine gluten free fish and chips, including the Australian must-have – potato cakes! Yum yum yum! 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.  They also have great salads, so you can feel like you are offsetting the naughtiness of the fish and chips.

Hooked has a fantastic gluten free menu and a separate fryer.  Tartare sauce is also gluten free.

They have three shops, all slightly out of the city centre: one in Chapel Street, Windsor (next to South Yarra), one in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy and they have recently (2014) opened a store in Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn. They all have seating, but the Brunswick Street store also has a courtyard area out the back so is a nice place to stop if the weather is good.
