I love weekends! It’s only on the weekends I get to go everywhere to try yummy stuff in my ‘hood. There are so many delicious places in South Melbourne I have only started discovering and I have been living in this area for almost a year!
To be honest, I wasn’t planning to go to Hunky Dory. I had a pasta craving that day and was hoping to go to Etto Pasta. Too bad I was hangry and Etto wasn’t open for another 20 mins so we decided to try Hunky Dory.
For those who didn’t know, Hunky Dory is a famous fish and chips shop in Melbourne. They have the usual suspects like grilled and fried fish, chips, calamari, dim sims as well as a section named “flavours of the world” which is grilled fish with spanish/ mexican/ asian flavours. Funnily enough they also offer lamb/ beef souvlaki burgers. Hubby and I looked at each other and jokingly commented wouldn’t it be hilarious if we both order souvlaki at a fish and chips shop.
I ordered the scallop skewer pack $18.5. It looks good doesn’t it? Well, it tasted equally amazing. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the chips were delicious and well seasoned. I chose a spinach salad to go with this and although it was fresh, it was drowning with salad dressing and had too much cheese.
Hubby ordered the Bay Pack $11.2. The fish was freshly battered and tasted like as if it just came out of the sea. The calamari was oh-so-tender but sadly the potato scallop was a let down, with more batter than potato. For a potato lover hubby was quite disappointed.
