MELBOURNE | Hunky Dory Richmond is a great example of a modern fish and chippery. There are a few Hunky Dory branches around these days but the Swan Street store is our local. It originated with one store in 2004 but the owner Greg Robotis’ family have been catching and cooking fish for generations, way back to Greece in 1924.

The menu contains classic dishes like potato cakes, dim sims, fried fish in addition to modern dishes such as quinoa salad and grilled platters. This means there is something for everyone whether you want something healthier or the traditional fish and chips. The portions at Hunky Dory are generous and great value for money so make sure you visit this location when you are hungry.

The salt ‘n’ pepper calamari with rice is a must try dish – the calamari is coated in a thin layer of flour and spices and lightly fried providing a mildly crisp layer on the outside while the calamari is still tender. The addition of the brown rice gives the dish an additional textural element. It’s not heavy at all and is really enjoyable. If you are a fan of old school fish and chips the Hunky Dory fried pack is great. The pack contains a fillet of flake, potato cake, dim sim, chips, lemon and tartare sauce for $11.00 and won’t leave you hungry.

For those who don’t want anything fried the grilled fish platter is the way to go. A delicate piece of flake is grilled and topped with some Greek inspired herbs, served with a Greek salad and a small portion of chips. The fish is perfectly cooked and really delicious.

On the occasion we visited we also ordered a kale, spinach and broccoli salad with a miso vinaigrette which was a rare misstep as it was extremely salty, to be almost inedible. Given the quality of the rest of the food, we’re going to say this might have been a one-off mistake.

Overall Hunky Dory is a good option for a mid-week meal or a night you can’t be bothered cooking. It serves up great quality seafood, generous portions and is well priced.Service is friendly and food comes out fast.
