MELBOURNE | Scales Fish & Chippery occupies the space formerly home to Jack Horner, just around the corner from TCL HQ, and takes a very different approach to its predecessor. While Jack Horner was new concept that locals never quite gelled with, Scales’s concept is one of the most simple around – a fish and chip shop. Yes, that’s right, just a simple, old school fish and chip shop, and judging by the number of people we see either eating in or waiting for take away each evening, it’s just what the area needed.

The menu at Scales is nice and simple – seven types of fish, small, medium or large chips, and a range of other favourites like calamari rings, crab sticks,  chicken nuggets, dim sims and potato cakes.  A range of packs give you better value options to pick and choose from, and if it’s something healthier you’re after you can have your fish grilled instead of fried, and replace chips with one of the several salads on offer, or seasoned brown rice. We’re big fans of the flake and rockling, and usually get a mixture of grilled and fried fish. The grilled fish is nicely seasoned and flavoursome, while the fried fish has a nice, light batter which leaves very little greasy residue. All the seafood is of a high quality, sourced from Australia and New Zealand.

The chips are simple and tasty, and the salads are decent too, with the traditional Greek salad being our favourite. There are a few burgers and wraps offered too, but for us it’s all about the fish and chips, which is what Scales does best. All of the menu options are nice and affordable too – you can easily get your fill for around $10 a person.

In the six weeks that Scales has been open, we’ve been there four times – service is friendly, the tunes are good, and the food is tasty and affordable. Sometimes the simplest and old concepts really are the best.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
