The "healthy" fish and chip store concept has been around for a while - with the likes of Hunky Dory, Hooked and Saltwater Grill entering the scene, no longer are we stuck with just the good old potato cake and dim sim. However, from all of the 'healthy' fish and chip stores that I have been to, Tank Fish and Chips has been far my favourite.
Why you ask? Well to start with, they offer up one of the best fish burgers I've had. With its cheese, lettuce, lightly crumbed fish and lashings of sauce, this little beauty sandwiched in a fresh fluffy burger bun is fish burger heaven. The chips, however, while okay, are not the best chips going around (a touch on the dry side).
Tank also offers the usual suspect of fish with chips, or fish with salad and rice. However, distinguishing itself from the usual brown rice on offer, Tank's brown rice is deliciously seasoned.
The calamari is also a must - sold by the strip, it's deliciously seasoned and so tender you could cut it with a fork.
Located at both Emporium and Lygon Street, Tank Fish and Chips is definitely my recommendation if you have healthy fish and chips on the mind - especially seeing as they also serve wine!
Verdict: Love - get around to trying it soon
