Flake Attack, Mount Waverley by Bureaucrat

I always find it's like a game of Russian roulette when it comes to fish and chip shops... you walk into a chippy and you never know whether the fare will be as good as there were back in them good ol' days: fresh fish with a golden, crispy batter; chips done to perfection; and above all else, despite both the fish and chips being cooked in vats of boiling oil, they mustn't be greasy.  What puts me off getting f&c more often is that I get served defrosted fish fillets that are encased in a thick, greasy batter that's been cooked in not-too-fresh oil.

A recent craving for f&c led me to try out Flake Attack.  I believe this is a chain of fish and chipperies.  The online reviews for the place seemed okay and not overly negative.  

Flake Attack, Mount Waverley, flounder
For moi, I ordered a grilled flounder.  This was pretty good.  A large fillet of flounder which seemed to be fresh (or at the very least, it wasn't a piece of fish that had spent a good part of its life in the deep freeze) and succulent.  The batter was thin and nicely seasoned with some herbs.

I also got a serve of chips.  These were also pretty good - chunky, nice crispness on the outside and a softy mealy inner.

The Lawyer got the Attack Pack, which comprised of a fried flake, 2 calamari rings, 2 scallops, 1 seafood piece, chips and tartare sauce.  He was quite happy with the fish and especially the scallops, although I personally though the batter was a tad thick for all of the items.

I'd say that there would be better ones out there, but if you're in need to bump up your cholestrol, Flake Attack is a good enough fish and chippery in a pinch.
