Tommy Ruff / Accolades (Page 2)

Summer is well and truly upon us in Melbourne town, and for most the humble fish and chip dinner is synonymous with hot, beachy days. Having said that, sometimes we want to fancy it up a bit – that’s where Tommy Ruff comes in. Hiding slightly off Elsternwick’s main street, Tommy Ruff is serving up fish and chips like you’ve never seen before, with a focus on the freshest produce and a laid back experience that will have you coming back...

The crowd pleaser The owners are second-generation fish and chip experts who previously owned places such as Malvern's Red Mullet, but now they're bringing something for everyone with the cheerful Tommy Ruff restaurant. It's got a bright decking, fish-shaped ceramic water jugs and friendly table service. The menu swings from oysters to prawn tacos, panko-crumbed fillets in a bun, to classic fish and chip sets. The "saucy grills", such as a lovely grilled fish of the day dolloped with a verdant salsa verde...

I have such fond memories of fish and chips. We are one of those families that religiously (in the non-traditional sense of the word, because we aren’t religious at all) have fish and chips on Good Friday. Of course, we would have fish and chips other times of the year but Good Friday, the beginning of the long weekend, we would all gather together and that was our special night- greasy hands, sore tummies but fantastic company. Our family gathering fish...

The New Age of Fish & Chips is coming and Tommy Ruff is its newspaper-wrapped guru. Sure, the airy, friendly eatery serves up the regulatory beer-battered fillets of snapper or blue grenadier and crisp, salty chips. But Tommy Ruff is much, much more. An imaginative menu is a tribute to all things sea-worthy: grilled prawn tacos with a zesty salsa, crunchy panko-crusted calamari rings and the heart-stopping Stump Jumper Burger, stacked high with grilled or crumbed fish, lettuce, tomato and...

Tommy Ruff Fish Bar So, it was Good Friday and we were starving and after a fish and chips type of meal. Tommy Ruff was where we headed to and boy was it good. Will have to try their traditional fish and chips next time. We had: Seafood chowder with fish, prawns and mussels done Tommy's special way - it isn't your typical creamy seafood chowder. What we got is a light seafood broth with seafood pieces. Light and delicious. The crab claw...

Tommy Ruff Fish bar is rocking it up in Mordialloc along its beachy shores and fishy streets with its hip new fish and chip shop on Main St. Open 7 days a weeks from lunch til dinner with the intention of getting council approval to further extend their opening hours.  Having been already featured in The Age Good Food Guide and local papers the fish and chip is fast becoming a popular spot in the last few months. There are just...

LIKE many Australian customs, fish and chips came from England, but quickly adapted to fit local attitudes and conditions. Now, as sun-kissed days drift into long, balmy evenings, it’s hard to believe that a paper parcel of salty, fried goodness hasn’t always been part of our summers. KNOW A PLACE THAT SHOULD HAVE MADE THE LIST? COMMENT BELOW And while the old-school chipper can still be found on every high street, those that are dishing up Melbourne’s best are usually serving fish that’s...

TOMMY RUFF FISH BAR Opening early last year to much anticipation and excitement, Tommy Ruff has already firmly established itself as one of Melbourne's best fish and chipperies. Erring on the fancy side,, Tommy Ruff provides many of the standards, but mixes it up with some unique gems, including a  'Grill Bar' with lip-smacking seasoning options like Moroccan, Spanish, Asian and Mediterranean. Tommy's specialty dishes include a mussel pot, crispy fried whitebait, oysters and smoked salmon. Yum!  There's also an epic salad...
