Before you attempt to wrap your tongue around the name, never fear – that ‘v’ is pronounced as a ‘u’ (like Bvlgari, darling). It may be a fancy-pants moniker for a fish-and-chip shop, but the prices are surprisingly easy on the wallet. Sure, you could don your cloak of smug and order the virtuous grilled salmon with brown rice and Greek salad, but then you’d be passing up the chance to tap Belvga’s unlimited supply of tartare sauce. Slather it over fresh snapper or flake fillets, battered and fried to order. Accessorise your crunchy, golden loot with old-school accoutrements, including that Melbourne staple, the fried dim sim, plus fluffy-centred potato cakes, salty-sweet pineapple fritters and the most divisive of side dishes, the pickled egg. Round things out with a bottle of Corona, a glass of chardy, or a can of fizzy drink if you prefer. Everybody wins.

I ordered a veggie burger from this shop tonight. I requested half the normal sweet chili sauce. And to make sure they didn't forget I repeated my request after I payed for the order. Pretty simple request right? Wrong. I got home and the burger had the normal amount of sauce which duly leaked out over my chips. For me it ruined the burger. But to be fair I called them to pass on my feedback. A young guy answered the phone. He passed on my feedback to the Manager who I heard say rather defensively in the background "So what does he want us to do??". The young guy came back to the phone & gave me a half hearted apology & dismissively told me "mistakes happen you know". I gave him a few moments to offer to replace the burger. No such offer. I then suggested they should take a poultry couple of dollars off my next order and got the "Oh oh well ahh...awkward silence" response. Pathetic. They get 4 for their food and 0 for their service. So 1 is all they deserve!!
