    In Australia deep fried potato cakes are commonly sold in fish and chip shops and takeaway food shops. In New South Wales, they are usually referred to as "scallops" or potato scallops, however the term "potato cakes" is used across the Southern states of Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia. The Potato Cake is also known as a Potato Scollop on Western Australia, and as a Potato Fritter in Queensland.

    Potato scallops originate from northern England and are common in fish and chip shops there. This variant is normally a thick slice of potato, dipped in batter and fried, with no additional flavouring added except salt. Hash browns, which are also widely available, are distinctly different.

    In New Zealand and Scotland, what are known as potato cakes in Australia are known as potato fritters and are of the same type as the English variant. They are very common in fish and chip shops and are often the cheapest item on the menu.

    Thank you wikipedia

    I call it a fritter, i'm from SA.
    A scallop is seafood and a cake is a dessert.

    I call them a double-carbed mess. They are so popular, but I don't see the appeal?
