Todd took me to Bed-Stuy Fish Fry. Dang, we were hungry. They were out of my top two choices 1) Fish & Grits and 2) Fish & Waffles. Too bad. Those sounds so good.

We both got Fried Fish Dinners ($10 with 2 sides). The whiting fish dinner is 6 pieces and the catfish is 4. I usually like whiting more, but this time catfish was superior. Both fish were fried nicely. Seasoning was a little bland, but dipping it in the sour cream and the salty hot sauce made it quite tasty.

My black eyed peas had a chunk of ham in it and was good. The mac n cheese and string beans were decent.

Our wait was long and Todd fell asleep, but they do say “The Fish and Shrimp are fresh and cooked to order. So give us 3 mins to catch it, 1 min to shake in the batter, 10 mins to cook it and another minute to serve it!!!! Hot and fresh so you can enjoy the best fish on the planet!!”

Although we were the only white people in there, we didn’t feel out of place. The ladies were quite nice to us. Huge ass container of Kool-Aid!
