I used to eat this stuff at least twice a week in high school. For a single meal, I would get a Filet O' Fish, a Big Mac, fries and a coke. Since my Junior/Senior year, I decided to start eating healthier and put a stop to the McDonald's.
The night before last, however, I was with my boyfriend and decided to go ahead and try a Filet O' Fish, which I had not so much as had a sniff of in the past (almost) 10 years. I was sure I would think it was not nearly as good as I had remembered, but was curious nonetheless.
With great shame and trepidation, I must confess that I LOVED it. I'm not sure whether it was because it was late at night, but it was very freshly fried. The breading was crisp and the filet itself was surprisingly juicy. The tarter sauce was salty and creamy, just as I remembered it. My only complaint is that the bun is a bit weak. It's slightly sweet and I'm more of a savory girl (especially when it comes to my hamburger buns!)
Alright, that's it! Now it's out in the open! I have confessed my sins and, you know what? I feel a little better.
Thank you, Diary (aka Chowhound)
