It’s Lenten season, and it’s the time for a fish fry. And what better place to find a Lenten fish fry than church? Dommy says her multiethnic church mixes it up, and is currently doing Cajun fish fries.
That means snapper and catfish in cornmeal batter (go for the catfish), with lots of Louisiana hot sauce. Those church ladies have got it goin’ on—the coating is great and crispy, the fish moist and fresh.
Sides are pretty industrial, but the potato salad is good, perked up with some pepper and, of course, hot sauce.
A fish plate with sides and soda is $7; a few extra bucks gets you dessert, like sweet and fluffy banana pudding.
Fish fry happens on Fridays, 4 to 7 p.m. Good Friday features Mexican ladies with homemade ceviche.
