Captain Fish 'N' Chip/Caribbean Soul, Wyandanch, NY

Perhaps you've had your fill of fusion crapola in Great Neck and Rockville Center, and could care less about the micorscopically documented 'food scene' in Park Slope. If so, jump on the LIRR to either Wyandanch or Amityville stations and take the #33 bus to 1340 Straight Path.

This atelier d'genius sits opposite the Wyandanch unemployment office, and makes a most convenient stop after submitting a fraudulent workers comp claim (I'm sharing here, people, so don't rat me out). It's a small take-out spot offering Island food, chicken and ribs, and, most importantly, the best fried fish I've found in the area. The whiting, ultra-cheap and ultra-fresh, is ordered by most. Sandwiches of flounder and catfish are just under $6 - two generous fish fillets and two pieces of white bread. Squeeze bottles of hot sauce, jerk sauce, etc sit at the ready.

Have yet to try any of the shellfish.

The curries are good but I've found the quality of the accompanying rotis to vary (there's a Trini roti spot further up Straight Path on the right-hand side heading toward Wyandanch train station that I've yet to sample).

'Cheap as chips,' as we used to say, and the chips are indeed cheap. Get down there.
