Best catfish poboy

In the thread on Parasol's somebody offhandedly mentioned that Guy's has the best catfish poboys. Well, I've had a catfish poboy at Guy's, and it was indeed very good. But the best catfish poboy I've had in New Orleans is, surprisingly, at Zara's on Prytania. The fish was perfectly fried and seasoned, the bread was wonderfully fresh and chewy, and the whole sandwich eating experience was simply transcendent. I was surprised to get such a good sandwich at Zara's since their roast beef poboy is mediocre to bad. But the catfish is out of this world. I'm starting to realize that there is an awfully lot of good food to be found at grocery stores and convenience stores in this city.

Any challengers for best catfish poboy in New Orleans?
