Mississippi Fried Catfish Truck … and they have hush puppies

Krys | Apr 24, 200501:20 AM

The link below has events where you can find the Catfish Truck. They also have a sort of permanent home on San Pablo Avenue in Richmond on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The delicate fillets are coated in corn meal and cooked to order. They are almost greaseless and are crispy around the tails and outer edges. The piece I left in the fridge held the crispiness the next day. The fish itself was also fine and fresh tasting but they texture firmed up after refrigeration.

I am not a fan of catfish or cornmeal coated things, but I am a fan of this fried catfish. Orders require a little bit of a wait.

Needing to limit fried foods, I didn’t try the hush puppies. Also, I’ve never really had a good hush puppy yet and I’m no expert in this area.

Simple menu:

French Fries
Cole Slaw

They also sell boxes of catfish and bags of seafood and poultry breading mix

The takeout menu with various combos of the above items says:

“We serve only Simmons Farm Raised Catfish directly from Yazoo City, Mississippi”

The catfish is farm raised and grain-fed.

Here’s the San Pablo Location and hours

(In the vicinity of Home Depot, just beyond the bridge with the Richmond sign painted on it. It’s in the parking lot of an auto repair business, but they have signs on the side walk)

Ice cream trucks, taco trucks, BBQ trucks and now a catfish truck.
