Ted's Fish Fry -- Albany area very good fast food

At the suggestion of a New England board poster we tried Ted's Fish Fry and were very pleased indeed. We went to the Latham, NY location, one of four in the Albany area (two in North Troy and one other in Watervliet).

Jill and I both had the "Fish Fry", an almost foot-long, two-inch-thick, piece of haddock (I think), lightly breaded and fried to flakey and greaseless perfection. The fish is served in a hotdog bun and topped with a piquant but mildly spiced "chili sauce," all for $3.25. Jonas, our not-very-chowish (yet!) seven-year-old, had a hamburger which was most notable for having been cooked to order, as is everything here.

We also tried the cole slaw and the onion rings. The slaw was a finely chopped collection of cabbage and carrots, with hints of green bell pepper and lots of fresh parsley. It was all lightly dressed in mayonnaise and vinegar, and fresh enough that the colors were still vibrant and the texture crunchy. The rings were almost greaseless, very tasty, and a small order was enough for the three of us.

We plan to stop at Ted's almost every time we pass this way. Almost because we also want to check out the Latham Biryani restaurant next door.
