Vallejo - Soultran's Seafood - "You buy, We Fry" ... specializing in crab feeds

This shop was mentioned in another post and this place deserves NOT to get buried, but get a little of its own glory ... and to tell you the truth, I didn't remember the mention when I turned around in a parking lot and noticed the store.

Here's Melanie's recent post where she said "Actually some of the best fried seafood I had in town came from Tran's"

It is just as Melanie described ... it a long counter of fresh fish that you can choose to have fried to order. No seating but at the back of the store is a counter with squeeze bottles of tartar and hot sauce. Hushpuppies are on the menu.

The empasis is on New Orleans style and the entire wall opposite the fish counter seems to have every fish-related New Orleans product ever thought of ... all sorts of bread crumbs and hot sauces. Frankly I was too dazzled to note many specifics.

That has a link to Melanie's first visit where she also mentions the products and the andouille sausage from Louisiana (two large coils, one hot and one mild). They had hot links too.

Lots of shrimp and beautiful looking crawdads. There were some cooked and labeled 'seafood delight' which looked ... delightful.

They are pretty busy and I had just eaten a major lunch down the street for #1.25 ... carnitas taco and all the fresh guacamole & hot chips you could eat.

But next time ... those sand dabs ($5.99 for fillets) were calling my name. I think I spotted pie on a shelf too.
