Welcome to the third installment of the Lent blogs! So far I have given you 2 great bars to get great fish sandwiches from. This week you have got to step your game up a little, because you have to try Mitchell’s Fish Market at The Waterfront! The Fish Market is probably the best restaurant you can go to in the waterfront. The last 2 locations I have given you are just bars, and you know you are in a bar, the Fish Market is a nice change of pace. The atmosphere inside is very relaxed and comforting, and should be the type of place you want to go to when you want a nice meal.
Panko Breaded Fish Sandwich: Served on a white cheddar pretzel bun with a mustard remoulade, coleslaw and sea salt french fries – This was the lunch special last Friday when I stopped by, and luckily was still available when I got to the restaurant for dinner. I’m not a fan of coleslaw so I skipped over that, but the fries on the side were crisp and perfectly cooked. The fish was light, which the panko breading helped out with, and had a great texture and taste that was accented with the mustard remoulade. I think the white cheddar pretzel bun was paired with this sandwich just for fun. The fish itself makes this a great sandwich, but the pretzel bun just created an enhanced flavor and experience while eating this sandwich.
Another favorite I have at the Fish Market is the colossal shrimp cocktail w/ horseradish cocktail sauce. I have a few shrimp items that I like to eat at the fish market, but this shrimp cocktail is far and beyond the best I have ever had. Now, my favorite dish of all time at the Fish Market is the Kung Pao Calamari! This appetizer is a meal in itself! The calamari is fried to perfection and what makes this dish stand out is the Kung Pao dipping sauce on the side. I guarantee the Kung Pao Calamari will be a favorite of yours as well!!
If you have a bit of a sweet tooth after your meal, a must have is the Sharkfin Pie! It is butter fudge ice cream, honey roasted peanuts, fudge, peanut butter, and an Oreo cookie crust! It is such a big dessert that you will want to share, especially if you and your better half are having a nice evening out.
