Pasadena Fish Market
A few days ago I took Elizabeth's car to get new brake pads and by the time I finished I was almost painfully hungry, one of those hungers where you would eat anything but at the same time nothing sounds good to you because you want that perfect food. I heard an ad on the radio for Popeyes butterfly shrimp and that sounded good so I started to drive to Popeyes, but then I had a better idea: Why not hit up Pasadena Fish Market for some catfish? I've heard that the catfish there is fantastic.
There were no other customers when I arrived. I ordered the lunch portion of the catfish strips - they also have catfish steaks and fillets - with fries and cole slaw. The man took out a handful of fresh, white strips of catfish and placed it on the scale: .49 pounds. He took it in the back, breaded it and dropped it in the fryer. I few minutes later I had my styrofoam container and took it out to the car to eat.
I liked the catfish even better than the shrimp at Pasadena Fish Market, so I will definitely be back to try some other items. I'm thinking next up will be the orange roughy or the sandabs.
