We recently visited Eastside Fish in Nashville and had to agree that its fried-whiting sandwich with mustard, pickles, onions, and hot sauce was, as advertised, the Crunkest Fish in Town. Today, in honor of Lent, Midtown Lunch tries a fried-whiting sandwich right here in NYC at the Kims Aunt Kitchen Cart, and decides it easily bested all of the chains in terms of size, value, and taste. Well, duh but what about its crunkness? Meanwhile, heres an interesting fact about the Filet-O-Fish, care of McDonalds.
As part of the Lent season, McDonalds is offering a 2 for $3 deal on its famous Filet-O-Fish. The company sells about 300 million Filet of Fishes sandwiches annually, with 25% of those sales attributed to the 40-day Lenten period before Easter Sunday (4/12). Interestingly, the notion of giving up meat on Fridays is actually what produced the McDonald's Filet-O-Fish sandwich!
