Last time we did a viewing at Southport Grocery & Cafe, it was of a gorgeous biscotti on a cup of coffee. Well, we’re upping the ante a bit with this walleye pike sandwich, added to the menu just a few weeks ago (it replaced the cod). The pike is seared, and served on toasted challah with tomato and cabbage slaw, and it goes for $10. Clearly they’re not skimping on the fish, which looks tender, flaky, juicy and crispy all at once. The bacon appears to be of optimal thickness, texture and color. The slaw adds the fourth and final crunch, this time of pickled vegetable. The tomato will lighten things on the palette a bit, and the creamy mayonnaise ties all the ingredients together. Simply marvelous, isn’t it?
