Hoo-ray for Ed's Fish House
I first told AMGE readers about Ed's Fish House back in 2007. Here's a bit of what I said:
My favorite hot fish joint is Ed's Fish House in Priest Lake. Ed's does business out of a trailer in the Compton's Foodland parking lot (Smith Springs Road, 'bout a mile and a half south of Bell Road). Ed has been selling fried fish out of his little trailer for over 25 years. That says a lot about the quality of his food.
Ed's fish sandwiches are truly two-hand sandwiches. That is, you'll be using both hands from bite one until all you have left are crumbs. (I guess you could cut the sandwich half, or into quarters, but that's not really a manly thing to do.) The cornmeal Ed uses gives the fish a terrific crunch, and he tops the fish with just enough "stuff" on top to enhance, rather than overpower, the crispy fish underneath.
If you've never had a hot fish sandwich, you can't go wrong by heading to Ed's Fish House for your first.
I'm pleased to announce that Ed is now serving plate lunches and chicken wings. I've yet to have anything from Ed's other than hot fish. However, if his plate lunches and wings are only half as good as his fish sammiches, well, they're pretty damn good.
