Man, was I craving chicken. I really didn’t know what kind of chicken I wanted, but I knew I wanted chicken.
I was sort of driving aimlessly down 28th Street when I remembered a small ‘you buy, we fry’ place near the intersection of 28th Street and Eastern. I assumed they had chicken as most of the places like that do really whole wings.
Atlantic Fish ‘n Fry isn’t a whole lot. It’s a waiting room with cases of fresh fish on ice and a small grocery section. The deal with these kind of places is that if they are classified as a market and not a restaurant, they can accept EBT. The grocery section only consists of condiments. There’s a lot of hot sauce.
There wasn’t a menu posted anywhere, but I saw what appeared to be a paper menu on top of one of the counters. I picked it up and found what I was looking for.
I ordered the 10 Piece Wing Meal which comes with fries, slaw, and bread. The bill was just a hair over $10 and I was told it would take about 15-18 minutes. I took a seat on one of the chairs along the wall and checked Twitter for the next 15 minutes.
I didn’t really keep track, but I didn’t seem to sit there for too long before I was handed a bag with my meal. I grabbed it and headed back to work to eat.
I started in on the fries right away. They were generic restaurant fries with a pretty salty seasoning salt that was actually quite delicious. I ate all the fries before I ever picked up a wing.
The wings were very tender and juicy. They were a little on the small side, but they just fell apart once they hit my mouth. The breading was golden brown crunchy and it held in the juices from the wings.
I don’t expect much from places like Atlantic Fish ‘n Fry. All I want is a good meal and that’s what I got from Atlantic Fish ‘n Fry.
