Friday’s Fast-Food Fishtacular! – The Sea Dog

March 27, 2010

For the next few Fridays, I’m going to review fish sandwiches from various fast food chains. Seems that everyone loves comparing burgers, fries and shakes. I figure it’s time we shed some light on our fishy friends. Just so you know, this isn’t a Catholic/Lent thing. It’s a “Wha–? They sell fish at Wienerschnitzel?” thing.

The Sea Dog

For less than two bucks you can get a fish “sandwich” at Wienerschnitzel. I put “sandwich” in quotes because it’s really just a hot dog with a long plank of fried fish and iceberg lettuce where the frankfurter should be. GENIUS! The only thing that kind of freaked me out about it was their tartar sauce. It’s a semi-translucent goo with bits of pickle and onion. It looked more like snot, or when you leave the mayo out all day. I like my tartar to be as opaque as ice cream.

The whole thing tasted fine, though. The soft bun makes you think you’re having a hot dog but instead, fish! The fish itself was tasty, if unremarkable. I wonder if it would’ve tasted better with a splash of malt vinegar?

Wienerschnitzel also has a Fish and Chips and a Fish Wrap as part of their “UnDer the Sea Trio,” and both are more expensive than the Sea Dog. I haven’t tried either of them, but I’m curious about the Fish Wrap… will it taste like the morning newspaper? Mmm… tribune-y!
