Whiting Sandwich at Chicken House

While walking down 8th Ave I needed to find lunch. Didn't feel like spending $9 at Pick a Pita, had enough pork this week so no GoGo Curry. Then I passed Chicken House, which I had heard of as a cheap and sketchy little spot, perfect. They fry things here including chicken, fish, shrimp, and fries. I got a whiting sandwich for $3.50. It didn't have too much flavor on its own but the tartar and hot sauce on the counter helped that out a bit. It wasn't dripping grease like I expected and the fish was respectfully moist. The guy behind the counter was really really nice. So for the price and the fast, pleasant service this is not a bad stop.

36th between 7th and 8th
