Its not really fair comparing a church fish fry to trained professionals, but dems da breaks, we're gonna do it anyhow. We've been wanting to try the fish at Bayou Fish House since they've opened and haven't had a chance until now. The place flies below the radar a little on York St, its easy to miss unless you're looking for it.
Last Friday was an odd night, way to many things going on and the normal fish fry group split up and kind of went their own ways. Or we did at least.
So Bayou, the fish was excellent, super crunchy crust and tender inside, very flavorful. Same with the french fries, they were lightly battered then deep fried to perfection. And I mean perfection, these will probably be the best fries you eat anywhere. The rest of the sides were all up to the same standards. The gumbo was spicy. The Bayou bites, battered jalepeño rings were tangy without becoming over powering. Ms 5chw4r7z loved the mac&cheese bites. The cole slaw wasn't the traditional creamy slaw but I was digging the subtle vinegar taste.
I gave Bayou a 4.5 which actually if Mary Queen of Heaven got a 4.5 maybe Bayou should be a 4.75. Its as good as it gets.
