Never mess with Teds Fish Fry

Here’s what I learned about Albany today.

Never mess with Ted’s Fish Fry

I am from Western New York. Fish fry is something you do on Friday nights. it’s a full filet of haddock beer battered and fried with french fries coleslaw and some hush puppies if ya fancy

usually served at a family restaurant or bar and it’s delicious.

Today I saw a commercial for Ted’s Fish Fry which I have seen and heard about several times but not actually been yet.

They were calling this a fish fry.

I posted to the 518 foodies group on Facebook “why is the fish cut into strips and on a bun” and holy hell broke loose.

In the Caribbean they fry the entire fish and also call it a fish fry but it isn’t. That’s called Fry Fish.

Fish and chips is fish cut into strips served with french fries and mushy peas traditionally in newspaper.

These are fish sandwiches. And after all this banter I broke down and went and got myself one from the Watervliet location.

When I asked them the same question they said what I want is called the fish dinner platter.

Moral of the story is it isn’t a fish fry .....

it’s at Ted’s Fish Fry and it’s excellent.
