East Side Fish
2617 Gallatin Pike
Jane and Michael claim the 'krunkest' (hottest, biggest and best) hot fish sandwich in town has to be the Giant King at East Side Fish. Two one-foot-long fillets of white fish are deep fried until they're crispy on the outside, then splashed with hot sauce and sandwiched between four slices of white bread. Michael says the fish is hot enough to 'slap yo' mama.' Don't go to East Side Fish if you're in a hurry. It takes a good 15 minutes to make that giant sandwich. And don't plan on lingering leisurely over your meal because there's only one table. Everyone eats in their car or takes their food home. One more thing ... the sinus-clearing hot wings are a must, too, if you dare.
