Thick-Cut Fried Catfish @ Middendorf’s
The controversy has gone on for many decades: which is better, the thick fish at Middendorf’s, or the thin? I say the thick, because it’s about as thick as I remember the thin fish being when I first started eating there. The important thing is that all the catfish here comes from smaller fish, which for catfish is a very good thing. I wish they made better hush puppies.
In other Middendorf’s news, the disastrous floods in the Baton Rouge area affected Middendorf’s, too–but not nearly as badly. They are back open again, and talking about raising several of their buildings even higher than they already are.
