EatLafayette Dish of the Day: Olde Tyme's fried catfish poboy

by Kari Walker

Grab this Friday special at everyone's favorite Saint Street sandwich stop

Olde Tyme Grocery knows a thing or two about what makes a poboy one of the best simple meals around: Put meat or seafood between two pieces of Langlinais French bread and consider yourself lucky to eat one of the best sandwiches around.

Aside from the everyday menu, Olde Tyme offers daily specials and today you've got to try the fried catfish poboy. The kitchen is cooking up two whole catfish fillets breaded in corn flour, fried to a golden crisp and served on French bread with mayo, ketchup, lettuce and tomato. On Fridays you can also order the fried seafood platter if the thought of just catfish wasn't enough of a taste of the waters for you.
