    I prefer a nice beer battered fish. My dad would always bring home H. Salt on Fridays for dinner.

    Absolutely nothing compares to spending the night catching rainbow trout, catfish, and bass all night on the boat, casting ashore at the ass-crack of dawn the next morning, and cooking the night's catch for breakfast in a great cornmeal/pepper fry breading on a portable grill on the back of a pickup truck.

    Damn, I miss South Carolina...

    ^^^Fried catfish/trout for breakfast? This is a new one. Anyway, I did go to the Golden Bird ( as recommended ) and had my fried chicken fix. It was good and may take a while before I have cravings for it. By the way, they also offered fried catfish w/ hush puppies at this place.

    Fried chicken is one of those foods that I rarely eat. However, when I do eat it, I always think "damn, this is pretty good".

    A "southern belle" I know told me that the chicken has to be soaked in buttermilk to make really good fried chicken. I've never tried cooking fried chicken, so hell if I know whether that is true or not. Seems like buttermilk is used a lot in southern food.

    As for fried fish, one time we ran out of breading, so we used crushed up pretzels to bread some walleye. WOW was that good. I highly recommend it. I have almost used it a few times on normal breaded things, but then I think "hmm, this probably won't compare to fresh from the lake walleye".

    no the caloric intake from one piece is enough to scare me away from it.

    Hell, yes. I don't make it often as I don't like it all that much, but that's how you do it. Soak it in buttermilk overnight, or for a few hours. Then, take it out, let the excess drip off, and dip the entire piece in Frank's Red Hot or some other similar red hot sauce. Then into flour, then egg wash, then into seasoned flour w/ pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper. So moist and yummo.

    +1 Cluck U Fried Chicken... it used to be a rougher neighborhood than it is now.

    Aww, I remember Cluck U. Visiting my friend at Howard at 3 in the morning, running in to grab some chicken, and then running the fuck out. Always getting some lemonade to go wif it.

    So today I ordered a bucket of fried chicken from KFC, put it atop some homemade waffles and glazed that mess in syrup. My hand was shaking from the artery-clogging goodness.

    ^^ The last time I had KFC was a year ago, last summer. I had the original recipe and it's not the same KFC I used to eat when it was the real McCoy.

    aaah good 'ol cluck U. I mostly go there for the hot wings.

    Anyway, I don't think anyone dislikes fried chicken. it's definitely one of my favorite meals, and I don't mind that it's unhealthy because i'm pretty skinny

    ^^ Well, I was doing my homework and this is one showed up. Good guess on your part. It's in south central L.A., you remember, the L.A. riots. Is it worth risking my life???!!!

    You might get hassled by some hookers.

    Oh goddddd I love fried chicken. Can't resist it whenever I pass, doesn't matter where from. The only reason I work out and am crazily active is so that I can consume whatever I want, whenever I want.
