Capital Seafood (1304 University Dr) sells lots of fresh underwater creatures and also deliciously fries some of them up for you.
The grill menu also includes some traditional soul food entrees and sides. When we went, not everything was available (it seemed the owner and/or cook had had some kind of personal emergency making him run late) but what we had made me more than willing to go back later to try some pork chops and turnip greens. This time, we got a lot of fried goodness.
The lunch specials come with two sides, hushpuppies, and tea (sweet, of course). My personal favorite part were the hushpuppies, which were, I thought, the exact right consistency and greasiness. We also got fried whiting, fried shrimp, fries, and rice & gravy. Proving I’m not just a complete sucker for anything fried, I didn’t really dig the fries (they seemed generic and frozen), but everything else was good, fresh, and flavorful.1304 University Dr Market: 9a – 6p Mon-Sat (7p on Fri)
