My niece Brittany who lives in Winter Park turned me on to the Winter Park Fish Company, which is a place to get really “fresh” seafood and lots of it to fill you to the gills. While it is a hole-in-the-wall with limited seating inside and out – I highly recommend this hideaway if you like the taste of really good seafood prepared well, especially if you are in the area.
They immediately bring to your table a fresh tuna salad with Ritz crackers – it is definitely not from a can and nowhere near the recipe our mom’s made for school lunches.
Of course, I ordered a number of items for I have to do proper research for our loyal readers. The fried shrimp, scallop and fish platter is abundant, served with fritters, fries, and slaw, and was all perfectly cooked. The grilled grouper tacos were awesome, as was the seared ahi tuna salad plate. They have a wide array of offerings that I can’t wait to try on my next visit – and even have a counter where you can buy fresh raw seafood to take home.
Wait!!! Did I mention desserts? For a hole-in-the-wall, they know how to do desserts…which are all homemade and delicious. My fave was the brownie covered in warm caramel and topped with vanilla ice cream. I’d go there just for that. Decadent.
