Sole Meuniere from Fishermen's Wharf?
That was weird. I came back to Fishermen's Wharf today and ordered the sole meuniere (listed here as the "Lemon Sole Fillet") that I remember from the menu last time. It wasn't quite what I was expecting, as it was basically just battered deep fried fish with chips in a basket again. Sure, this is a fish and chips shop, but still, they made such a big fuss boasting about how these was meuniered that I was expecting the traditional light dusting of flour with a good amount of butter. Well, taste-wise, it was still edible, with an interesting little edge created by what seemed to be a healthy dose of white pepper. But was it worth more than two times the price of the cheapest Cream Dory? Not really (especially since one end of my fish turned out surprisingly dry).
Again, the portions being a bit small, I confess that I did order two baskets today, the other one being the cheaper Cream Dory, which also allowed me to reconfirm that this was the best of the bunch. That pretty much clears through through most of the menu here for me now, so I guess if I come back, it will still be for that Cream Dory. And in case you're wondering, no, I didn't finish that second basket. All of that fried stuff eventually got me feeling a bit sick, even though it was good going down.
