"Greedy Girl Eats"
Growing up this was the seafood spot we were most acquainted with and knew very well. As a matter of fact it was here that I first fell in love with escovitch fish. We always stopped here on our way to the beach. Border is known for two things Fried fish and bammy. The only other things sold here is soup and maybe festivals (if your lucky) But fish and bammy are the two main items on the list here. Lets see how their escovitch fish rated.
Escovitch fish is really just a well-seasoned fish fried crispy and topped with a spicy pickle sauce. The sauce is full of vinegar, onions, pimento, hot peppers and carrots. This sauce can be made and left to soak for months, even years and still be delicious. The longer it soaks the better the flavor.
The eight spot I will review is Border .
Seasoning: 9.5 Seasoned exceptionally well!
Consistency: 9 As long as you get fresh fish from the right seller its consistent.
Pickle: 10 The best escovitch pickle in all the land. The onions are perfectly crunchy yet fully soaked in the vinegar and pepper sauce.
Crispiness: 8 Fish was relatively crispy .
Fish freshness: 10 Nice fresh tender fish
Total score 46.5/50 or 93%

- You can buy from the sellers at your window if you like, especially for the bammy. but for the fish I recommend getting out of the car and getting some fresh fish right out the fryer.
