A Caribbean takeout spot called Captain Fish ’n’ Chip turns out the best fried fish in its corner of Long Island, cnut reports. The people’s choice appears to be whiting, “ultra-cheap and ultra-fresh.” Or, for under $6, try a sandwich of flounder or catfish—two generous fillets in white bread, which you may spike with hot sauce or jerk sauce. Beyond the fryer, cnut adds, expect good curries served with hit-or-miss rotis.
