Sushi & fried chicken doesn’t exactly sound like a traditional surf & turf combo, but it’s what this fluorescent, fish-tanked Mississippi spot puts front and center. There are some contrasts between the raw fish and the fried bird, the latter of which is pretty straightforward, but with a hint of ginger manages to give off a burnt taste. The chunks, however, are enormous, even if the half-bird’s pieces tend to vary from juicy to dry. That’s what the sake’s for.
A wholesome little soul food spot that you can feel good about supporting (it’s run by a church!), PoShines does wonderful things with everything from catfish to ribs. The fried chicken, however, can be inconsistent. A recent visit to satisfy a craving found the chunks to be impossibly soft, as if they had been slow cooked before frying. The result was fall-off-the-bone tender, which isn’t a bad thing for ribs. For fried chicken, it’s a recipe for a dry-cleaning bill. Still tastes great though!
