While nowhere near top seller status, fast food fish sandwiches still do deserve recognition. Recently I sampled the Premium Fish Fillet Sandwich from Wendy’s.
While currently only available at select Wendy’s locations, I feel this fish sandwich deserves to be offered at every Wendy’s location. With Ash Wednesday now behind us, do not be surprised if you see fast food fish offerings (and possible deals on Fridays) spring up at many restaurants. Not to get all religious on the GrubGrade audience but if you didn’t know, Catholics abstain from eating meat on Friday’s during the season of Lent. Fish is accepted and has become a staple on the Friday’s leading up to Easter. So the fast food industry capitalizes on this. This fish sandwich is better than what I’ve come to expect from a fast food joint. It’s tasty, filling and doesn’t leave me wanting something extra.
Wendy’s Premium Fish Fillet Sandwich is billed as “Hand-cut fillets of North Pacific cod in a crisp Panko crumb breading, served with crisp lettuce and creamy tarter sauce on a warm bun.”
- Pros– Great corn dusted bun holds in everything nicely. More filling and better quality than the McDonalds Filet-O-Fish sandwich. Good crunch to the fish patty. Includes fresh lettuce and tasty tartar sauce.
- Cons– A bit pricey for the sandwich alone at $3.69. Although the tartar sauce is tasty, there was just too much of it (this obviously is expected to vary from experience to experience). Might be a little awkward/messy if you are eating on the go as the bun will shed it’s dust and you’re bound to stain something.
