I stopped by Soul Fish Cafe on Cooper around 12:30 this afternoon, thinking that I could beat most of the lunch rush. That didn’t quite work out the way I planned – the small cafe was completely packed. It didn’t take long to get seated, though.
Soul Fish has various kinds of catfish and chicken. There are baskets of catfish, sandwiches, salads, and a long list of side items that changes daily. I ordered the fried catfish tacos with a side of zucchini.
The tacos were full of strips of spicy fried catfish, lettuce, and pico de gallo. The tortillas folded up burrito-style, which made them easy to pick up and eat without them falling apart. They came with generous helpings of avocado and salsa.
The zucchini was warm, but not overcooked. There was still some crunch to it, and it was seasoned with salt and pepper.
Even though Soul Fish was crowded, the service was fast and efficient, but not rushed. People were getting seated quickly, and it didn’t take long to get my food.
Soul Fish is open daily for lunch and dinner. Check out the Soul Fish menu.
