What do you get when you put a funky restaurant in one of Charlotte’s hottest neighborhoods and fill it with the most random decorations and an ever changing menu… you get Krazy Fish.
On our waitress’ recommendation we started off the night with an order of wings. When they came out ours eyes were like.. Whoa! and after the first bite our tastebuds had plenty of questions. They were juicy on the inside but kinda dry rubbed with spices on the outside. They were a little sweet, a little spicy, a lot of messy… and some of the best wings we’ve ever had the pleasure of demolishing :)
It didn’t take us but a few short minutes to turn that gorgeous plate of wings into a pile of bones.
Next we got the Three Little Pigs BBQ Sandwich topped with slaw and blueberry tamarind chutney with some potato salad on the side. The potato salad was forgettable but the pulled pork and blueberry chutney was amazing.
I’d suggest swapping out the bread for something less dense and overpowering but overall this dish gets a recommend :)
Ella ordered the Brisket tacos with cheddar cheese and salsa verde.
The Brisket was tender and full of flavor, it was loaded with gooey cheddar cheese and the salsa verde added the perfect hint of spice. The only thing this taco needed was a dallop of sour cream… perhaps a dallop of daisy :)
The black-eyed pea salad is probably one of the best we’ve ever come across and on our top ten list of favorite foodie menu items :)
The chipotle beef tacos were made with Korean bulgogi beef, topped with a salsa de arbol, and wrapped in corn tortillas.
Despite Krazy Fish not being a Mexican restaurant… these bulgogi beef tacos were probably some of the best we have ever sank our teeth into.
The macaroni was oven baked and as fresh as homemade can get.
The blackened tuna tacos came with an Asian slaw and pineapple salsa.
They were a little too blackened for Ella’s palate but the slaw cooled it down a little and we still easily recommend it for the average person.
The jalapeño cheddar cheese grits soufflé was great… according to me, but Ella said she’s had better.
We also got the southern fried fish wrapped in flour tortillas with a “Pink Gold sauce” and slaw. The fish was fried perfectly and was well balanced by the crunchy slaw. The best part of this taco though was the pink gold sauce, i just wished it had about a gallon more.
And last but not least… the cuban chicken tacos with corn tortillas and salsa verde. Not real heavy on the spicy cuban flavor but still enough to make us smile.
Its not often we get to add a restaurant to our favorites list.. but Krazy fish definitely deserves the honor. They have great food, a great staff, budget friendly pricing, and oh yeah… did we mention GREAT FOOD!!!!
