RE: The most unusual restaurant?
Believe it or not, I have run into similar places in Alabama. About 75 miles west of Montgomery, I came across a place next to a catfish pond. The gentleman caught the fish, filet it and fried it while you watched. Talk about fresh! I somewhat questioned the hygiene but I guess it was fried at around 350F. Probably killed any rascals that was lurking.
Incidentally he used White Lilly flour, salt, pepper, red pepper and garlic powder and fried the fish in pork lard that he indicated he had rendered.
