Fish Fry on a hotdog bun?

s

I grew up in the Albany NY area where they have restaurants that serve fried fish, I think it's cod, on a hot dog bun with tarter or chilli sauce. They call it a Fish Fry. It's a really nice piece of fish, in kind of a fried chicken batter, it's a heavier batter that sticks to the fish not like the airy English or tempura style batter. Anyone know where to get anything like this in LA.?

Thanks

    Fisherman's Outlet ... where you could get a deep-fried fish in a garlic roll in what can be best described as a west-coast version of a Fish Fry.

        Oh man, Fisherman's Outlet hit the spot. Got the Fish and Scallops plate and bought the hotdog buns myself. Oh man It really hit the spot. The Fish has a nice crunchy crust and is moist and tasty inside. I really like their tarter sauce and cocktail sauces as well. Definitely going back. Thanks Again.

            I didn't try the garlic roll, yet that is.

        I bet they'd do it for you at Fish King.

          But only if you bring your own hot dog bun?

            Last time I checked—and it HAS been a while—they had hot dog buns for lobster roll, or what they charitably call lobster roll. (The lobster is great; the lobster roll, not.)

          Try the one at P-Dogs in Paramount/South Gate. The last time I went there It was on the menu but they didn't have any fish. So I cant tell you positively that it 's what you want, but it may be close.
