Is there a really good cornmeal-fried catfish in the Los Angeles area but not the Gumbo Pot?

    Uncle Darrow's in Marina Del Rey has pretty good cornmeal-fried catfish.

        +1 Flossie's, but it's hard not ordering the fried chicken there...

          agree. Great Fried Chicken and Ox-tail on weekends.

              Mel's fish shack on Jefferson at Farmdale. They were the first place I have ever been to which asked me how I wanted it fried, soft medium or hard. It was delicious.

                  Had a nice one at Hart and The Hunter although their menu changes frequently and I went a few weeks ago so not sure if they still have it.
