So I was in the area of MacArthur Park today, remembering there was a new place I wanted to try. Crispy School was in the back of my head since they had fried fish sandwich among other things. It’s a small place on the corner of 6th and Occidental. You’ll miss it if you’re heading west on 6th . It seems to be run by a nice Japanese couple (edit: My bad, they’re a Korean couple). The sandwich was a good size, unlike some recent monstrosities I’ve had. Even my favorite, the Phil Lee O Fish at HoneyBird is a bit on the big size and can be as bit soggy at the end. These filets however were covered in Panko and were crispy and tender to the last bite. The slight disappointment came from the fries being fried in-n-out style. The side of kale-apple slaw was good. There was not too much kale, though some might think it’s over dressed.
I’ll have to go back soon. I was so focused on the fish sandwich I didn’t notice things on the menu like the Sunnyburst sandwich which features a deep fried, runnny egg. Plus, there’s a Donkatsu sandwich which could be excellent.
