What a Catch at Jazzie Cafe
The tilapia poor boy ($5.99) at Jazzie Cafe (1221 W. 19th St., 713-426-5299) is hard to put down, so when the waitress asks if you want six inches or a foot, do yourself a favor and get the foot. Here, they use authentic poor boy bread, which is flaky on the outside and soft inside, slathering mayo on both sides and then forcing as many tilapia filets as possible into the sandwich. The fish is doused in Cajun seasonings and then sautéed, and shreds of lettuce, slices of tomato and pickle round out the rest of the fixings. All these flavors come together to make one memorable sandwich.
