Buttermilk Fried Oysters & Waffle at Jax Fish House & Oyster Bar
By Sarah Gish and Andrea Shores
On those Sunday mornings (or afternoons) when you’re almost too hungover to go to brunch, consider going to Jax Fish House for the Buttermilk Fried Oysters & Waffle.
The $14 dish — which can be ordered with chicken for $12 — pairs a bacon-flecked waffle with buttermilk battered and fried oysters. Andouille sausage gravy and a drizzle of red hot maple butter made with Frank’s RedHot sauce, maple syrup, butter and bourbon adds extra layers of decadence.
A light and bright slaw made with cabbage, carrots and onions is the ultimate foil to all that richness.
Jax Fish House serves brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays. — S.G.
