Something You Should Eat: fried shrimp from Snappy's

July 20, 2010

There are several fried shrimp houses scattered around the city, but for my money, I usually head up to North Center, near the Irving Rd./Lincoln Ave. intersection, and get a pound of fried beauties from Snappy's. Despite the oil spill in the Gulf, the owner says he's been relying on stockpiles of shrimp he froze ahead of the spill. He did say those supplies, however, are dwindling, so best to visit sooner rather than later.
