The delicate fish flavour made me realize how much the thicker, dryer batter overwhelmingly tastes like burnt nuts. I felt the moisture drain from my mouth with every bite, and my soul with every swallow.
In the name of science, I also ate a Filet-O-Fish. It confirmed why I love it so much… the soft, sweet, stick-to-your-teeth bun, the 1.5 slices of American cheese, the light, moist batter, and the perfect tarter-to-fish proportions. It’s the perfect fast-food sandwich.
