Arriving early for a tour of Samuel Adams Brewery, hungry and thirsty Bostonians might stumble across Star Fish Market, not far away. Lucky them.
If it happens to you, grab a shrimp seafood box ($5.99; $9/large), brimming with plump fried shrimp. No need for a napkin; these little guys leave behind no greasy trails, and Star Fish uses oils with no trans fats. Or try the fish-and-chips dinner ($5.75), a generous portion of buttery fried fish filets and French fries. Regulars on the go grab the fried-fish sandwich ($2.90), smothered in American cheese on whole-wheat bread; drizzle hot sauce over each filet for an extra kick. Getting full? Fight the urge to stop there by ordering the clam-strip dinner ($7.50) served with French fries. Or try the trio platter ($9.30), with heaps of fried fish, shrimp, clam strips, fries, and a side of cole slaw. If you’ve got any room left, head for the beer.
Star Fish Market, located at 3089 Washington Street, in Roxbury, is open Monday through Saturday, from 10 am to 7 pm. Call 617.524.8711.
