Fatty 'Cue's Fried Oyster Roll

Fatty 'Cue's Fried Oyster Roll
Alexia Nader

Fatty 'Cue's new lunch menu will surprise fans of the restaurant's porky signature dinner dishes. The best things on it are not the meaty mains -- quarter-pound deep-fried bacon, pork ribs, and fried chicken -- which are better saved for a time when you can lay undisturbed in a food coma for hours after your meal. Rather, the sandwiches, served with a pile of sweet pickles and decent homemade potato chips, are the standout options. Substantial and slightly greasy but still light enough for afternoon eating, the fried oyster roll ($13) is the best of the lot.

For the sandwich, a handful of seriously plump oysters, breaded lightly and fried to order, are piled atop a thick slice of buttery Texas toast. Cabbage kimchi, slender slices of cucumber, and a few sprigs of cilantro brighten up the fried ingredients, forming a juicy sandwich that's messy to eat but worth the trouble.
