Comment: It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Borland’s in Belleville…obviously too long. A lot has changed since 2009 - the dusty deer heads not the least among them, but a lot has stayed the same - namely the outstanding Fish Fry.
I got the “Double Fish” and it was double delicious. The cod fillets were moist and flaky, and kissed by a delightfully crispy and extremely flavorful breading. It was damn near perfect and I had no problem putting away all six pieces.
The fish paired so well with their ultra-thick tartar that it was almost criminal. It’s a match made in heaven with the pleasant pop from the tartar taking that well-seasoned breading to places neither could reach on their own.
The fries were pretty plain, the (practically) minced slaw didn’t look the best, but tasted great, and my double bread did the deed.
Borland’s morphed into a St. Loius Cardinals bar at some point and lost a bit of that old school tavern charm because of it, but (as a Brewers fan) I won’t hold it against them. 😜 It’s still a great place and, judging by the clientele, still a Belleville institution.Overall, I’d highly recommend this Fish Fry and will definitely be back to ring the Belle real soon.
