Comment: Some traditions suck and you just do them because you’ve always done them. This tradition is the exact opposite. It’s my yearly pilgrimage to Mankato for the St. Patty’s weekend hockey tournament with the boys which comes with a stop at Red Pines in Onalaska on the way. I always get the perch at the Pines and this plate bordered on perfection (or should I say Perch-fection?). The real yellow perch fillets were kissed with a super-crunchy-fried-chicken-like breading that made the delicate meat so much more. The plain-looking fries had some wonderful curly fry style seasoning on them, the tartar was beautifully big and bold, and the slaw had a nice vinegar punch without making you pucker up. Everything was in perfect balance which only makes me want to keep this tradition alive more and more! Overall, just fantastic. Nothing more needs to be said.
