A good pop-up simply serves food - a great one feels like you’ve been let in on a secret. Little Fish is the latter. The Echo Park shop typically operates out of a house on the weekends, where you’ll be handed a can of beer on arrival. There’s a fun, sunny atmosphere here, as if cool kids personally invited you to a party - and unlike this scene in Eighth Grade, actually want you there. Then there’s the fried fish sandwich. Golden-brown color and served on a white, fluffy bun, it’s like McDonald’s’ Filet-O-Fish, but the one they promise you in TV commercials. The fish itself is wonderfully crispy (it’s beer-battered then fried, not breaded), which makes for an almost-airy texture. There’s a tangy Kewpie mayo/pickle combo that clings to the bun, and serves as the perfect compliment to an otherwise salty sandwich. Plus, each box only costs $20-$25 and comes with a hefty portion of pasta salad and a bag of Zapps New Orlean-style kettle chips - and might just be one of the best deals in town. Pre-orders are usually required, but keep an eye on their Instagram for all the latest updates.
