When I think of the Strip District, Pittsburgh’s premier produce and ethnic restaurant area, one of the first places that comes to mind is Wholey’s. It brings back memories of my father and I driving there to order his favorite – a huge fried fish fillet sandwich on a simple bun – which neither of us could ever finish. To this day, Wholey’s has not changed and does not disappoint. It offers one of the best brick and mortar fish markets you will find anywhere displaying an array of beautiful fresh and frozen fish. Wholey’s is pure Pittsburgh having celebrated its 100th in 2012. In 2008 they even checked IDs of any “suspicious” customers during that year’s Stanley Cup Finals between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Detroit Red Wings to ensure the hockey fans rooting for the “wrong” team could not purchase octopus. Throwing octopus on the ice is a long-standing Detroit superstition. Their online store provides you an outstanding assortment of both meat and seafood. They even offer free delivery to orders above $200 to selected States which can save you both time and money.
