The first thing they put on the table were Johnny cakes with butter. They are like corn pancakes and crazy delicious!
Here's Pickle checking one out:
Though I think she preferred just eating the butter. Ew!
Oh, I forgot to mention that Batman was with us!
There's NO way this costume is going to make it to Halloween! He wears it every day!
There were lots of interesting things on the menu, so we decided to just order a bunch of stuff and share. OMG--fried green tomatoes! I think this might be my new addiction.
We sampled some fried plantains with rum sauce. Hello! Could anything be better?
Andy ate about three basketfuls (basketsful?--I don't know how to say that!) of the Johnny cakes! I think he has cow stomachs.
Next we tried some crawfish fritters. These were just a'ight for me--a little too fishy, but not bad.
Oh, I forgot to mention that this place was decorated in a really cool way--kind of like a bait shop! There were fish and fishing lures everywhere. I love old fishing lures.
And there was a neat window/mirror thing that I used to get some artsy pics:
OK back to the food. This was a Southern sampler of gumbo, jambalaya and red beans and rice. Really, really good--lots of sausage and chicken and seafood hiding in there!
And we got side orders of cheese grits and black-eyed peas. Pickle hit the grits pretty heavy!
Holy fried green tomatoes, Batman!!
Oh and I just had to try this drink: a fresh peach and pineapple colada. Wheeeeee!
I love me some Southern cookin'!! Come for the food..
...stay for the fiddlin' raccoon!
