The "soul" in the title isn't misleading, but it's worth noting that the food at the mini-chain's darker, cozier, original location is as carefully thought-out as it is deeply felt. Catfish and po'boys will satisfy no matter who's in the kitchen: The fried catfish bears a perfect ratio of juiciness to crunch, and the po'boy dribbles onto your shirt the exact amount of horseradish mayo the cooks intended. The cornbread, made by the Gypsy Den next door, packs an irresistibly crumbly sweetness. If there's a special that sounds good, order it. The minds behind Memphis have figured out that that if they keep the best stuff limited-time-only, curiosity will keep you coming back-not that you wouldn't do so whenever a cornbread craving strikes.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken served with mashed potatoes, mustard greens, and surrounded by andouille country gravy. I have heard tales of this famous fried chicken and am honored to have finally tried it. The coating was perfect. The collard greens were the best I’ve ever had with a slight sweet flavor. The country gravy was creamy, buttery, and added a nice touch to the mashed potatoes and chicken. The gravy would also be good on buttermilk biscuits! Thumbs up, way up!
Pumpkin Chocolate Bread Pudding was custardy with a melty chocolate goodness. The crème anglais was fantastic by a adding a velvety, creamy blanket of flavor to the bread pudding. It’s been a long time since I’ve had bread pudding this good. Thumbs up, way up!
