My attempt at Southern eating


Seeing as we're about to embark on our world travels in a mere 3 days, there's really a limited amount of things I could get The Dizz for his birthday. So, I bought him a new battery for his laptop {very romantic, I know} and I told him I would take him anywhere he wanted for din din.

He's never been to Georgia and wanted to have some good ol' Southern Cookin'. So I took him to South City Kitchen in Atlanta. It took him about 3 seconds to decide on the fried chicken.

Aaaannnddd now would be the part where I'd make an inappropriate joke about him being Black and liking fried chicken..........but, I'll refrain.

So anyway.

I'm really trying hard to be open-minded when it comes to new foods and not stick my nose up at foreign dishes. But when I took a look at the menu and saw "Shrimp & Mussels" and "Pan-Roasted Duck Breast," I panicked a little.

So we compromised.

I got the filet mignon {amazing} and then we ordered the fried green tomatoes so I could at least say I had something southern.

Verdict? Not bad. I ate an entire tomato. And knowing me, that's quite a feat, thankyouverymuch.

Hope ya'll are havin' yourselves a great Thursdee. <--- See? I'm basically a Southern Belle.

  6. Ha, your "Thursdee" cracked me up. I'm from a ridiculously Southern family {TN, born and raised} and my grandparents and dad still say Sundee, Mondee, Tuesdee, etc. It's hilarious and adorable and mind-boggling to anyone not from 'round these parts :)

    P.S. ~ Pack me in your suitcase. I want to travel the world!

  15. Oh yummm making me hungry now. My last southern experience was in South Carolina and they brought out fried dough before dinner and I'm like um excuse me can we get some bread and EVOO/Balsamic over here? They don't really do that there. Bread must be fried.

  19. Haha! I had the same reaction when I went to a similar restaurant with some friends. The guys in the group convinced us girls to order some frog legs. As usual, I had my husband taste it first. I ate one just to say I did. Not bad, but I couldn't get past the whole Kermit thing.

  23. I woulda ordered the fried chicken too! Looks more like tenders though, haha. And good for you for trying the fried green tomatoes! I'm surprised you aren't more adventurous! Please try to be in a foreign land. Maybe don't ask what it is before eating it :D

  25. I had a fried green tomato grilled cheese out of a food truck a few months ago. Not bad at all. ;)
    Duck is good! So are muscles! When you are in Spain, just eat all the tapas and you'll be happy. :)
