Welcome back to the third course of the food show. Here on the -- 870 WWL and WWO 105 point three FM this is Tom Fitzmorris a yet. Passing is a cultured person. And every afternoon. A week coming to your life except on Sundays we talk about food. During most of the week it's on thirteen fifty our other station. On Saturdays when there's nothing going on and we're getting into that time of year. They allow me to come in and then have this delightful conversation about eating and drinking and restaurants and cooking. I would love to talk with you. 2601872601870. That is our number. We'd love to hear from you about wherever it is that you have been lately 260 when he sent me looking to. -- cute cute cute cute did you see. Cold weather -- there was still eating cold weather kind of things. It. There was a restaurant that I've been to a number of times in the last few weeks. On veterans highway while working -- the writing the review applies it to a restaurant called. Oh gosh now camping but. Something kitchen it's of -- on the -- -- anyway. It's because I'm trying to think of that so hard part. Well it doesn't matter. They had a couple of weeks ago went in there legacy that's it is soon as they stop thinking about it that the legacy kitchen. So on veterans highway it's where the Shoney's used to be right across the highway from door -- -- to really nice looking plays very comfortable nice service staff. And the first time I went ahead the best meal I've had. On their soup of the day was. Turtle soup which you don't find too often as soon. There's a soup of the day investments usually it's either on the menu or it's not but it will anyway they had it and it was very good. And they followed it with a dish that was a little too similar to turtle soup but I couldn't resist it was a a chilly. Made a chili con Carney with beans. So I know some people would say that putting -- and chilies is just horrible thing that you would never do. But. The chili with beans and duck -- had been made -- duck and I thought this is pretty great. And they thought this place is got a little bit more on the ball than I thought it did cause. The people who -- it also -- the New Orleans hamburger and seafood company Red Cross streets. But they were moving up to a conflict and another level of harassment they have hamburgers and have salads and anyway that was great so I went back again. About a week later. Now two weeks and I had another meal. That was not anywhere near -- it it was a it was did -- start off with. But caiso -- that a that was just OK. And and you know entry would lose one. Wanted to left quite old daughter I do remember it was a piece of fish with. I think -- was crab meat on and it was Susan do you basic New Orleans style piece of grilled broiled fish it was okay -- system. And I went there again yesterday and I had a dish that I have been resisting. Trying anywhere -- it sounds so. Either so gooders so dumb I can't make up my mind I think I'm gonna go -- -- Chicken and waffles fried chicken on waffles. Here's my theory about that. I think the only relief this is catching on across America by the way everywhere you go somebody -- chicken and waffles we have about maybe twenty or thirty places doing -- -- Wallace. You'll love fried chicken I love fried chicken. Good fried chicken can't be beat. It has been largely ruined by the fast food places because fried chicken used to be something that took a lot of care it took a lot of time you know he -- starting from. Raw chicken to fried chicken is like 25 minutes. And does so we all love fried chicken and I certainly do. And we all love waffles. And I do I make him at home pretty often waffle iron real good when its stood stood by me well and I. Have a great recipes for waffles. And I like waffles. But I don't like either one of them enough and I suspect that a lot of people like that. That I get them very often. In each of them the fried chicken and the waffles. Just needed a little push. From something. A little force behind him to make it become a great well very popular -- -- a lot of great pitch. And that is what has happened that's why we're seeing chicken and waffles you hear that the words and you say. Why you don't -- that's pretty good. It is not pretty good it's not good at all. And that's the -- -- talking. Maple syrup with pepper jelly stirred into it bacon bits in the waffled. Fried chicken infect the chicken was that they they do half they do -- chicken there if you want they have a couple of different ways you can get that. But this is basically chicken tenders. And fry it in the it was pretty good and the waffles were pretty good the two things together. I do would not get it at all does anyone understand why. You would ever want to have chicken and waffles. Somebody tell me that. EXEU witching we need to break OK we'll take a break come back with more of the food joint the first police threatened. To do to to duke duke duke duke -- pop up -- up. Hello hello it's the food show misses the big age seventy WW Alan WWO 105 point three FM and here is Rosemary hello. Are you I'm doing great you.

And they do all kinds of stuff like that so if you have an event coming up and you need a little help with the food.

So it's comes out on a big wooden board and you have all these different kinds of meats cheeses that they do make in house. On the menu is a little peculiar most of the dishes is a seemed to be less than an appetite and an entree size is an effect I think there's really only elect who. Entrees on the whole menu. And everything else is like small courses of pasta they make their own pizza obviously and competes. And then they have four you know bunch of other things sausages in the fish it's an interesting assortment of but have very unusual menu it's it's quite good though the the two people who own that.
