Can we discuss corn for a minute? I know, it’s super random. But it’s so necessary! Let me tell you…this is not your ordinary corn. This is fried corn on the cob straight from Saw’s Soul Kitchen in Avondale (Birmingham, AL)! The day I saw this deliciousness float through my timeline, I knew I had to make my way to Saw’s STAT! It was a Super Soul Sunday with friends. We were at least 10 deep at our table, but it didn’t matter; because I was going to taste this corn even if I had to stand with plate in hand.
I was so happy that the fried corn was still on the menu (i.e., not sold out). Just so you know, this place stays packed because the food is just that good! It was hot as you know what that day…and I didn’t care! As I waited for my meal to arrive to my table, I sat cramped on a picnic bench like it was lunchtime at Point Mallard during a church summer trip circa 1987.
Saw’s fried corn on the cob is topped with BBQ butter and white sauce! My Word! I really don’t know how to describe it other than AH-MAZING! The fried whole okra is pretty awesome, too! And the Sweet Tea Fried Chicken Sandwich is one of my favorites! Annnnnd….the smoked wings, of course! OK…everything is good! Not even kidding. Didn’t I tell you that Birmingham is a Food Mecca? I tell no lies.
Some things are just too good to keep to yourself, so I had to share! Oh, how I wish this would be a staple year round. Avondale is a place for premiere entertainment in our city with lots to do. Whatever you do…make sure you stop by Saw’s Soul Kitchen to get a taste of Soul in Birmingham!
Have you ever had fried corn on the cob? I bet it didn’t taste like this!
OK, so I really hadn’t planned on it, but since we’re here…and it’s Friday…why not! I’ve been going through a transition period and I’m finally to a point where I actually feel like blogging again. It’s been a process, but I’m here. If you know me then you know that I love to take pictures…random […]
It has been a while since I shared about the deliciousness that is Birmingham Eat! Last year, you may recall, l attended a Pop-Up Event (here in the Magic City) where I was first introduced to the Nashville favorite, Hot Chicken. You can read about my hot chicken experience here. You may also remember when […]
I know you all have been wondering where I’ve been over the past few months. This is, by far, the hardest post I’ve ever had to write. I had a major life change. My beautiful Mother went home to be with the Lord and it still seems so unreal. If you’re like me, you believe […]
I went through my old posts today having moments of reflection. All the way back to my first draft and published post on May 4, 2011. I still can’t believe it has been Five Years! I laughed at how far I have come as a blogger, writer, and a “photographer”. *whew* cell phone picture quality […]
I seriously can’t even! I can’t believe this is real!!! I am featured in the May/June issue of Weight Watchers magazine! It was so hard to keep this a secret, but it was so worth the wait! After completing four full marathons and six half marathons last year, I’m so grateful to be part of […]
Veggies over everything! At least that’s what I try to tell myself DAILY. It’s totally a mind thing. I just heard a guy in line at the bagel shop say that he avoids veggies at all cost. I laughed and shared with him some fun ways to make it easier such as: spiralized zucchini noodles, […]
