Food Feedback Friday

Posted By on Fri, Dec 21, 2012 at 12:25 PM


Well, the weather outside is getting frightful, it’s far too frigid to be outdoors for long. Therefore, you’re better off spending your time indoors, surrounded by the folks you love and hot plate of food. Once again, we bring you Food Feedback Friday, the single greatest opportunity for eaters to sound off and let the world know what’s going on in the food community in Arkansas.

Perhaps you’ve got some favorite cold weather destinations…a place you go to escape the snow (if we ever actually see any this year). It’s perfect weather for soup, so why not share where you like to grab a bowl when you need some defrosting? Pho sounds fantastic right now, chili would be charming, I could jump into some jambalaya, and Chinese hot and sour soup would warm the heart of Jack Frost himself. Got any favorite cold weather dishes worth elaborating on? I've got family in town for a week and we've got an extensive list of restaurants to patronize including Dowtown Cookery, ZaZa, Delicious Temptations, David's Burgers, Rocky's Pub, Mylo Bakery, The Southern Gourmasian, and H.B.'s BBQ. In our family, we don't fool around when it comes to food.

At our last Food Feedback Friday, we discussed the fate of The Heights Café, breakfast offerings at Route 66, the imminent arrival of another Papa John’s in the Heights, more love for Taqueria Karina, sipping chocolate from Loblolly Creamery, and the coming of a second Pizza Café location to west Little Rock. Now’s your chance to tell us where you’ve been feeding your pie-hole. We’d all love to hear about it.

  • The Kraft Mac & Cheese Food Hack

    Recently, we held another food hack competition, taking another childhood classic, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and tried to turn it on its head, creating something entirely new and unique. Again, the results were pretty awesome. The rules were simple: Use a whole box of mac and cheese, both noodles and cheese powder, and turn it into any sinister monstrosity imaginable. We had a vote via the Eat Arkansas Facebook page to crown a winner. Here's what was submitted:

  • Psych of the South: The Mercenaries' 'Things Found Here'

    Recently, a trove of band business cards from the golden era of Arkansas garage bands was discovered and put on eBay. I was able to purchase some of them, including one by a little known 1960s garage band from Little Rock named The Mercenaries. Their record, on the cult favorite MY records label based in Little Rock, was released in early 1967. Their songs, including the atmospheric and heavy “Things Found Here” along with the psychedelic tinged “Take It All” are obscure even by garage rock standards. They were not featured on the 1999 Butler Center MY records compilation and their story has not been told before
