Welcome back to the most sizzling weekly forum in the entire state of Arkansas, Food Feedback Friday! If you've been tuned into this blog for some time now, you probably already know the drill by now. This is the place to provide us with your input on all things food in Arkansas. Maybe you'd care to share some kind remarks on one of your favorite restaurants, someplace newly discovered or even an old standby...this is your opportunity to spill the beans. Likewise, maybe there's some place that's harmed your palate and practically stolen your money in exchange for unacceptable food...let your wrath here be kindled. So long as you're talking food, we'd love to hear all about it.

Likewise, Food Feedback Friday is an ideal opportunity to share some secret discovery or inside scoop regarding restaurant openings or closings. I've already heard some early reports regarding the offerings of the highly anticipated and already carefully scrutinized Joel Antunes, successor to the throne at the majestic Capital Hotel. Reports are good, and I assure you we'll have full report here at the Times as soon as we're able to score a seat at this Frenchman's feet. Last week's Food Feedback Friday saw some minor celebration over the return of Oaklawn with its corned beef sandwiches and raw pleasures at the Oyster Bar. We also heard the word on Lemongrass Asian Bistro in NLR with their lovely drunken noodles and Thai basil chicken, bistek from Guadalajara also in NLR, grilled shrimp and veggies at Krazy Mike's, more praise for the kouign amann from Mylo Coffee Co. (which, if I may interject my personal opinion, may be the single best pastry in all of central Arkansas), cheese dip from Pancho's Villa in West Memphis, and fried catfish and hushpuppies from Eat My Catfish in Benton.

Tell your fellow foodies what they need to shove into their faces this weekend. It's never been a better time to eat out in Arkansas.

  • 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:
