T.G.I. Food Feedback Friday! We welcome you back to Arkansas’ most fabulous forum for detailing all of your culinary adventures around our beautiful state. Keeping up with all the goings on in our local foodscape can be difficult, but this is our opportunity to unite in the name of food to help keep each other in the know. So if you’ve got some inside information on the uprising of a particular eatery, or a scoop on a local restaurant’s special dishes, here is your chance to clue us in.

Last week’s Food Feedback Friday was chock full of juicy tidbits from restaurants all over the state. Let’s review, shall we? Lemongrass Asian Bistro, a NLR establishment I’ve (sadly) yet to visit is still rustling up some internet chatter, but when it comes to Thai, the Little Rock food cart, kBird, is giving them a run for their money. There’s more pork love for Craig’s BBQ in De Vall’s Bluff, a town that should not be visited without a stop by the Family Pie Shop (which has even received mention in The New York Times). We heard some spicy talk on Star of India and Taj Majal, as well as the dish on fish, including rainbow trout and fried catfish, from the Capital Bar and Grill. There’s a new Italian joint in Monticello named Panorama, but there was a lot of praise for Italian staples, Vesuvio and Capeo; the latter is apparently offering an excellent elk scaloppini. We got a report on the spooning that went down last weekend at Loblolly Creamery, where they introduced the new flavors they’ve developed after returning from “Ice Cream University.” (The Mighty Rib has also posted an exceptional report on this sweet new development.) We heard some early words on the Antunes’ menu at Ashley’s, as Michael also detailed here after a recent visit. Lastly, we got wind of some blueberry pie worth braggin’ about at Oark General Store in Oark.

Got some succulent secret you’d like to share? Now’s your chance.

  • 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:

  • Looking in on the new Le Pops, now in the Heights

    Le Pops is a wonderful addition to the Heights neighborhood. Laurie Harrison is incredibly dedicated to her product, she still works here 7 days a week and is constantly experimenting in the kitchen to develop new flavors. Check them out the next time you need a cool down.

  • Hutchinson's dilemma same as Beebe's and his GOP affiliation doesn't help

    Ernest Dumas writes about the difficulties faced by Gov. Asa Hutchinson in matching the achievements of Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe, even though he, like the majority of the legislature is a Republican. In short, Hutchinson needs Obamacare money, though his party rests on a foundation that hates Obamacare.

    A two-week cruise from Vancouver to Alaska was nicely timed for the August heat wave. It dipped into the 40s during my visit to the Hubbard Glacier, loudly "calving" with mighty booms of cracking ice. Here's a brief politically tinged travelogue.

    If one were of a low and suspicious nature regarding the New York Times' historically inept Washington Bureau, one might suspect yet another example of the "Clinton Rules" — that is, a shaky allegation unsupported by facts.
