This week, it’s business as usual on Food Feedback Friday. We greatly appreciate all the excellent feedback we squeezed out of you all on last week’s FFF. As you can read all about here, our “popping out of Pulaski” edition was a huge success, clearly you all have eaten some fantastic food all around the state, and we got to hear a bit about some of the places doing it right last week. Fayetteville was well represented, with recommendations for Momma Dean’s for soul food, Taste of Thai for tom kha soup, and Hugo’s for their blackened chicken sandwich. Eureka Springs was also a popular area of discussion with suggested eateries such as Ermillio’s for Italian, Mud Street Café for pancakes, and Casa Colina for Mexican. Honestly, there were a whole lotta places getting recognition last week, so go back and check out the list if you’re out and about in Arkansas.

This week, we’ll open the forum to whatever and wherever you’d like to discuss, Pulaski or not, anything is fair game. So, where are you all eating this week? You all know there are many fantastic food events this weekend, including the Arkansas Times Heritage Hog Roast, the Arkansas Food Blogger Bake Sale, the Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, and the Turkish Food Fest. That’s a lot of good eatin’ to be had! Feel free to drop us a line here regarding anything and everything you attended this weekend.

A few new hot items of business coming up in the next week. We mentioned the opening of the upscale taqueria, The Fold (which has apparently dropped the “e”), coming to Riverdale…they’re softly opening their doors this Sunday for Cinco de Mayo. We’ve mentioned the coming of Texas-based chain, Chuy’s to WLR in the parking lot of the Chenal Pkwy Kroger…they’ll be open to the public by next Tuesday and we’ll be back next week to report on what’s going on there. And lastly, chicken fans are rejoicing at the opening of Slim Chickens in the former Backyard Burgers space near UAMS which should also be opening its doors next Monday.

Now go forth, and feedback!

  • 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:
