The daily grind got the best of me this week, so Food Feedback Friday is getting up rather late…just in time for your midnight snack. No biggie, the rules remain the same. Let us know what you’re eating, who’s really knocking it out of the park, and who’s falling flat. I’ve got the in-laws in town this weekend, which means fine dining is store for my wife and me. We’re thinking steaks…been too long since I’ve had a quality bone-in rib eye. Arthur’s or Sonny Williams have been the two we’re been considering most carefully.

Last week on Food Feedback Friday, Raven calls the zucchini salsa at Local Lime “one of the best salsas I’ve ever eaten,” but has some issues with the scant toppings from the pizza at Santa Lucia. Mordy ate some glorious sounding concoction dreamed up by the kitchen at White Water Tavern called “Thanksgiving in May” with turkey, cranberry sausage, cornbread stuffing, and mashed potatoes and gravy…as a sandwich. Kar had the chicken tenders from Slim Chickens and calls them “fresh, hot, and fantastic.” Hugh Mann had his “first go” at a sandwich from Hillcrest Artisan Meats and leaves satisfied, Kevin is underwhelmed by his pizza from Damgoode Pies, to which I say, join the club. Rooibos snagged a Reuben from the Capital Bar and Grill and says, “I’ve never had corned beef so tough.” That’s a shame. EY is pleased with the “huge short rib” from Acadia, and Joel checks out Leo’s Greek Castle under the new ownership, stating, “the hamburger was definitely an improvement from previous burgers there and the gyro platter as wondrous as ever.” You can read it all here.

Your turn folks, where ya’ grubbin’?

  • 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:
