The weather is heating up, but it’s clear that the central Arkansas food scene is just as hot. We’ve seen a string of exciting restaurant openings over the last few months, and there’s many more we’ll be seeing in the coming months. It’s definitely a great time to be an Arkansan, and we’ve got a lot to be proud of in this bourgeoning food scene. Keep your eyes glued to Eat Arkansas, we’ve got a lot of great things still to come.

It’s time once again for Food Feedback Friday, your opportunity to sound off on whatever it is you’re shoving in your face this week. On last week’s #FFF here’s what you all had to say:

There were mixed opinions on the annual Greek Food Festival. SusieQ put down a Gyros sandwich, chicken kebob, hummus, and baklava and seemed to be pleased with her selections, but nolaguy left “extremely disappointed,” stating that “there was practically no flavor in anything” and that “my family wished we'd just gone to Layla's instead.” Kevin describes his “new favorite lunch discovery” from Rock ‘N Tacos, a chicken taco salad with “shredded chicken, lettuce, wonderful beans, rice, guac, sour cream, and fresh mango salsa.” Thanh is pleased with A.W. Lin’s, calling their seafood coconut soup “awesome as always.” Raven enjoys the Cajun turkey spread sandwich from Bray Gourmet, numbernine tried out Chuy’s stating, “it's not worth a wait of more than 10-15 minutes, but it's good,” and that their “tortillas are delicious.” And Tammy attended the Heifer International Feast in the Field, sampling a “delicious creamy carrot soup garnished with herbal creme fraiche,” and a “fall-off-the-bone Coq au Vin with spring vegetables and polenta.”

There you have it. Your turn. Let us know what’s filling your belly this week.

  • 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:

    Donald Trump is right. There was a time when America was great and it didn't pussyfoot around to avoid offending people who thought they were victimized by discrimination.
