Food Feedback Friday: candy, cornbread, and catfish

After my yearly Halloween candy bender—in which I single handedly devoured 14 king-sized Payday bars, 13 Reese’s peanut butter cups, 3 pounds of peanut M&M’s, and 8 Almond Joys—I’m looking forward a savory, sweet-free weekend…well, maybe a short trip to Loblolly is in order. Maybe Cupcakes on Kavanaugh. But that’s it.

Speaking of sweet, this weekend, you can get a sampling of “The New Cheesecake Company’s” wares at the Hillcrest Farmer’s Market, Saturday from 10 am to noon. You’ll remember I wrote about them here—I’m not kidding when I say it’s bound to be one of the best cheesecakes you’ve ever wrapped your lips around.

Remember, there’s lots of beer to be drunk tonight.

Lots of cornbread to be consumed tomorrow.

So what have y’all been eating? Last week on FFF, SusieQ tried out the steak burrito at Luna Maya Burrito. She says, “This is a big burrito y'all,” and seemed to be pleased with her meal. Susie also lets us know about the new Shark’s Fried Fish on Fair Park near US Pizza. Mordy has mixed feelings about a recent venture to South on Main. She gives her apps—beet and goat cheese salad, and fried green tomatoes with jumbo lump crab—“two thumbs up.” She describes all her entrees as “fantastic,” which included catfish, rabbit boudin, and pork chop. She was, however, disappointed with desserts, especially the “overdone sugar cookies” and the “pretty meh” donuts. Dana described a great experience at the 2nd Vegan Dinner Club at Café 5501.

Alright, your turn to weigh in.

  • 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:
