feelin froggy?

Has anyone ever had better frog legs than at The Faded Rose?  The picture above was taken by yours truly at the Rebsamen Park Road location last weekend.

Lemony, zesty, and the paramount of the friedoliscous arts in my opinion.  Lightly breaded and deep fried in olive oil, butter, garlic, white wine & herbs. $6.50.   I always get an order for an appetizer.

The question is not rhetorical.  If you've had better frog legs- I wanna know about it.  And please give directions.

PS FROM MAX: I just read a co-operative extension service news release that's bad news for frog lovers (and all of us, given general environmental implications). A mysterious virus is decimating the world's frog population, both in the wild and commercial crops.

    On my way back to my hometown for the holiday, I stopped off in Memphis for lunch.Neely's BBQ, opened by the nephews of the famous Jim Neely, the owner of Interstate BBQ.I gots the pulled pork platter.  With Fries and Beans.  Sorry, I should have gotten the slaw or potato salad, but I was craving some fries.  And boy were they good.  The sauce was good, but the pork itself was the real standout- tender and smoky.  The beans were also the best I've had in a while.  Nice and tangy.Mrs. Belly gots the small BBQ Sammich.And who can resist the BBQ spaghetti?   This is good stuff.  Pasta with BBQ sauce and pork- how could you miss?Stop off at Neely's next time you're in Memphis.  You'll be glad ya did.  Got a good spot in Memphis/West Memphis to tell us about?

    One of the very few places in Little Rock that I have found to be reliable restaurant every time out is Cafe' Prego.  The prices are reasonable, the service is attentive, the wine list is good, and the food is excellent.Shrimp Crepes with mixed veggies is an excellent light dinner choice-Myself- I can't seem to steer clear of the eggplant parmesan.   A side of pasta clinches the deal- all for about 10 bucks.  This dish is easy to botch- I've seen it done too many times, but Prego nails it every time.What's your Ol' Faithful?
