Food Feedback Friday: rumors, ragu, and Riverfest

We hope everyone had a spectacular Memorial Day earlier this week, but what we really want to know is, what were you eating? I was fortunate enough to attend a whole hog roast at the North Little Rock home of some dear friends…best whole hog I’ve ever eaten, fabulous food all around (and our friend and Eat Arkansas reader, hillbilly pharmacist, had a hand in this feast as well). Everyone should have friends who roast whole hogs, trust me. And this coming weekend, me ‘n the boys will be doing a whirlwind tour of Memphis, eating our way through the entire city. The plan is to cram in 15 restaurants in two days…we’ll see if we return with our colons intact. How did you spend the week? Did you nab any great eats?

Here’s your chance to give us the dish on all your favorite eats around town. Lots of great new arrivals to the Little Rock dining scene—Chuy’s, The Fold, Gus’s Fried Chicken. We recently got report from a friend that the much-anticipated Mamacita’s in the Heights (5923 Kavanaugh Blvd), former home of Satellite Café/Seoul Korean Cuisine/Heights Café, opened its doors to the public last night. We’re working on getting an official report ASAP. And the our friend, Sammy, hinted that Matt Bell's Oxford American restaurant, South on Main, will be opening its doors July 1st—to which I say, about bloody time.

Last week on FFF, we heard about pork ragu and polenta from The Pantry, the “can’t be beat” catfish at Burge’s, the fabulous funnel cakes from Flossie’s at Riverfest, a bodacious banh mi from The Root, and a cheeseburger basket from The Box.

Where’ve you been eatin’ 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:

  • Looking in on the new Le Pops, now in the Heights

    Le Pops is a wonderful addition to the Heights neighborhood. Laurie Harrison is incredibly dedicated to her product, she still works here 7 days a week and is constantly experimenting in the kitchen to develop new flavors. Check them out the next time you need a cool down.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
