Food Feedback Friday: beef, bumblebees, and big disappointments

Can you believe it? It’s already Friday…and that means it’s time for you to give us the dirt on all the happenings in your corner of the world. It’s time for Food Feedback Friday.

Plenty to be excited about around Little Rock. What were you all willing to share with us last week? Here’s a bit of what we heard:

E.W. Swan is now touting the burger at H.A.M. as “my new favorite in town…perfectly charred and seasoned, tender and juicy burger.” I’m not going to argue with you, E.W., there ain’t a bad thing in that entire shop. RazorbackArmyVet was less than pleased with Copeland’s in Shackleford Crossing. After sampling the crab claw, gumbo, seafood chowder, and stuffed shrimp, ArmyVet declares the place to be “disappointing and just okay.” He continues by wishing they’d just eaten at J. Gumbo’s instead, where “a bowl of J Gumbo's voodoo chicken with bumblebee stew would have been better, and about $40 less.” Again, I can’t argue with this statement. While J. Gumbo’s is a chain, I’m continually impressed with a handful of their stews. Numbernine had “eaten out way too much this past week,” but too the family for dinner at Rock n’ Tacos. “Their mango salsa is yummy & what a treat to have about 4 or 5 salsas to choose from and they are free! The street tacos continued to be good—I prefer the carnitas & spouse likes carne asada.”

  • 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:

    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.
