While in Savannah, we were fortunate to be able to eat at Paula Deen’s restaurant, The Lady & Sons. VIP, no waiting in line was one of the perks of going on the Paula Deen tour as long as you called ahead to make a reservation. Apparently her restaurant is hard to get into without a reservation. Since I’m a Southern gal who loves to throw down on some Southern cookin’ ya’ll know this was on my to-do list!
OMG! It was so good! You could order off the menu but Rob and I both tried the buffet. I’m a sampler so I like to get a little (or a lot!) of everything.
On the menu was: fried chicken, baked chicken, maple glazed pork chops, mashed potatoes, creamed corn, collards, yams, lima beans, dirty rice, and macaroni and cheese. There was also a salad bar. I skipped that and went straight for the real food. We also got ho cakes and cheesy bread and dessert with the meal. And no, a ho cake is not a derogatory term! It’s the best tasting piece of fried bread you ever put in yo’ mouth!! For dessert I had the peach cobbler, da bomb!!! The waiter told us that Paula refers to her peach cobbler as "Slap Yo Momma Peach Cobbler." Now I’m not advocating violence against yo momma but that was some good peach cobbler.
Check out my pics!
Me and Rob. He is so excited to be going on the tour. :)
Totally unrelated sidenote: I cut my bangs. Do they make me look weird? Not that I need help with that....
My plate of yummy goodness. You can see a corner of the ho cake on the left. Sorry that the lighting is weird...
