OK readers, this is a quick post. I wanted to remind you that I ate waffles with pulled pork, bacon, and bourbon maple syrup while traveling in Nashville and you did not. Check out that pork-on-pork action! Do you need more convincing that the food there is amazing? I sure hope not or I’ll have to question your taste buds.
Throughout the city, restaurants take traditional Southern comfort foods, in this case pulled pork, and mix it up with a modern twist. I experienced similar inventions with mac and cheese (using penne pasta and smoked gouda cheese), fried okra (lightly fried, less greasy), and a dish I eyed lustily but didn’t try: sweet potato french toast.
Visit Nashville and go hungry. Your mouth and your belly will thank you. While you’re there, remember to munch on some of the famous hot chicken… if you can handle it.
