What to eat in and around Seattle today: Southern Kitchen

Jun 25 2020, 1:48 pm

If you’re hankering for a taste of the south, look no further than Southern Kitchen.

The Tacoma restaurant serves up “food for the soul” — offerings that are comforting, full of flavour, and have been recognized as the good stuff by Guy Fieri himself.

Menu items are made with fresh ingredients that are, whenever possible, sourced locally.

The cheese in the Mac? That’s Tillamook cheddar cheese from Oregon. The chicken is organic and free-range, from Draper Valley Farms located in Mount Vernon. And Stewart’s Meat Market in Yelm exclusively handcrafts this spot’s beef bacon.

The catfish, as well, is farm-raised to strict environmental standards in Mississippi.

When you stop by this homestyle joint, make sure you arrive hungry, because you’re going to want to order something from each of the menu’s courses.

First-up are the starters, and they look fine. Fried Green Tomatoes, Fried Okra, Hush Puppies and for the adventurous, Jalapeno Hush Puppies are all on offer for those looking to crush cravings quick.

Next up are mains, which force you to choose between land, water, or handheld. Don’t let the decision stress you out though, because no matter what you pick, your tummy will thank you.

While all of the options are genuinely mouthwatering, the Catfish Dinner, Chicken Fried Steak Dinner, and Fried Chicken Sandwich are particularly tempting.

If you drop by earlier than your typical lunchtime, that’s okay too. You’ll be able to snag one of the breakfast specials, which range from Pancakes or Corncakes with Eggs and Meats, Biscuits and Gravy, or an Omelette with sides.

Don’t forget to load up on sides, too. Buttered Corn, Candied Yams, Collard Greens, and Red Beans and Rice are only a few of the options to pair with your meal.

You can drop by this restaurant to grab your meal curbside or, if you’d prefer to stay in your comfy pants while you await your comfort food, you can order delivery on Uber Eats, Grub Hub, Door Dash or Postmates.
