Memphis Food

We had some lovely dining experiences, starting with the Blues City Cafe on Beale street. I had the excellent catfish, but the chili was very good, too.

We stopped in the City Market Food and Pharmacy in Cooper-Young, after visiting Burke’s. We ate tuna, chicken salad and pasta salad on crackers that night.

On Father’s Day, they took me to “The Beauty Store” for brunch. They have a photo booth in there, and powdered hot doughnuts. Beverly had chicken and waffles, where the chicken is actually spicy crunchy Chinese chicken.

My favorite meal was at Mulan’s asian bistro. We ordered too much, and ate this for two days. The very best thing was “Tiny crispy fish,” which features tiny sardines, jalapeƱo peppers, chunks of sliced garlic, and peanuts. Just WOW.

To our great surprise, the hot dogs in Gladys’ at Graceland were supurb.
