#OnTheTable in New York
Are you guys familiar with soul food? It’s usually deep fried and leaves you feeling satisfied, which might be why it’s also known as “comfort food”. Amy Ruth’s in Harlem is the place to go for a truly Southern soul food experience.
Behind the bright orange exterior of the restaurant is a space that’s a bit past its prime, but that’s serving up plates of Southern classics such as fried catfish and grits, and smothered pork chops. However, Chris and I went to this restaurant for something else - fried chicken and waffles. That’s right. It’s the ultimate combination of sweet and salty. Imagine this: a fluffy, slightly sweet waffle topped with a piece of perfectly crispy fried chicken, to which you can add a drizzle of maple syrup. If the thought is blowing your mind and you can no longer think, feel free to look at the picture above. We also ordered the seafood platter with cheesy grits and fried okra, because you can’t go to a Southern restaurant and leave without eating grits and okra.
You might’ve also noticed pictures of Central Park. That was where we went afterwards to work off the guilt (there really wasn’t any).
