Nana's Soul Food Kitchen - Charlotte, NC

Dinner 4/8/13

THE BEST SOUL FOOD I've eaten at a restaurant!

Served buffet style, all of the entrees and sides I tried were fantastic!

Fried Chicken (Smothered) - Southern fried chicken swimming in homemade brown gravy...tender meat and flavorful skin.

BBQ Ribs - melt in your mouth pork ribs with a sweet sauce

Fried Okra - Fresh breaded, not frozen fried okra

Macaroni & Cheese - Homemade macaroni & cheese with a garlic flavor

Cornbread - sweet cornbread muffin

Extra sides/deserts:

Collard Greens - Delicious collard greens...from my previous posts, you know that I don't normally like these, but when done right, they are awesome. These had a nice pork flavored after-taste.

Cabbage - tender, but not overly cooked cabbage leaves

Green Beans - average tasting green beans

Candied Yams - good sweet flavor, nothing extraordinary

Curry Chicken Rice - I asked the owner what his inspiration was for serving curry at a soul food restaurant, and he said that his wife grew up on it and wanted to share it with everyone. Delicious!

Stuffing with gravy - moist cornbread stuffing with the homemade brown gravy.

Banana Pudding - Not instant pudding. This pudding is made right and laced with a little Cool Whip. Very good!

Red Velvet Cheesecake - great concept. Red Velvet Cake on the bottom with red velvet flavored cheesecake on top.

Sweet Potato Pie - Made using REAL sweet potatoes and mixed just enough to combine the ingredients, but leaves some texture to the pie.
