Honeys Heart: Black Eyed Pea dip
Miss Delta serves "Southern family favorites made from scratch" and, I have to say, they do it well.
Doug and I started off our happy hour visit with two of Miss Delta's specialty cocktails which are $1 off during happy hour (beers too). I had a Cucumber Kamikaze ($7) made with cucumber-infused vodka, orange liqueur, fresh lime and simple syrup. Such a pretty little glass and the drink was very refreshing.
For food, we ordered Corn Fritters ($4) with green chili and black-eyed pea dip. These were delicious. The fritters were crispy on the outside and had whole kerns of corn in them and the black-eyed pea dip was creamy with the perfect amount of heat. And yes, I was eating the dip straight out of the bowl with a spoon. I would do it again too.
We also had Trashy Mac with Gumbo ($6.50). I'm usually a plain mac n cheese kinda gal, but I loved the addition of the gumbo- Miss Delta makes theirs with a roux, seafood broth, tomatoes, okra,
andouille sausage, shrimp, smoked chicken. Yum! (Except for the sausage... you know how I feel about andouille.)
Hopefully we'll make it back to Miss Delta soon to try some more items off their happy hour menu since the Pulled Pork Tacos ($6.50) and Chicken & Waffles ($7.50) sound mighty good as well. Brunch is supposed to be pretty tasty too.
