Hush Puppies Fresh Out Of the Fryer
20 June 2008 | Oriental, NC - Village Restaurant
Keith, cool evening, but not so cool that we turn off the air conditioning
One of the most delicious things on earth is a Brawlies restaurant hush puppy fresh out of the fryer. A proper hush puppy is made of corn meal and tastes sweet. The fat content is just short of spooning lard out of a bucket, but the taste is country heaven. We celebrated Friday with dinner out and splurged on the $9.95 country buffet. They had a lot of the good stuff: meatloaf, fried chicken, pot roast, mashed potatoes and gravy, three kinds of beans, cole slaw and potatoe salad, macaroni and cheese, and desserts of cherry cobler (they ran out of this before we could try it) and pudding with vanilla wafers. There may have been more country treats, I can't remember it all. It was odd that the place was slow on a Friday night. Everyone who is anyone in these parts must be at the Deaton affair.
