WORK-RELATED TRAVEL NOTES (A.K.A., SOUTHERN COOKING SEEKING STRUGGLES)
Very good potato salad though.
I managed to ask some of the local gang for their personal recommendations for local grub, and I hope to find the gustatory satisfaction I need on the next journey. I think I need to skip the ribs and go further still into the heart of Southern cooking. Perhaps after the third request they'll understand me when I say I don't want fancy, and I don't want funky. I want greasy and unhealthy and very possibly unsanitary. I need the real deal.
I think I'm back in less than three weeks. To be continued . . .
