There was absolutely no explanation as to why I had so much energy after less than 4 hours of sleep, but nevertheless, I was up. My housewarming party the day prior had been a complete success (THANK YOU TO MY ATTENDEES) and my out of town guests were packing their bags to head home. So obviously the next most important thing to accomplish after a crazy evening…
FIND FOOD! GLORIOUS FOOD.
The choice ended up being an adorable restaurant called Hannah’s off the Square. This spot was definitely worth the visit, but the service didn’t take many prizes. Our waitress wasn’t extremely attentive, but for the food quality, I think my entire party was forgiving. We ordered Hannah’s Migas with Everything but the Kitchen Sink, Florentine Flat Iron Steak & Eggs, Hermalinda’s Chicken Tamale Plate, and my two absolutely favorites: Blackened Shrimp & Grits and Smoked Salmon Crepes.
I think most people are under the assumption that it’s pretty difficult to mess up traditional shrimp and grits. You boil some grits, sauté some shrimp, add a little cheese a VIOLA! So what makes the difference? I think you find that the quality of the ingredients, the method of cooking, and additional components transform this traditional dish into the savory and memorable menu option. The Blackened Shrimp & Grits featured cheesy Louisiana stone ground grits with 5 Blackened Shrimp, sauteed local greens and tomato bacon gravy.
