This Mother's Day, I will be gifting my mom with a soul food cookbook. I have been painstakingly searching online for the absolute best there is available. In the process, I discovered this gem, a listing of the 10 Best Soul Food Restaurants in America. I've dined at two of these establishments--Alcenia's and Sweetie Pie's--and I've heard about a few of the others. So, I'd say this is a pretty solid list.
At Alcenia's in Memphis, I was fortunate enough to receive one of her legendary hugs. She serves up some serious food and I'm always happy to go back.
I hit up Sweetie Pie's over spring break while visiting a friend in St. Louis. We happened to be in the neighborhood around dinnertime so I indulged. It was pretty good eating.
As for the others, I'll add them to my list.
