Last week Daphne and I cruised downtown to a spot I had not been in a long time, Sweet Potatoes Restaurant. I was so excited to get back to this southern food gem in our fair city. As soon as we walked in the door I started to smell the delicious scents of down home cooking and forgot about my waist line.
Daphne and I were seated right away and I was delighted to see the striking art on the walls in the crowded restaurant. I was instantly back in love with Sweet Potatoes.
As we sat down and started looking at the menu I was excited to see what was for lunch.
It was time to order. Daphne selected the Curried Chicken Salad and I decided on the V.V.’s Mama’s meatloaf. Daphne got a side of sweet potato fries and I got the fried okra with my meal.
I asked Daphne how she enjoyed her meal, “I loved it!! They definitely put classy into southern food!”
Like I said I had the meatloaf… OMG it wasn’t fair that I had to go back and work after that meal. I just wanted to enjoy the rest of my day. It was so good and I was so full.
Yes there is meatloaf under the crispy tobacco onion and gravy… Good MAMA it was knock your socks off good!!
I asked Daphne if there was anything else she’d like to tell y’all :
“I loved the art work. It fit the restaurant well. For elegant southern food they should definitely give Sweet Potatoes a try. They have everything from fried green tomatoes to okra. It is delicious! I would go back a hundred times!” I agree with her 1000% and it won’t be so long next time. It was the most enjoyable meal. Yum!!!
