Fried chicken sandwich showdown visits Buttermilk

Posted on by

first_img Tags: food • fried chicken • restaurant reviews Share this: FacebookTwitterRedditemail,0% 0% Monk’s KettleLa SalumeriaRhea’s Cafe Mark: I don’t know what I’m feeling here. It isn’t bliss; it isn’t disappointment. If anything, all I can feel is nothingness. I look at the words painted on one of Buttermilk’s walls: “Southern state of mind.” It should instead read, “No state of mind.”This sandwich only instills in me a sense of gripping neutrality — so much so that I cannot help looking up at the McDonald’s chicken nuggets commercial on the restaurant’s T.V. and wish I was there, so I can feel something — anything — even if it’s contempt.The bun is nicely toasted, but still too bready! The chicken is juicy and tender, but is covered in batter that’s chewy and flavorless!So, if I’m to play along with your fancy Olympian’s scores about so-called “taste” and “artistry” and whatnot, chew on this math: Great, juicy chicken + chewy flavorless batter: what does that equal? It equals zero, Mark. In layman’s terms? Zip, zilch — nothing. A void of flavor.But its nothingness is also its strength. Chicken sandwiches can kill your day/stomach/youthful complexion quicker than a bullet, but here I’m left with a spring in my step, enough to walk down to McDonald’s and regain a sense of something, anything.Three faves so far: The fried chicken showdown begins at the Salumeria, Dec. 7, 2017The friend chicken showdown takes a detour to Wes Burger, Dec. 18, 2017The fried chicken showdown goes to Monk’s Kettle, Jan. 4, 2018The fried chicken showdown goes to Rhea’s cafe, Jan. 23, 2018center_img “It’s hot tonight and half the neighborhood is drunk. the other half is dead. if I have any advice about writing poetry, it’s — don’t. I’m going to send out for some fried chicken.”             –Charles BukowskiIt’s hot this afternoon outside Buttermilk Southern Kitchen on Bryant at 23rd. Reading Bukowski to the dog while waiting for a fried chicken sandwich.He’s one of the dog’s favorites. I can’t explain it.Nor can I speak for Bukowski, but what I mean by “fried chicken” is good old American “Southern” fried chicken. You know, that special kind of fried chicken created by enslaved African Americans combining recipes from 19th-Century Britain with batters and spices from West Africa.Social and global relations in a sandwich. I can’t wait.Then I start thinking of the Olympics, then I’m thinking I should have gone for Korean … then the sandwich arrives, and it’s showtime.And the score?Technical: 85Excellent technique on the brine and deep frying.Batter light, thin, crispy, not crunchy. Endures juicy meat and runny slaw. Although it loses its crisp over time, doesn’t lose flavor, nor, surprisingly, form.Points off for sloppy slaw and soft, untoasted, unbuttered, bloated, blah bun.Artistry: 73First impression: This is a Big Sandwich. I thought I would need a grappling hook to get ahold of it.Again, deductions for slaw and bun. The bun is too big. The pinkish-orange color produced by the slaw and the batter, while not appealing, is not as repellent as some.Taste: 95First and foremost, the meat. Big chunks of brined dark meat. Whatever they use for the brine sets this sandwich apart from others I’ve had in the district recently. Maybe it’s my salty nature.The cool, slightly sweet cabbage, carrot and mayo slaw acts as a worthy complement. And, while the delicately spiced batter doesn’t call attention to itself, you know it’s there.Note: The sandwich is really humongous, which is not necessarily a criticism. I took half home and put it in the fridge. The next day, though it had obviously lost any semblance of freshness, there remained strong echoes of the first day’s taste. Not much else.Except the very large bun stayed largely intact. There’s a lot of dough to absorb the slaw, so the bigger structure holds.On the strength of its technical score and enduring taste, Buttermilk has edged into second place on my top three, currently behind Rhea’s and just ahead of Monk’s Kettle.There’s a lot for you to chew on, Julian. The ball’s in your court (or, the sandwich is on your plate). Julian, 20-something, and Mark, 70-something, will be hunting for the Mission’s best fried chicken sandwich. If you have suggestions, write a comment — or, if you prefer, send an e-mail to Julian at julian.mark@missionlocal.com.last_img read more

Spunky squirrel goes viral ice cream shop has best summer ever

Posted on by

first_imgHOLDEN BEACH, NC (WWAY) — We told you about Putter, the ice cream eating squirrel from Holden Beach, back in April.Following our story, Putter went viral. Her story got national and world wide attention.- Advertisement – We went back down to Brunswick County to see how the summer went and how Putter made it ‘the best summer ever’.It was quite a surreal season for Fantasy Isle Ice Cream and Golf owners Scott and Pam Martin to say the least.“Business wise it’s been incredibly busy,” Scott said. “Putter has been here everyday and has been a huge part of that.”Related Article: Allergy alert issued for some Ben & Jerry’s productsDay after day, Putter or “Put Put” climbs down from her tree above Fantasy Isle to munch on her own little pint size sweet treat, an almond soy milk and honey mixture topped with scoop of sugar free vanilla.The Martins say they have see a lot of new faces and curious customers stop in to take a peek for themselves.“8 out of 10 people know about Putter or want to know about Putter,” Scott said.While thousands have come by, a few moments have stuck out beyond the rest.Pam said one woman traveled all the way from Kentucky to see Putter. For Scott, his most memorable moment was when a 91-year-old woman and her son visited. She wasn’t in the best health so her short, but special encounter with Putter she said made her whole week.“You think it’s a silly little thing like a squirrel but then you get a day like that where it makes a big impact on somebody’s lives, that’s pretty special,” Scott said.With the extra attention lately, they say it can get a little nutty.“It’s been exhausting at times,” Pam said. “We have told the story over and over again but we are still enjoying it.”Putter is not the only squirrel inside the trees but they say sure stands out from the others.“They just don’t act like she does and they don’t seem to take her lead,” Scott said. “They are squirrels and she just wants to be a little different.”The Martins say they have had an outpouring of community support and it’s all for a little squirrel with one spunky personality.“It has been a bigger story than us,” Scott said. “It’s been about the area and the people that live here.”Fantasy Isle will be open weekends from now through Halloween.last_img read more

It is unfortunate that we were not able to block this withdrawal before it was executed.’The company has since told its customers that the security breach had triggered a number of alarms forcing them stop all withdrawals, now resulting in the system being shut down while a review of their security is carried out.They anticipate that the review would take a week, with all deposits and withdrawals currently suspended. Reassuring its customers, Binance explains that it would cover the incident ‘in full,’ through its SAFU fund. No user wallets are understood to have been impacted.Binance in MaltaThe largest cryptocurrency exchange opened its doors in Malta back in March last year, following discussions over creating a large scale crypto exchange to service its 8 million users worldwide.The decision came just as Japan’s financial services agency the company to suspend its operations.According to the Japanese regulators, Binance did not have the correct registrations to participate in Japanese trading, thus violating rules.WhatsApplast_img read more

This was the second meeting of the Joint Process to further discuss cooperation on addressing the large number of people who continue to go missing on Mediterranean migration routes.Despite the decrease in the number of arrivals in Europe, more than 500 persons are reported to have died or to have gone missing in the Mediterranean region since the beginning of 2019. Globally, 31,000 persons have been reported missing or deceased along migratory routes since 2014.All four countries are main entry points for many migrants fleeing from war.Italy did not sign the joint statement which was issued following the conclusion of the second meeting of the joint process. The representatives of Cyprus, Malta and Greece have welcomed the initiative to further explore cooperation, including identifying “focal points” in each country.A year earlier, government representatives from Cyprus, Greece, Italy and Malta had discussed the possibility of initiating a Joint Process to Account for Persons Missing as a Result of Migration in the Mediterranean Region. ICMP has acted as the secretariat of the Joint Process and has facilitated the immediate objectives of the Joint Process following the meeting in June 2018.In their joint statement, the three states reiterated that “Locating missing migrants requires effective cooperation among States in a range of fields, including improving the utility of available data, forensic and other technical aspects, and support to families of the missing”.WhatsApplast_img read more
