well, who knew?

I was taken to this awesome restaurant in a part of a big, old 1926 elementary school in fondren, mississippi.  as mainly an oyster bar, it’s appropriately named, “Saltine” and it shouldn’t be missed.  we were there quite early as we were starving and so glad we went.

i had the flounder chowder that was out of this world.  i was so entrenched in it that i forgot to take a picture of it.  it came with pan seared gulf flounder, sweet potato, clam chowder and this unbelievable pork belly croquette.  of course, we had some oysters too.  ah-mazing.

i snagged these pics off of yelp.  If you find yourself in these necks of the woods – you won’t go wrong eating here.  instant wow factor walking in door and the food is a triple wow. only mistake was getting too full for desert.

good job Jesse + rachel houston! my husband, ROF, wants to learn about oysters and I think you know your stuff.  let me know when you come out with a book!
