Okra Soup

Okra Soup

Head up Meeting Street until you see a two-story robin’s egg blue building with purple trim, and a line stretching out the door. The Southern soul food platters here are so tasty, generous, and inexpensive, that the line starts forming well before they open for lunch. Businessmen, laborers, and far-flung tourists alike shuffle through the quick cafeteria-style service counter loaded with a smorgasbord of meat and threes, such as fried pork chops, fish specials, yams, stewed greens, home-style mac-and-cheese, limas nestled with smoked turkey necks, dark roux okra soup, moist cornbread, and fried chicken better than anyone’s Grandma ever made. —Allston McCrady (Dish, Winter 2020)
