a tiny taste of Georgia

Let me make one thing certain- I said Georgia, not Alma. For a taste of Alma, take a drive to your local Wendy's and pull on up to the drive-thru. Yesterday we went to Savannah for a nice birthday lunch on the river; we wandered up and down the cobblestone streets and decided upon Vic's on the River.  I wanted to order a taste of everything [as per usual], but Lisa had stayed in Alma to make meatballs for my birthday dinner so I had to save room. It was a solid meal, at fair prices, with a beautiful view [the view will be uploaded soon]. Here is a small sample of some of the lunch offerings at Vic's:

any restaurant that begins a meal with complimentary biscuits, pictured here with house-whipped honey butter, wins my vote. Red Lobster included... did I just openly admit that on the world-wide-web?? mmhmmm

Fried calamari with pickled peppers, citrus chili glaze & Feta chunks

Fried Oyster Po' Boy with Old Bay Fries
Don't let those fries dwarf the sandwich- there were about 8 or 9 Fatty McFat, plump & juicy, briny, perfectly fried oysters lined up on that lightly buttered baguette, complimented with a tangy remoulade along with lettuce & tomato to cut the richness. 

"Award Winning" Crawfish Beignets with Tabasco Syrup, which happens to be the second most delightful fried food condiment- following Frank's Red Hot aioli [what can I say, I'm a classy broad.].

Yes, nearly everything pictured above is fried, aside for the biscuits which are baked with enough butter that they may be worse than fried, but "when in Rome..."

  1. Where are the fried testicles? Ask Miriam the next time you see her about the time she ordered more testicles in her fried calamari.
