Johnson's Soul Food Diner, Orlando

Fried Catfish

Oh man, that was good. It's not often that I get the chance to have Southern food. But this morning there was a break in the program, so I popped out to get a quick bite at Johnson's (595 West Church Street Suite E, 407-841-0717), which is apparently pretty well known around here.

I opted for the fried catfish, which was more lightly breaded than I thought it would be, and it hardly needed that Southern hot sauce and spicy vinegar that was available on each table. My sides of collard greens, deep-fried okra, and a Southern bean mix all were cleared in seconds too, as was that crumbly sweet corn bread. Mmm...simple and delicious comfort food indeed.

Very nice but please come to North Carolina for some real soul food. I'll take you to granma's house where you can get down and dirty and probably end the night with a heart attack. LOL.
