Help me pick 10 meals in October

With all the travel and then at-home eating, it has been a slow on the blog since Cochon. Here’s the plan.

I want to write about 10 NEW (to me or to Memphis) places during the month of October, and I need your help.

Post in the comments where I should go, and I’ll work on making it happen in the next month.

  1. I would like to suggest Tom’s BBQ, Emilio’s Carniceria y Taqueria, and Restaurante Veracruz.
    Tom’s is well known in the area, but I don’t recall seeing any popular blog reviews.
    Emilio’s is a great little place, great for a quick bite and an interesting experience.
    Restaurante Veracruz is a nice Mexican restaurant and the only place in town that I have found the salsa served warm; it’s an interesting surprise.

  2. You may have already covered some of these…but I’d like to hear about places in the greater Mid-South area, like Hernando and Oxford. The kinds of places that might be a good day trip.

  3. The Half Shell on Winchester Rd has the best fish tacos in Memphis! I have always wondered if you have tried them. They are served with some of the best red beans and rice I have ever had. Give it a shot!

  4. I second the Venezuelan place next to Trolley Stop.. and DEFINITELY hit Evelyn & Olive next door for some grilled jerk wings and cabbage. Unreal.

    Most importantly, Camino el Michoacan. Skip the fluffy baked goods (pick up something dense or heavy-looking), and get a gordita with chorizo + fries and guac. I don’t know why, but the fries are heavenly.

    I forgot to search for the Cuban part of Los Compadres.. pollo asado to-die-for!

  5. The Half Shell on Winchester has the best fish tacos in Memphis. They are served with some delicious red beans and rice too. I promise you won’t regret this trip. The fried mushrooms are worth the trip alone, but PLEASE try the fish tacos.
