Chitterlings & Hog Maws: East 12th Kafe

slowcoooked | Apr 10, 2013 07:26 AM

The special on New Year's Eve was Chitterlings and Hog Maws. We apparently ALL missed it. I could find no mention of this place here and share in the collective lame-ness. Finally went this Monday. I got the 5 pc fried catfish, collards, and black eyed peas. The large pieces of fish were hot, crispy, lightly cornmeal breaded, a smidgen overcooked but in good oil. This catfish tops all in Austin for me except Southern Hospitality. Slightly greasier than SoHo's, but probably from the 30 seconds extra in the fryer. The sides separate this place from Fred's at SoHo. The collards and black-eyed peas were chock full of ham hock. Best b-eyed peas I've had in Austin, and second best collards (After Ruby's). Not on the menu are daily specials (oxtail stew, meatloaf, chix-n-dumplins, pork chops, etc.) and they make scratch deserts (peach cobbler, banana pudding, sweet potato pie, buttermilk chess pie). This place is a winner. Warning, go early - they run out of stuff fast at the noon rush. 2nd warning, I'm embarrassed that I ate the entire 5 pc dinner to the crumb. It's a massive amt of fish. The three piece meal would be more than plenty.
