Flossie's (once again)

kevin | Oct 29, 200406:38 PM

tried it out again for the 1st time about a week ago. and i gotta say great stuff. although they retooled the menu, now it's more of a prixe-fixe deal for a little under 15 bucks a person, you get a main, three sides, and dessert, plus a soda or ice tea all inclusive in that fixed price. the fried chicken is pretty darn good but at only two pieces, barely a quarter of a chicken it's not that much poultry. but it was defintitely tasty and lots of nice crunchy fried bits, not too salty, and moist meat. there must of also been a very high turnover since there was almost literally a line out the door. and right when you open the door you can distinctly smell the ambrosia from right outside. also, for sides the candied yams always great even though they are saccarinely sweet yet the spices of great nuance (maybe nutmeg, cinnamonan, and butter , and of course a dash of vanilla most probably), also mac and cheese good as alway (one of the most bettest mac&cheeses out there), and also the greens which are slightly bland but you really need a tab bit of blandness to wash all that tasty crap down. for dessert, blackberry cobbler, a little two sweet but still darn good.

i wonder if there prices are more reasonbable during the lunch hour or something like that? but i must say that's it's head and shoulders above any other soul food in the southland, except maybe for ruth's place in santa ana.
