Grandma's Soul Food in El Segundo

kevin | Mar 8, 2007 08:44 AM

New soul fooder joint, steam tables, with a wide variety of the usual wares. they have sweet tea too.

anyway, ordered up fried chicken, candied yams, and collard greens. the greens were the best part spicey and a tad bit bitter, great stuff. yams were super sweet though nowhere near as good as the ultra-deliciouis ultra-well spiced candied yams at Flossie's in Torrance.
When you think about it Gradma's is a lot like flossie's except for the prixe-fixe only style at Flossie's and the fact that Flossie's is much better. the fried chicken at grandma's was ok, but the portion was small and more importantly the chicken was lukewarm from sitting on the steam table (this never happens with the fried chicken at flossie's).

and the sweet tea was good not great. but it's a nice addition to the neibhorhood and hopefully it'll get much much better given time.
