My parents were in town for a week last week, and wanted to stay a night in the quarter and go on some walking tours. We live on the northshore, so they were venturing alone, and I gave them some recommendations for a lunch and a dinner. They would not be called foodies, and my mom grew up on a farm and loves down home cooking, so I though they would really enjoy WMSH. My dad was not keen on the idea, because he thought he should eat in the quarter so he would not have to drive or take a cab anywhere. I reluctantly convinced him to try somewhere else as the food in the quarter can be hit and miss and often very overpriced. My mom was excited to try WMSH as she is often in search of the best fried chicken. Well, they cabbed it over there and much to their surprise when they arrived, they found the Travel Channel there filming a show. Evidently the travel channel has a "Paradise" series where they go in search of particular food finds. This week's was hamburgers, but in February they will have one on fried chicken, and WMSH will be prominently displayed. Both of my parents got interviewed, so it was super exciting for them. My dad will always now trust my recommendations. By the way, my mom did say it was the BEST she has ever had. Does anyone have their recipe or technique?
