DINING | ODDF3LLOWS
produce from her garden at home, and says she is very
honest with people about what is organic on the menu
and what is not.
Other ways Oddf3llows is like an adventure and not
just another place to eat can be found in the quirky, nonmatching tables and chairs, the bright colors of the main
dining room and the local art for sale covering the walls.
And then there's the food.
I would definitely call my dining experience at Oddf3llows an adventure. My husband and I enjoyed a Sunday brunch there recently, capping off a short weekend
get-away to Floyd. Their menu was a diverse offering
of both breakfast and lunch items. We both opted for
lunch, since we'd had breakfast at our B&B. I found it
hard to choose. There were a number of dishes familiar
to me, but with a fun twist (Smoked Crab Cakes, The
Crazy Croissant or the The French Dope, for example).
I decided on the Tuna Jezebel (mostly for its name), and
my husband ordered The Odd Bowl. Both dishes were
absolutely fun.
The Tuna Jezebel was a savory fusion of flavors and
textures. The chili-and-cinnamon-spiced tuna was seared
rare making it oh-so fresh and melt-in-my-mouth good,
while giving my taste buds a zing of spiciness. The vegetables were crisp, cooked perfectly and melded nicely

with the carrot ginger rice. It was a party of tastes, textures and smells, and I loved every bite.
My husband's Odd Bowl came out exactly how it
sounds: a large bowl of Rice Noodle Lo Mein piled high
and mixed in with a medley of fresh vegetables, chicken,
a touch of curry and sesame, and topped with sweet potato relish. It was fabulous. And since my husband is a
pretty nice guy, he even saved half for me to enjoy the
next day, making me the lucky recipient of Oddf3llow
adventuring two days in a row.
Lynch says in the year and a half she's owned Oddf3llows, what has impressed her the most is the way the
Floyd community has been so supportive. She especially
loves the groups of older folks who have become regulars, and started encouraging their friends to come in
as well.
"This year, a couple of the women's husbands passed
away, and they chose to come here to eat after their services," says Lynch, a humble awe in her tone. "It made
me feel good about having a place where people wanted
to come and be." I
