Foodie Finds
in Pittsburgh,
Norfolk, Louisville,
Columbia

WHEREVER YOU GO,

there
you eat.
And increasingly, visitors to a given
area - whether they're angling for shaved
ice on Oahu or iced tea (sweet, of course!)
in Atlanta - want to try what the locals
are most proud of. For those of you finding
yourselves in the below cities, we've put
together a few hot spots for some of the
town's best tastes.

Forgotten Taste hasn't been there for
decades just yet - they opened in 2001
- but it is lovingly operated by a pair
of Krakow natives with a penchant for
the culinary art of pierogi. Get varieties
including potato & cheese, cabbage,
potato & sauerkraut and hot sausage
boiled and topped with butter and
onions. Planning an event? They cater,
as well. (www.forgottentaste.com)

PIEROGIS IN PITTSBURGH

OYSTERS IN NORFOLK

These days the hipsters and food
artisans are putting together all kinds of
high-brow spins on this carb-laden Polish
classic, but we say if you can only have
a handful while you're in Iron City (and
seriously - kudos to you if you can keep
from scarfing!), go classic. Buttery-sautéed
pasta pockets filled with potato and onion
are one of the best ways to go!

In the Chesapeake Bay region, they
know their seafood, and some of the best
of it is shucked and served up cold, raw
and - if we have anything to say about
it - heavy on the horseradish!
At A.W. Shucks, the name says it all,
but raw bar offerings here aren't limited
to these delicate and delicious bivalves
- mussels, shrimp, crab legs and clams

will beckon the seafood enthusiast, as
well. And though we'd never go turf over
surf in this part of the country, there's
lots on the menu for folks who'd rather
take a pass on these culinary pearls of
the region. (shucksnorfolk.com)

BURGOO IN LOUISVILLE
What's burgoo, you ask?
It is Kentucky's gumbo in a way, a
thick, rib-sticking concoction of smoky
meats and veggies including lima beans,
okra and potatoes. There are many
versions of the stew, and even a preDerby tradition for some that includes a
nice, steamy bowl and a shot of good 'ol
Kentucky bourbon. Meeting in Louisville?
You have to give this local staple a try.
Hit up Mark's Feed Store, with several
Louisville locations, to get it by the cup or
bowl - and some local BBQ while you're
at it! (www.marksfeedstore.com/menu)

ENGAGE WINTER/SPRING 2018 VOL. 40 NO. 1

BISCUITS IN COLUMBIA
In the South, there are so many dishes
held dear that it's hard to pick a solid
staple, but the from-scratch buttermilk
biscuit - with or without thick, peppery
sausage gravy - is certainly one of them.
There are dozens of diners all around
Columbia to scratch your biscuit itch,
and one of them - Compton's Kitchen
- has been baking them up since 1977.
You can get one on the side of every
breakfast plate they serve or create
your own biscuit brekkie combining
any of their roster of ingredients -
like fatback or fried bologna - to suit.
