Cast Iron Kitchen: Worth a Quick U-Turn
Seeing that Cast Iron Kitchen was open meant a quick U-turn and an awesome brunch were my new plans for the day!
The pork cracklings and pimiento cheese could easily be one of the best lunch plates around but served as a mouth watering appetizer that led into the “Dirty South” Biscuit of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives fame and a chicken salad that would make anyone’s granny proud.
Finish up with a cinnamon muffin. No one will mind if you do two. Great food as always at Cast Iron Kitchen, but the best part of the morning may have been hanging with their adorable mascot, a French bulldog named Biscuit. Biscuit even has his own t-shirt line available at the restaurant.
Anyone who knows food in this area knows that Cast Iron Kitchen and Chef Petty are certainly “doing it right” for breakfast/brunch and lunch, and you can see for yourself, so check them out.
