Want to know what has been getting me through this heat wave, the Good plates Eatery HUGE COLD FRIED CHICKEN sandwich with Pickles, and their garlic aïoli. I also cut the heat wave when I take the biggest bites of their pasta salad right after a bite of the sammie. The PASTA SALAD is a rotini, Italian Dressing, Red Pepper, Broccoli, and my other must have to pair, their CORN & TOMATO SALAD – Corn, Tomato, Jalapeno, Feta. My additional favorite side of the moment is their SWEET POTATO & BLACK BEAN QUINOA – Roasted Sweet Potato, Black Bean, Pickled Red Onion, with homestyle BBQ.
This weekend we in Cincinnati, Ohio and NKY finally have a reprieve in the heat wave, which will give you some time to venture out of the house and stop into Good Plates to pick up food or dine in for that Father’s day outing or just a weekend rendezvous. Having spent some of my childhood in deep Kentucky in the Summer, fried chicken and pasta salad, were staples. So when I bit into Good Plates thick and I mean thickems, fried chicken, it was a bite into my childhood from the Hot Summers of Kentucky.
This Sunday we plan on fly-fishing, if the weather stays in the 70s, and whats perfect for fly fishing, to go’s from Good Plates, located in Cincinnati, Ohio in the Clifton Heights area. If you have ever made fried chicken from scratch, you know those legs and breasts take some time to get that o so perfect crisp, and of course you do not want to dry out that chicken. Good Plates has the same at home fried chicken taste, but better. A juicy chicken, a crunchy outer layer, with pickles and that garlic aoli sauce, that makes licking your fingers acceptable. Now everyone has their take on fried chicken, if you have made the fried chicken from scratch, then you most definitely have your tricks of the trade. Good Plates has perfected my most favorite Summer lunch of the moment, with this classic made to eat at a luncheon outing or during a work break (which is what I do at the gallery) no fork and knife needed. Good Plates, gives me all the tastes of my childhood, with updated nods, and food presentation that appeals to my adult creative food obsessed side.
CORN & TOMATO SALAD – Corn, Tomato, Jalapeno, Feta.
