A bed of sour cream and home fries, topped with sautéed portobellos, tomatoes green onions, with bacon, feta and cheddar cheese. Served with grits, biscuit, and honey. $12.95
Brother Juniper’s, Memphis TN
Omg, there was SO much food on this plate! I couldn’t begin to finish everything especially since it was a pretty heavy breakfast. The omelet was really tasty though and I loved the creamy grits. Noms!
Eggs over medium, sausage patties, grits, biscuits and gravy. $8.59
Blue Plate Cafe, Memphis TN
Omg, food in Memphis is definitely cheaper than in San Francisco. This was SO much food for less than nine bucks. It definitely isn’t the healthiest food – I mean the give you extra butter for the grits AND the biscuits and gravy, lol! It’s definitely flavorful though.
Stone ground grits with shrimp-sausage gravy, bacon, and green onions. $14.99
The Fremont Diner, Sonoma CA
Doesn’t this plate just look SO lovely and appetizing?! 🙂 Mmm, I love shrimp and grits and this dish was really good. The flavor of the gravy was intoxicating and the shrimp were nice and tender. Noms!
With 2 eggs, spicy grits, and toast. $13.95
Market Lunch, Washington DC
This plate was delicious! I just wish that the piece of rockfish was a little bigger. The grits had a little kick to them which was lovely. This place gets packed, but I was able to snag a corner of the communal table right in front.
With brown sugar butter and apple cider syrup. $15
Brown Sugar Kitchen, Oakland CA
I’m still annoyed by the ridiculously long wait that we had to endure and the bad service we encountered at this place, when the food wasn’t even amazing enough to make up for it. This bbq shrimp was super sweet and became nauseating after eating it for a while. Needless to say, I didn’t finish. This place also uses Barilla pasta, an blatantly anti-LGBT company. Definitely not returning…
Two soft boiled eggs, smoked grits, caramelized onion, spaghetti squash, pork candy. $13
Chambers Eat and Drink, San Francisco CA
I liked the pork belly, the fried grits balls, and even the pieces of pork sugar candy but I really couldn’t get over the spaghetti squash mixed with the caramelized onion. What?! This is another dish where everything just didn’t taste right together…
Mixed lichen centerpiece.
Tillamook cheddar grits, chorizo butter. $12
Matchbox Palm Springs, Palm Springs CA
Having eaten many versions of shrimp and grits in the South, I was NOT impressed by this at all. The grits were too congealed, the shrimp were overcooked (burnt actually), and the chorizo sauce was WAY too salty. Ugh, I couldn’t even finish it. 😦
