Ellens Soul Food

God help me if I'm becoming addicted to soul food - yummy, yummy, yummy. Generous tasty helpings of catfish with sides of string beans and black-eyed peas, served with a delicious plate of cornbread. MMMMMmmmm...cornbread.

After I finally checked into my hotel, I found my way out to Ellens, in the rain, at night. Memphis is a big town - it's really spread out. So it wasn't without a little apprehension that I made my way out into the darkest reaches of the 'burbs.

Man the trip was worth it though. A tiny little soul food cafe, a few locals enjoying some catfish and pork chops. The wrestlin' on the TV... heaven.
