We made the trip from the Upper West Side to Harlem for two reasons. The Apollo Theater and dinner at Amy Ruth's.
I expected to wait in a line, but arriving at 6:30 pm on a Saturday night, this wasn't an issue. Each entree is named after a famous African American and served with your choice of two sides. Soul food not being available on mass in Australia we decided to try sides that we had never had before (the Mac & Cheese being the exception, but i would debate we had ever had good Mac &Cheese before!).
The corn bread they serve on arrival was warm and soft
The President Barack Obama $13.95
Smothered Chicken with Fried Okra and Cheesy Grits
The Nate Robinson $15.95
BBQ Spare Ribs with Mac &Cheese and Collard Greens
Our favourite was definitely the ribs and our least favourite the cheesy grits (we had never had grits before), the collard greens were a pleasant surprise. My biggest regret was not trying the Kool-Aid of the day.
