Temporary Suspension

Due to an illness in the family, I have to temporarily discontinue most of my postings on this blog. I’m afraid I will not have the time to go out scouting around for new restaurants or new dishes at old favorites. Of course, if something comes my way, Ill post it or if any of my readers have little tidbits of news about eateries or the world of foodies in general, I will be delighted to post it. Just sent them to me at Tidbits@savannahbest.com.
Hopefully, I will be back in stride soon!

Low Country Boil to go at Murphy’s

You really can’t beat the Low Country Boil at Murphy’s. It’s fresh — prepared the moment you order it — and heaping with shrimp, plus the usual sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob. It’s a big portion, too, so for the average appetite, two can probably share the dish. At least, my husband and I do just that. And at $7.50 you really can’t go wrong. Murphy;s at 1201 Habersham St., Tel: 335-7325. Enjoy!

More than satisfied at Satisfied

On my most recent trip to Satisfied, I started off with their Flash Fried Asparagus as an appetizer. Now I love asparagus, and have eaten dozens of fried asparagus appetizers over the years, most of which I usually carefully extract from their coating and just eat the delicious green stalk. But their light and delicate batter is in itself filled with flavor, and I gobbled down every bite of it, all enhanced with a bit of mango aioli. Downright delicious!

Fish Lovers Rejoice!

Jack, my husband, walked in the door with a smile. “How about fish for dinner?” he said to my delight.

In the big bag he carried were freshly fried flounder, corn on the cob and hush pupies. Although I’m not a big fan of fried fish, Jack is, and I can live with it if the batter isn’t too heavy and the fish not overcooked. I adore corn on the cob! And who doesn’t like a good hush puppy? So we set the oven on Warm, put the food in, and a half hour later sat down to eat.

The flounder tasted fresh as could be and was perfectly cooked. The batter itself was tasty and not too heavy. So I ate some of it, then simply peeled the rest off of my fish and savored the flounder. The corn was perfectly cooked, too. That is, just barely cooked, so it tasted fresh off the field. And the hush puppies were the lightest, fluffiest, most delightful I’ve had in many a year!

This pleasant surprise came from Murphy’s Seafood Bargain, recently opened at 1201 Habersham St. just north of Henry.

Essentially a seller of sea food and fresh fish, Murphy will also cook to order.
In addition to the flounder, there were several other fish choices, among them Sea Bass, Tilapia, Mullet and Whiting. The fish menu will change, the owner says, depending on what’s caught that day. They also have a variety of shell fish — shrimp, several kinds of crab, oysters, conch, scallops, mussels, crawfish and more.

We also got a shrimp salad that night. A really wonderful shrimp salad, with small, sweet shrimp with a very light dressing that seems to include tiny bits of celery. Very possibly the best shrimp salad I’ve had in Savannah.

To order in advance call 912-335-7325. Hours are 10 to 6 Mon-Thur and 10-9 Fri & Sat
