Last week Daphne and I cruised downtown to a spot I had not been in a long time, Sweet Potatoes Restaurant. I was so excited to get back to this southern food gem in our fair city. As soon as we walked in the door I started to smell the delicious scents of down home cooking and forgot about my waist line.

Daphne and I were seated right away and I was delighted to see the striking art on the walls in the crowded restaurant. I was instantly back in love with Sweet Potatoes.

As we sat down and started looking at the menu I was excited to see what was for lunch.

It was time to order. Daphne selected the Curried Chicken Salad and I decided on the V.V.’s Mama’s meatloaf. Daphne got a side of sweet potato fries and I got the fried okra with my meal.

I asked Daphne how she enjoyed her meal, “I loved it!! They definitely put classy into southern food!”

The Sweet Potato Fries

Like I said I had the meatloaf… OMG it wasn’t fair that I had to go back and work after that meal. I just wanted to enjoy the rest of my day. It was so good and I was so full.

Yes there is meatloaf under the crispy tobacco onion and gravy… Good MAMA it was knock your socks off good!!

I asked Daphne if there was anything else she’d like to tell y’all :

“I loved the art work. It fit the restaurant well. For elegant southern food they should definitely give Sweet Potatoes a try. They have everything from fried green tomatoes to okra. It is delicious! I would go back a hundred times!” I agree with her 1000% and it won’t be so long next time. It was the most enjoyable meal. Yum!!!

First time this has ever happened… the guy’s finger got in the way of the picture. I didn’t notice it until tonight. Oh well!!
