Hey guys! We’re back today with the Hellacious Belle’s guide to Southern Food and Bevs, ’cause whoo hoo! We just got us a Hattie B’s in the ATL and I wanted to share.
Hattie B’s is a purveyor of Nashville Hot Chicken, which is a type of fried chicken made famous in the Music City, that’s marinated in spices, crispy fried and sauced again with a pepper-based paste.
Nashville Hot Chicken is usually served with white bread and some pickle chips and ranges from mild, “Southern” heat to “Burn Notice” style, STCU.
Our branch of Hatti B’s has been open maybe a month or two but the lines are still wrapped around the block at lunch and dinner. I’ll pass for now on a wait for a plate and instead try my luck making my own fiery fried cluck, with a recipe courtesy of the Food Network.
In a way that somebody else converts to Judaism or becomes a Hare Krishna, I belong to the church of fried chicken. – Padma Lakshmi
