Seriously? Maple syrup in grits. That is wrong on so many levels. Grits get salt/pepper and lots of hot sauce with a slab of butter the size of your head. Add that to salt on watermelon, soy sauce on white rice and pineapple on pizza as combos that I don't understand.


Just saw this... soy sauce on white rice freaks me out too... >>shudder<<<<

I put butter on white rice, but not soy. Is that freaky?

Yes. Everyone knows Maggi is the only thing that belongs on white rice.

Only by default because Maggi belongs on *everything*.

Fried grits with maple syrup. :w00t: I'm still full from the steak club I had at lunch and now I want to go back to Pine State and get grits. :rolleyes: Mmmmm. Been meaning to try the pine state fried club. "Trio of fried grit cakes topped with fried chicken and spiced honey, pimento cheese, fried green tomato and aged white cheddar wrapped in country ham". Maybe next week.

Inappropriate use of soy sauce always makes me think of the scene in "The Joy Luck Club" when the gwailo elects to improve the host's cooking with a spray of soy sauce on the entire platter. My mother would have put a chop stick through his head.

Maple syrup on fried (not creamy) grits was one of my favorite breakfast things as a kid. My dad picked it up while in South Carolina during his army years. I always assumed that syrup was not an unusual addition for this style of grits.

Had it for lunch today. Three little stacks of fried grits, one topped with the chicken and honey, one with fried green tomato and pimento cheese and the third with cheese rolled in a slice of ham. They were all great but the pimento cheese was awesome. :drool:

Just thought I'd share this info- Eater reported that the 11th & Division outpost would be open by the end of the month (Nov '13). Overheard some employees of PSB discussing this article and essentially dismissing it... Sounds like buildout of the old garage there is moving slowly and it may be pushed back into the new year. Sounds like they've been inundated with calls etc. and it's caused a bit of annoyance on their end.

Haven't been inside yet, but the new Pine State on SE Division and 11th is finally actually really truly open for business. Current hours: 7am - 3pm daily (with night hours planned for the future).

I went in today for breakfast. They're fully open—just not advertising it as far as I can see. Note that the entrance is on 11th; if you're standing on the Division side, you may not even notice that there's a restaurant there at all.

 

The space is small, so as soon as the word gets out, it'll be as cramped as ever. The menu seemed about 2-3 sandwiches bigger than before (I might be misremembering it). There was literally no one there this morning when we went in. Service was great, food good as always.

 

Go while it's flying under the radar.
