The Ugliest Meal in Town?

Posted By on Tue, Sep 23, 2008 at 5:00 AM

Because of International Market, there was Thai food in Nashville by the late 1970s—which seems funny, in retrospect, since Nashville has not traditionally been a foodie town. (But come to think of it, we also had French restaurants back then.)

There's been a noticeable uptick in quality over the last couple of years (though you still occasionally end up with food that has dried out on a steam table). The menu at International Market hasn’t changed much in 30 years, and like a lot of people I usually get the same thing, the combination I call “The Ugliest Meal in Town”: spicy eggplant and curried tofu. Delicious.

If there’s an uglier meal in town, though, I’d like to hear about it.
