Re: “Peg Leg Porker

Peg Leg Porker has been on my to-do list ever since returning to Nashville. It's only a short drive from my office, making it the perfect choice for lunch.

Peg Leg's building is a great setup for barbecue, complete with traditional counter-service ordering. The friendly ladies working the counter were lighthearted and very welcoming. They have tons of awards displayed very prominently in glass cases, as well they should. In the back is a well-stocked bar, which looked like a great option for happy hour.

With no multi-meat combos on the menu (or beef for that matter), I was torn between ribs and pulled pork. In the end, I went with a Pulled Pork Platter and decided to save the ribs for another time when I wasn't wearing a shirt and tie. For my sides, I picked potato salad and smoked green beans.

The skins mixed into the potato salad added a good texture to the mayonnaise base. There was just the right amount of salt and pepper, giving the potato salad a nice mild flavor. The big flat green beans were also a great side dish. I could definitely taste the black pepper here, and bacon always makes things better.

I'm not usually a huge fan of pulled pork, but this looked amazing! There were beautiful pieces of black bark and red smoke-kissed bits scattered throughout. The pork had a delicious smokiness from the first bite all the way through to the last, and it was also incredibly tender. The forkfuls of bark were by far my favorite, especially the juicy, well-rendered fat. No sauce was needed here whatsoever. If all pulled pork was like this, I'd definitely eat it more often.

This was certainly enough food to fill me up, but there was no way I could pass on a peach fried pie for dessert. The sugary glaze drizzled on top was quite enticing. To my delight, the pie was fresh and warmed. Their flaky crust and gooey peach filling were perfect together, and the cinnamon spice made things even better. This was a fantastic end to a fantastic lunch.

I can't wait to come back to Peg Leg Porker and try the ribs!

Re: “Thai Esane

Thai Esane is shockingly delicious. The flavors are amazingly complex, the food is beautiful and fresh, and every single staff person with whom we have dealt has been beyond courteous. It's not the fastest place to eat sometimes, but that's what happens when a restaurant cooks and serves real food. We probably eat Thai Esane once a week. Husband and I have been there for date night but we also have taken our 2 young daughters and found it to be equally friendly in both scenarios. Thank you Thai Esane for delivering - SO glad we live within the magic 3 mile radius.
