Soul-food restaurants give the impression of a grandma hard at work in the kitchen without a grandpa snoring loudly in the dining room. Sit down to dreamy dining with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of southern fare at Sadie's Soulful Southern Experience.
Sadie's Soulful Southern Experience took home the Steve Harvey Hoodie Awards' Best Soul Food title in 2008 and 2009 for its menu of healthy takes on homestyle favorites. Three fried wings perch atop a sweet-potato waffle in a sweet and savory take on classic chicken and waffles ($9.29), designed to fulfill all three food groups in the FDA's newly simplified food pyramid, and the seas present a dish of delicately spiced blackened salmon ($10.99). The herbaceously inclined can cast a pronged harpoon into the Crazy Apple-Berry salad ($6.99) to spear forkfuls of fresh greens, crunchy apples, dried cranberries, sweet onions, and glazed pecans. Alternatively, mark out the corners of a square meal with any four selections from a roster of 13 sides ($7.49), piling a plate with dishes such as fried corn on the cob, red beans and rice, mac 'n' cheese, or collard greens prepared, like congressional budgets in utopia, without pork.
