If you visit #Chicago
and are in the mood for classic #AfricanAmerican
low country cuisine, make your way over to #PearlsPlace
at 3901 S. Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60653. With dishes straight out of the #EdnaLewis
cookbook, you’ll forget you’re in Chicago and not in a small coastal restaurant in South Carolina. Lewis was a world renowned African-American chef, (look her up) and Pearl’s #shrimp
😷 and sautéed green onions, and of course their chitterlings😷, honor her delicious legacy.I started my journey with the shrimp and cheesy grits with bacon ($9.99); which is so good it can take you from feeling sad, frustrated, or experiencing any negative emotion, into pure elation! I’ve eaten throughout Chicago’s #Blackowned
restaurants, and they consistently surpassed expectations, but Pearl’s Place has the best shrimp and grits in town. Each scrumptious spoon full of grits was smooth with a slight pungent taste from the cheese flavor, giving the shrimp a welcomed flavor boost. By far, my favorite dish on the entire menu.
