4 Local Dishes To Try this Month

Our contributing food fanatics share the local dishes that made them hungry for more.

The Berkshire Pork Chop from The Fairhope Inn

“I am always torn between the Berkshire pork chop and the veal chop because they are both so delicious. Each is beautifully frenched and grilled to perfection, which results in a very flavorful, moist, and butter knife-tender veal chop and a succulent, juicy, deliciously firm, but never tough, pork chop. The chops are accompanied by a light sauce that does not mask the meat’s flavor. Choose something from the Inn’s wonderful wine list, and you’ll be in for the perfect evening. — Mary Kay Webb, Retired, Senior Executive Vice President, Marketing, Medical Device and Imaging Technologies
The Fairhope Inn • 63 S Church St., Fairhope. 928-6226

“Green curry is my litmus test for quality Thai food. This rich curry came with loads of fresh shrimp and a vegetable bounty that included perfectly cooked bamboo shoots, green peppers, carrots and lots of basil. This is a fiery curry that set my lips to tingling, in a good way. Their crab fried rice made with claw meat is the best on the Gulf Coast (and there isn’t a close second). They currently have tables set up outside as their only dine-in option.” — Michael Druhan, Owner, Rock the Float Mardi Gras Throws
Taste of Thai • Original Irvington location has closed; new location opening soon in West Mobile

“A French dip sandwich is commonplace on menus across the country, but do NOT confuse Nixon’s Midtown dip sandwich with anything commonplace. Juicy roast beef, melted swiss cheese topped with caramelized onions and homemade horseradish aioli would have made a succulent sandwich by itself; then you dip the combination in Nixon’s rich, homemade au jus sauce, and you are transported to hoagie heaven.” — Will Cooksey, Chief Operating Officer, Preload
Nixon’s Midtown • 1801 Old Shell Road. 586-8780

“They offer two sizes of seafood combo at Boiling Pot. Both come with mouthwatering shrimp and oysters (you can opt out of the oysters), fried with great seasoning. The large combo also comes with fish. I love the fried white fish. It’s crunchy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. You are not going to be disappointed. And with the large combo, your next lunch is taken care of!” — Enen Yu, Co-concertmaster, Mobile Symphony Orchestra
Boiling Pot • 3704 Airport Blvd. 345-0749
