WESTERN KENTUCKY: Fried chicken
Louisville is fried chicken country. Nearly every restaurant, humble or fancy, has its own special version. One of the most humble—and the best—is the Bon-Ton Mini Mart. As the name implies, this snack shop was once a common convenience store. Preparers marinate the chicken before frying it up, resulting in meat that's dripping-moist and infused with a salt-and-pepper smack. The crust is dark, brittle, and vividly spiced. It's served up with biscuits, and we suggest following it with a taste of chess pie, allegedly named because it's so simple—"jes' pie"—little more than butter, sugar, and eggs.
