Brenda's French Soul Food information
Chef-owner Brenda Buenviaje blends New Orleans–style Creole cooking with French technique to create 'French soul food.' Expect updated classics like red beans and rice, serious biscuits and grits, amazing Hangtown fry (eggs scrambled with bacon and fried oysters), good shrimp-stuffed po' boys, and fried chicken served with collard greens and hot-pepper jelly. Take the fire off the spicy cooking with sweet-watermelon tea.
Two doors down, Brenda operates a takeaway sandwich shop with her watermelon pickles – great gifts for the foodies on your list.
