Fried Chicken Po’ Boy

Tastemaker
By Jillian Manning | Jan. 25, 2020

Perfectly crisp fried chicken. Fresh warm bread. Honey jalapeno mayonnaise. (And then lettuce, onion, and tomato, because vegetables are supposed to be important.) This is the Fried Chicken Po’ Boy at Pearl’s New Orleans Kitchen in Elk Rapids. For those who haven’t been, Pearl’s has all the Cajun and Creole comfort food you’ve ever dreamed of — for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch. The po’ boys are not to be missed, especially since they’re only $5.99 on Wednesdays until Memorial Day. Grab a cozy booth, sample half a dozen hot sauces, and choose any of the five po’ boys on the menu. The fried chicken gets our vote for a winter warm-up, especially when paired with a cup of their famous gumbo and complimentary jalapeno cornbread. And if you still have room after all that, need we say more than hot fudge sundae beignet? Let the good times roll. Find Pearl’s New Orleans Kitchen at 617 Ames St. in Elk Rapids, (231) 264-0530, www.magnumhospitality.com/pearls
