Looking for some fried okra

Is there a restaurant (even if it's a pickup/hole in the wall) that serves authentic southern fried okra, I've gone to a couple of places, but it's just been junk compared the what you can get down South. I miss it so much!
I make mine myself...after living in Houston in the past and am now back in California, I had to...it's real easy...you can buy frozen cut okra at most grocery stores...let them partially defrost. Put in buttermail and strain excess off. Toss in a mixture of half flour and half corn meal with some cajun seasoning and fry in canola oil. Salt when done. I eat it all the time.
