MIDWEST FOOD IN LONG BEACH
I'M SO CAL,BORN/RAISED L.A.,TORRANCE,GARDENA AND NOW LONG BEACH. MY WIFE IOWA BORN/RAISED ON THE MISSISSIPPI IN A TOWN THE SIZE OF MY BUTT.I'VE BEEN THERE AND THO' IT'S A GREAT PLACE,BUT WHAT STICKS IN MY MIND ARE TWO THINGS.......1.CATFISH 2.PORK TENDERLOINS.......WITH ALL THE IOWAN'S NOW LIVING HERE
HOPEFULLY SOME OF YOU CAN HELP ME WITH A PLACE HERE LOCALLY WHERE I CAN PURCHASE THESE FOODS. JOHNNY REB'S IS AS CLOSE AS WE'VE FOUND FOR THE CAT, BUT THE TENDERLOIN IS NOT HERE(PADDY O'S IN TORRANCE HAS SOMETHING SIMILAR,TASTY, BUT NOT QUITE THE SAME).
I WONT EVEN MENTION "MADE-RITES", JUST WANTING A LEAD ON THE CAT AND TENDERLOINS. THANKS AND HOPE TO HERE SOME GOOD NEWS.....JW
For catfish I recommend Uncle Als Seafood on First St in Long Beach. When Uncle Al himself is not there the service leaves something to be desired, but the cornmeal fried catfish melts in your mouth. He also has salmon burgers that I swear to God taste like ground beef, bizarre!
A close second would be M & Ms soul food (on Avalon in Carson), but be sure to avoid the location on Cherry---retch!
