M & M Soulfood in Pasadena
Mmmmmm...you wanna talk about good?
Just discovered this place last weekend, on Washington just off Lake. It's a classic meat-n-three, that could easily exist in some small Georgia town. Meat (smothered porkchops, fried chicken, spareribs, meatloaf, etc.) comes with choice of 3 vegetables (mashed potatoes, greens, blackeyed peas, mac-n-cheese, and so on) and cornbread. They even have sweet tea! Vegatables were obviously cooked long and slow on the stove, and no doubt helped along with a little pork for flavoring. They were a little understaffed (we seemed to be there between rush times), but to say the two guys waiting AND bussing did a bang-up job would be an understatement. Got some sweetpotatopie to go, and it was kind of strange in texture...very dense, kind of tough even, but other than that--top notch!
