    I would add fried Catfish from port-au-rince in homer, la. And pizza from Johnny's in Louisiana.

      There's a place in Huntsville, Al. that has hot tamales made by a little old man in the delta.
      They're fantastic.

            A recent discussion on northmississippicommenter.com has revealed that the Phillips Grocery in Oxford is vastly inferior to the one in Holly Springs. I have no personal experience in the matter.

            In Jackson, Spice Avenue's Indian cuisine is not to be missed as are the tacos at La Guadalupe. And when it comes to higher end food, Walker's is a safe bet.
