Authentic hush puppies in Savannah?
I'll be in Savannah next Sunday and would love to have some authentic hush puppies. (A search of these boards revealed only one thread talking about a restaurant's LACK of hush puppies.) We'll be in the historic district and will not have a car. Thanks in advance.
The Oyster Bar on River Street should have them. The one on Wilmington Island does, as does the Elegant Pelican, same owner. They're mildly sweet and served with honey butter. They're gratis with entrees, served as an appetizer. I've seen people ruin their appetite for dinner by overdoing the hush puppies.
I can't vouch for the current quality of the rest of the menu. You can go in and just order a basket of hush puppies and a beverage.
I've noticed hushpuppies on the menu more often in Charleston than in Savannah. I'm not a local nor a Southerner so I have no explanation (truthy or otherwise) about why this is. A quick look at the menus of Mrs Wilkes and Lady and Sons does not yield any hushpuppies.
