Shrimp & Grits for breakfast - Dee-licious!

Visited the South several years ago but don't recall any of the grits I had back there being as good as the breakfast I had this morning.
Shrimp, grits, and brown gravy (sounds disgusting, I know!) but it was just heavenly. Savored this bowl of southern satisfaction at The Hangout in Seal Beach (on the corner of Main across from the pier).

    I had asked for this very thing several years back.

    1. Brown gravy? Like Chinese brown gravy? Or?

        Hard to describe effectively; between medium & dark brown, not heavy, thinner than regular gravy. Tasty in its own way but not overpowering.

        Just had Cajun shrimp and cheesy grits elsewhere for comparison (no gravy included), paying $3 more, and did not like it as much, although I did appreciate that the shrimp were shelled. I won't name this place but it was east of the 55 freeway. But the d├ęcor was fun, service quite good.

        Will have to check out Dommy's suggestion next . . . (thanks!)

      2. Although it's not for breakfast and quite pricy... we loved the Shrimp and Grits at Bar/Kitchen... it's actually quite the substantial dish...
