After the debacle that was the family visit to the waterfront Philips "Flagship", I was left to wonder if this was the "flagship" what were the rest? Shit Barges? Anywho...I need to redeem myself with the 'rents. I had heard from friends that the Hitching Post was good, I decided to give it a try. Comfort food for a low key Friday with my Southern parents...seems like a match. Let me say that the place lacks for decor but has that family owned, neighbor frequented, been around for a long time feel, I like it, it's quaint. It also isn't fast, but then rarely is good food on your table quickly. It took about an hour for our four top to get three "1/2" orders of fried chicken and an order of fried Porgy. The portions were huge and cooked to order by one guy who seemed more than happy to be cooking right in front of us. The chicken was hot, crisp and had a shell that when peirced oozed juice and steam. Perfectly fried, could have used a bit more salt but that was easily fixed. Dad had the Porgy which was not one fish but two huge fish split and fried, read: four....HUGE....fillets. The fish was moist, delish and easy to de bone. All had the greens of the day which were collards, cooked sans meat but good non the less. Two had the mac and cheese which was also tasty. Dad had potato salad and Mom also had the broccoli. The broccoli was wonderful. Steamed perfectly and season with just salt and a lil bit of butter it was also the size of my head. Needless to say we all had some broccoli. The pot salad was also tasty if a little meally. All told for 4 sweet teas, three chicken dinners and a porgy we paid.......wait for it......$67.00!!!!! By the way....I don't know what chicken has four legs but my "half" had one breast, one thigh, one wing and two legs...nice, mutant chickens are out and about and noone else told me......I can't rave anymore about what a great value this was and how good the food was.....Go and get it.....enjoy it and tell your friends about it.......There are other things like fried shrimp, gumbo, beans and pork neck, sea trout and various sandwiches but I think the ckicken is the thing.....gotta go and eat a piece now......
According to the Prince of Petworth, a new Indian Restaurant has just opened in Petworth. I am somewhat skeptical about anything with the word "fusion" in it, but it appears to have a great pedigree - click.
