You can’t find a whole lot of good Southern food in Los Angeles, but you can find some decent hush puppies at a few barbeque joints. These are the ones I had from Mr. Cecil’s tonight, and they were amazing, even though there was not a drop of Carolina Gold in sight. Kind of like deep-fried balls of cornbread, this version is sweet & spicy, flecked with hot pepper. Now if only I could find a decent BLFGT – Bacon, Lettuce, Fried Green Tomato sandwich!
