I'm not one to write restaurant reviews - I feel like I'm not qualified - but I do love taking pictures of food and sharing with you how delicious (or not so delicious) a meal was. Is that a restaurant review? Yeah probably. Today I want to write about a little restaurant in the Inman Square neighborhood of Cambridge that serves "comfort food with a southern drawl." I'm all about comfort food, and Tupelo has this down pat, even down to the mason jars for water.
Dave and I first ordered the cajun gumbo to share, and goodness was it amazing. We must have looked like giggling kids dipping our cornbread into the hot deliciousness that was the gumbo. For our meals Dave got the fried chicken served with jalapeno mac and cheese, smoky bacon gravy, and collard greens. I got the daube of beef brisket with hominy mashed potatoes, herb roasted root vegetables and horseradish cream. Although my beet-stained vegetables were incredibly unattractive and hard to eat, the brisket was perfect - flavorful and tender - Dave's fork couldn't stay on his plate. The meals were decently priced and our bill came out to under $50.
We'll definitely be visiting again - I must try the desserts!
