I tried out Carmen’s Country Kitchen for the first time on Friday morning. These days I have the luxury of being able to sit for an hour at breakfast before “work” (read: internship) starts. The person I was supposed to meet never showed, which turned out to be a small blessing in disguise.
I spent the next hour chatting with Carmen herself. She is an amazing woman, full of great stories, neighborhood gossip and advice. There is no need to go into the food here on this blog — enough has been written about it on Yelp. The reviewers are right. It is indeed delicious and massive.
Unfortunately, Carmen’s will be closing in December. A neighborhood staple will be replaced by a pizza shop, and Carmen will be moving down to the Carolinas to be closer to her grandchildren. Her hours are pretty crazy before the move date, but if you get a chance, go before it’s too late
