Memphis Restaurants That I Miss

1. Los Compadres was once a Cuban restaurant. I don't know the name of it because it was the only Cuban restaurant and therefore we just called it "The Cuban Restaurant." I miss it more than I can convey.

2. Peking Chinese Restaurant that was once in the back of Poplar Plaza.

3. Lam Hung on Madison - it is probably still a Chinese/Vietnamese place, but it's not the same.

4. Grisanti's on Airways - I think it was the original one.

5. Mojo's on Highland - had THE BEST baba ganoush.

6. Audubon Cafe on Park

7. Buntyn when it was on Southern

8. Bon-Ton

9. Cafe Francisco

10. The Hungry Fisherman

Cafe Fransisco was a really great environment. I thought it was a little pricey, but it was definitely a great place to read the paper or get some work done.

Cafe Francisco had a sandwich with prosciutto on it. I think that's what I miss most.

I really loved that Cuban place too. The pork plate with the plantains and black beans was to die for.

The poplar plaza restaurant was called "The Peking Inn"--(peeking in)What a great name.

The Cuban restaurant (I forget the name too) was actually its second restaurant. The original is on Lamar, in a strip mall, south of Winchester (on the south side of Lamar), near a Mexican bakery/ panaderia. Don't know if they are still there though, but it might be worth the search for you.
