The terminus of our travels this day was Jackson, Mississippi’s capitol city. We arrived about 11:30. We pulled into a shopping center parking lot to select a place to have lunch. It turns out that many of TripAdvisor’s top picks are not open on Sunday. However, we found a highly rated place called Two Sisters Kitchen which is downtown, within sight of the capitol building.
Two Sisters Kitchen is a big old clapboard sided house - a little over a hundred years old we were told. Three of the four rooms on the main level and all four on the second floor are smallish dining rooms. We did not know it in advance but there is no menu - it is strictly a buffet. There is a salad bar - which was good but not noteworthy. The main buffet line contained an ample variety of very tasty southern soul food. I tried a little bit of nearly everything they had, including: fried chicken, salisbury steak, creamed corn, blackeyed peas, collard greens, grits, butter beans, succotash, iced tea and, for dessert: bread pudding with bourbon sauce. Those items I would put into the excellent category: fried chicken, creamed corn, collard greens and grits. The bread pudding, however, scored a notch above excellent (regardless of whatever you want to call it). It was powerful sweet - my glucose level probably hit a new record - fortunately, the serving was quite small.
Lunch’s bottom line: I can’t think of a better Sunday dinner in the south than what they serve up at the Two Sisters Kitchen. Thirty-eight bucks with tax and gratuity.
