Miss Peaches Southern Cuisine

In the midst of antique shops on Lankershim Blvd. is a  soul food restaurant I had only learned of on Monday. Mike Fabio’s photos were more than enough to convince me to drive to North Hollywood for some soul food I didn’t make myself.  Miss Peaches Southern Cuisine was well worth the trek from the eastside.

I am not a fan of Roscoe’s. I think the food is pretty bad; on par with Aunt Kizzy’s Front Porch. My preferred method of eating what I consider home-cooking is to make it myself or wait until I can visit family to get it done right. Soul food restaurants in LA just always seem to be lacking something for my palate. So, to say that I was delighted to bite into the chicken that’s perfectly seasoned and not greasy would be an understatement. I actually picked it up to eat it with my hands. I don’t do that in public. The macaroni & cheese was good and didn’t leave a lump in my belly. Note that my kids also ate the mac ‘n’ cheese and they are ridiculously picky when it comes to baked mac. But what surprised me the most were the greens. I’m used to greasy and old tasting greens being served. These were fresh and slightly sweet. Restaurant owner & chef, Connell Moss, said it was because he doesn’t use meat in them.

I have never found the appeal of the chicken & waffle combination. I like them both, but separately. Knowing how unpredictable my kids are when it comes to what they eat, I ordered the combo for them to share. Surprisingly, they both ate both items. It wasn’t until the end ofthe meal, when I snagged a piece of waffle off their plate did I understand. Simply put, Miss Peaches makes some damn delectable waffles. I would be hard pressed to come up with a restaurant in Los Angeles that makes waffles as good.

It looks like I need to had back over to North Hollywood for work. The idea of not going back hasn’t even cross my mind.

  1. Roscoes is definitely inconsistent – I’ve had some of the driest chicken ever there, but also some of the best meals… and my one visit to Aunt Kizzy’s was quite pleasant. That said, I’m pretty excited now about Miss Peaches… thanks for the heads up.

  2. There was a place in S. San Gabriel that was supposed to be really good (not that I would know) but it went out of business. Much closer to the Eastside too. Yay for El Serenoans! :)

  3. I haven’t even SEEN food like this since I moved from Atlanta to LA in 2003. I. Am. So. There.

  4. There was a place on Main St. in Alhambra called Angel’s Soul Food that is now out of business. El Chavo, is that where you’re talking about? That place had good chicken (a little salty) and okay mac, but everything else wasn’t that wonderful. I’m told there’s places in Pasadena too, but considering how bad the BBQ is there, I’m not rushing over until I hear from someone I trust. There is a place in Altadena that’s open randomly. Little room in a white clapboard building. I think it’s on Hill, but not sure.
