First she was a Lakers Girl. Then she broke out and became Chef Marilyn. Forward 20 years she’s giving LA a present for her big cookery anniversary. “99 Cent Soul Food Buffet” with a whole slew of new stuff on top of her regular menu. “99 Cent Gumbo” got my attention but per the vid we can expect a lot of creole treats as well as traditional ‘weezeeanna soul food cooked up special for this weekend.
Chef Marilyn’s Soul Food Express in South LA is celebrating March 6,7,8 from 6AM to midnight (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) with a 99 cent only menu. That’s right, huge fillets of baked catfish, smothered oxtail and collard greens are just some of the entrees for this anniversary.
Special thanks to Billy aka “99 Cent Chef” for the heads up and his own thoughts on the matter. “…and who but The 99 Cent Chef takes you into the heart and soul of Chef Marilyn’s unique Los Angeles temple to budget Southern and Creole gastronomy. She also shares, in a 99 Cent Chef video exclusive, all the “extra” off-menu dishes she has in store for anniversary celebrants and how she came up with the 99 cent menu concept; hint – think egg rolls. Welcome to my neighborhood, and view the video to see how Chef Marilyn and The 99 Cent Chef roll — South of the 10 Freeway!”
Details: March 6, 7, 8 2009, 6AM – midnight, Chef Marilyn’s Soul Food Express, 2638 Crenshaw Blvd, Los Angeles (just south of the 10).
