Eats: SASS in Thomasville, GA
Eating jambalaya by chefs featured on Paul Deen in a converted train depot is next level southern. The experience was made better by how delicious everything was. And thankfully, the cooks knew something was missing from the meal and left that precious secret ingredient on the table for you to add for yourself: Texas Pete. And who knew jambalaya paired with sangria was a quality choice.
My friend Rachel went for the homemade pimento cheese. I had a side of asparagus. I cleaned every plate and glass. And while we sat there, under the high powered AC, surrounded by perfectly elevated and refurbished furniture, heavy wood and plush cushioned seats, we talked enough for our stomachs to free up some space for dessert. She ordered the peach cobbler and I had to go for the beignets, sticking with the New Orleans theme.
The outdoor space was empty on this particularly sweltering day, but on a cooler day sitting under the many fans and between spider plants and other lush green things would be charming. And my experience at SASS (The Sweet and Savory Sisters) wouldn't be complete without taking a photo behind their giant frame hanging outside. I was fed and framed at SASS and gosh darn, I hope to be again.
