Restaurant review part deux: Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar in Dallas
This buttermilk chicken was pump and juicy.
For National Fried Chicken Day in early July, we wanted to check out Dallas’ newest bucket joint, Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar. Believe us that anything fried is on our bucket list, and when we heard you can get a 10 piece bucket plus sides for $20, we jumped all over it. Sissy’s dishes up food so good it would make you want to Slap. Yo. Mama.
First up was the Lump Crab Cake. The cake itself was proper: moist, succulent, and not oily. The gribiche sauce paired perfect with the crab. Tangy but not tart. The garnish on the other hand had so many stems, Snoop Dog wouldn’t know want to do with it. Sissy, how 'bout you keep the stems in the garden, eh?
Side dish of baked mac and cheese did hit the spot. It was served in a cast iron dish kept the cheese warm and gooey -- comfort only a mama could deliver -- and now ... Sissy’s. But in proportion to the bucket of chicken, we wished the sides came GLUT-sized. Even an anorexic high-school cheerleader would be craving more.
Now what we came here for … the CHICKEN. There was something amazing about seeing a silver bucket not full of cervezas, but filled to the brim with the best breasts to come out of the South since Dolly Parton’s double D’s. The house chili sauce was an added bonus to the bucket. No booty hurt here, this sauce was perfectly balanced. Sissy’s cooks the chicken in a pressure cooker, which is sort of sacrilegious to the traditional down South cast iron pan frying. But shut-the-church-down, this buttermilk chicken was pump and juicy. We called it Pump & Juicy. #2Chainz
Better Then Sex Chocolate Chocolate Cake ... ummmmm, don’t think so. I dunno who you’ve been “cookin’ in the kitchen with,” but this cake is second base at the most. It was good, it was rich, it was moist, but better than sex? Nope.
Trust us, we will be coming back to Sissy’s. We loved it. Shoot, maybe even show her a trick or two in the “kitchen” ...
