My senior year of college and the couple years after graduation, my friends and I used to spend a lot of time in Memphis on the weekends. We had so much fun on Beale Street just dancing, listening to music and being silly.
On one of my very first trips to Memphis, probably around 1997, we ate at the Blues City Cafe and I discovered what has become an obsession . . . their Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms ($6.95). These little caps of joy are so sweet, delicious, buttery, fatty and yummy that I kid you not when I joined the Army in 1999, I would literally dream about Blues City Cafe's Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms. They are so delicious. They are cooked in and come out in an 8-inch iron skillet full of melting, hot butter and they are just divine.
Last year Scott had business in Memphis and, of course, I wanted to go. We had our meals planned for the entire weekend but I made him take me to Blues City Cafe right before we left so I could have my mushrooms. Scott didn't even eat that day, he just sat there and watched me having a blissful heart attack with my butter-cooked Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms.
Let me know if any of you have been or if you go in the future. I'd like to hear what other people think about the places that I love.
