A Break From The Storm at Big Poppa's in McGehee.
Lake Village looked closed down, except for an improbably festival in an empty lot, amusements and the like. I passed on and headed up to McGehee, where the Garmin I was using told me I’d find a place called TK’s BBQ and Burgers. It lead me wrong.
An unusual side item came with this dish -- mixed veggies, but not like I’d ever had them anywhere else. The closest approximation I could give you would be veggie pot pie. The carrots and broccoli and such were encased in a lovely brothy custard and topped with a crumbly crust. And I liked it. Gave the plate much more of a comfort food feel.
I find myself interested in making another trip to McGehee to check out Big Poppa’s again. If you make it down that way before I do, you’ll find it at 217 N. 2nd Street. That’s off US 65 a bit. Call ahead, I’m sure they’ll give you directions: (870) 222-3333.
