Charlotte: Dish

The Dish, in Charlotte, NC is a little slice of southern heaven. It’s on the southeast side of town, about 2 miles outside downtown. I asked the server what to order and she mentioned that we (my bff, who lives in Charlotte, and I) should split a couple of items: The salmon patties and chicken & dumplings. It’s exactly what Diners Drive-Ins and Dives showed on their episode, so I was skeptical.

But it was good! My mom used to make salmon patties. Sorry mom, but not like this. They clean the fresh salmon each time they make these. Eggs, whole grain mustard, mayo, celery, lemon juice and zest, dill, Worcestershire sauce and buttered white bread crumbs are mixed together, they form the patties, coat in panko and throw it on the flat top. Served with Honey Orange Butter – this is a must on the salmon patties. Delish. They were moist and full of salmon without too much bread filer.

The Chicken and Dumplings have simple flavors with a thick, peppery White and dark shredded roasted chicken and tender scratch made dumplings with a peppery finish.

Our sides were turnip greens, mac & cheese and squash casserole. All wonderful, specifically the casserole. Their biscuits should have been featured on Triple D. I asked for a half dozen to take home with me to my husband. Light and fluffy, moist and great with some butter and raspberry jam.

If you are ever in Charlotte, you’ve gotta go to Dish and don’t feel silly ordering what was on tv – it’s worth it.
