I have driven by Mama Josephine's many times and always think….I need to try that place out. Well yesterday I was on my way to Sasha's on Shaw for lunch with an out-of-town guest….and decided to try Mama Josephine's instead. I am so happy that I did. The place is heaven. They serve soul/ comfort food. Every item was perfect…from the best macaroni & cheese….to delectable cornbread…to "fried" cabbage…..and perfect fried chicken. My guest has the chicken and dumplings…..which I did try and loved! The service was so pleasant….they even let us try a little Kool-aid pie that they created. It was not on the menu, though one of the cooks was experimenting. You have to go! I can't wait to go back!
Afterwards, we took a nice walk around the Missouri Botanical Garden to work off the calories.
