|Name this restaurant!|
But memories are funny things. I still have fond recollections of a family-owned fried chicken restaurant in Kansas City, Kansas, called Mrs. Peters Fried Chicken. But not everyone loved the place as much as I did. "The side dishes and biscuits were good," says my friend Ed, "but the chicken was lousy."
Lousy? It was great! Of course, I missed out on a lot of iconic restaurants that people are still talking about, including the legendary Gold Buffet! So in honor of The Corner Restaurant, the Gold Buffet and all the other once-famous places that have disappeared into the mists of time, here's a culinary quiz to test your memory.
The first Fat City reader that lists all five correct answers in the Comments section below this post wins a fabulous collectible prize!
That's right, the winner will receive the 1954 edition of Pillsbury's 100 Grand National Recipes, a trove of culinary treasures including such celebrated recipes as Prune Whip Spice Cake, Blueberry Boy-Bait and Ye Old Saffron Braids!
