Eat This: Flying Sobie’s Fried Cornish Game Hen

Posted by Holly Whitfield | February 6th 2019 1984 0

You ever eat a dish so tasty, so unique, or so masterfully crafted, that you think about it for a long time after?

The fried Cornish game hen and waffle I had for brunch from the Flying Sobie’s food truck is one of those kinds of meals for me: memorable, satisfying, and above all, delicious. To be completely honest, I’ve been thinking about it for years since I first tried it.

Seek out Flying Sobie’s at Ghost River Brewing’s downtown taproom every Sunday, where they serve up the deep-fried mini-chickens with your choice of sauces including Buffalo, Original, Memphis Gold, Spicy Gold, and more. I’m personally a fan of the Memphis Gold.

The batter is crispy and well-seasoned, the meat tender and juicy, and you can get a combo with a waffle or with seasoned fries. Pair it with a “beer-mosa” from Ghost River, which is also served on Sundays. (Read more about the taproom here.)

You can also find Flying Sobie’s at Food Truck Thursday at Court Square sometimes, and follow them on Instagram for more appearances.
