Our friends from Norway, die-hard fans of Mississippi Blues music, made their first trip to the U.S. recently. They were visiting the South and part of the Blues Trail (New Orleans, Clarksdale (we sent them to Ramon’s and Abe’s) and Oxford).
Thursday night in Oxford found us at Thacker Mountain Radio for great Southern music and story telling. We then introduced them to some southern specialties that Ajax Diner does so well: fried dill pickles with comeback sauce, crispy fried catfish and hushpuppies, jalapeno cornbread and greens.
Our friends loved the Ajax atmosphere—especially the art—and were great sports about trying all of the unfamiliar foods. While I don’t think there will be a sudden demand for potlikker in Norway, you never know.
