Willie Mae’s Scotch House, New Orleans

United States

Extract from New Orleans: Good Times.

The crowds standing outside are patient, content in the knowledge that good things come to those who wait. Good things such as the fried chicken for which Willie Mae’s is famous: tender, moist pieces with a crisp, crunchy batter that’s best partnered with its textural opposite, a side of soft butter beans. Ice tea or house lemonade rounds things off nicely.
