The classic comfort food of the deep South comes to Maryland via Carolina Kitchen. The eatery uses homestyle recipes to recreate the hearty dishes of the Carolinas and beyond, including many Cajun and Creole plates. So, when you’re craving stick-to-your-ribs soul food, the chef at Carolina Kitchen has you covered.
Regulars rave about the Southern fried chicken, which comes a few different ways. You can order it perched atop a pillow of mashed potatoes and smothered with house-made gravy or nestled on a sweet potato waffle. The chef also stuffs it inside a sandwich and serves it in the form of spicy wings. The menu also offers other home-style meals like Mom’s Meatloaf, Creole baked fish, and jerk chicken. They all pair well with sides such as mac and cheese and collard greens.
