It's a Friday
tradition in the Low Country. Red Rice and Fish.
My cab drive told that the best place for Red Rice and
Fish is the H & R Sweet Shop in old Mount Pleasant.
It's actually the H&R
Sweet Shop and Beauty Parlor. They are side by side
and there's a door between them in case a customer needs a
snack before going under the hair dryer.
is a Gullah version of Dirty Rice. The red comes from
tomatoes. Chunks of Sausage, diced bell pepper and onion
too. The fish is fried whiting. A few fried unshelled tiny
shrimp along side.
If it's not Friday,
go for the hamburger. Solid eating. Or for
supper, the fried fish, shrimp or chicken.
