Hubby and I were in town visiting our friends and they suggested Southern Kin, which was really close to where we stayed in Somerville. I ordered the Paloma, which was delicious and perfectly boozy and tart to go with the Malted Buttermilk Waffle with fresh berries. I was originally going to order the Gullah Breakfast and I'm glad I didn't. I come from a southern family, specifically Gullah, and grits is a staple in our household and I'm pretty particular about them. My husband ordered the So'kin Benedict, which came with a side of grits and it just looked like a lump of nothing. I originally thought it was potato salad. I did try some and the texture, to me, was all wrong and very little flavor. Grits should be creamy and hot and most importantly, have salt. Our friends commented that they tried a grits dish, but that it wasn't memorable. That's not to say the other dishes that feature grits aren't great. I just did not try those dishes. On the plus side, we were able to sit inside but by one of the sliding doors so we had a nice summer breeze while we ate. I would return here again the next time we are in town and would try a dish where the grits are the main feature to see if that would make a difference.
