Staying true to my southern roots, I opted for the Chicken.Set.Go. After all, it had all of my favorite food groups. This biscuit was served with fried chicken and topped with pimento cheese, jalapenos and drizzled with the slightest bit of sorghum.  The sweet and savory combo was a major win for me, and I loved how the flavors were layered.  Can we talk about the pickled okra on the side?  I could eat it by the jar.  I loved adding it to each bite of my biscuit.

Luckily, I have friends who are kind enough to share, so I had a chance to sample several of the signature biscuits. Finding out that the Kickback Chicken was a staff favorite, we knew that one of us would have to order it. This biscuit was served with fried chicken and covered with goat cheese, green onion and sweet pepper jelly which gave it the perfect kick!

If you want to stick to those New Year Resolutions, I recommend ordering the Flying Frittata made with egg whites, roasted veggie frittata, kale, herbed Greek yogurt and to kick it up a notch, a dash of hot sauce. Watching your calories? You can order any of the signature biscuits with only half of a biscuit, or you can choose to have them served over a bed of kale. How yummy does this look!?

Last but not least, let’s hit the sweet spot, shall we?  Smothered with Nutella and raspberry jam, was The Jam.  What a flavor combo! And of course you have to have a little savory to go with the sweet, so what better than a Tot Bowl to the rescue.  Melted cheddar cheese, green onion, and bacon covered each nook and cranny of the tater tots.  To top it off?  What about a little bit of the Hollerback sauce.  Perfection!

Holler and Dash have four locations, and Nashville was fortunate enough to get the first expansion outside of Alabama.  They are open daily from 7:00am-2:00 pm. Swing by and check it out!  You can thank me later! 🙂

Nashville is not limited to honky tonks, hipsters and hot chicken. My name is Catherine Courtney and I am Nashville native here to highlight the culinary delights that my hometown has to offer. When I was a little girl, dining out options were limited. Chain restaurants like Captain D’s, Shoney’s and Waffle House (although I do love a good grilled cheese from WH) were the only things my hometown had to offer. Growing up, my family had traditional dinners or “suppers” as we sometimes call them in the south. Most of you all know them as the standard meat and three. And yes- mac and cheese counts as a vegetable in the south. Any time my mom would venture outside the box and try something new, I would whine and say “tell me you aren’t experimenting on me again?” Needless to say, my palate and my outlook on food has evolved. In the last 15 years, I’ve discovered that food and travel are the embers that keep my soul on fire. Both have allowed me to become more mindful and adventurous. I am obsessed with finding the best craft beer and the most unique and creative food a place has to offer, regardless of where it is. Time is our greatest commodity. Why spend it eating mediocre food? It is my hope to share Nashville’s culinary evolution as well as my epicurean adventures throughout the world.
