I was excited to read about Kristi Brown’s new dining spot in the Liberty Bank Building. I have long admired what she does with everyday food; who would have thought that black-eyed peas could be fashioned into an enticing hummus? Communion is open for takeout only given all the restrictions in our pandemic climate. I ordered a Po’ Mi, which pretty much described my mood. This is Kristi’s creation that marries The Southern Po’ Boy with the Asian Banh Mi. I love Banh Mi, but my husband always says he’s still hungry after eating one: too many vegetables. This one would not disappoint! It was fried catfish (and a lot of it) with a generous dose of slivered veggies: cucumbers, daikon & carrots, grilled jalapeños, house made pate with a tangy remoulade.
My husband ordered the roasted rib tips & bone broth which Brown calls An Ode to Pho. It was filling and spicy; it seemed like he had two meals from this creation with grilled rib tips, rice noodles, broccoli, eggplant and oyster mushrooms.
This was the first time I have taken communion since I left the Lutheran Church in 1958, but I will be back for more.
