The King’s Kitchen and Bakery
The first thing you should know about The King’s Kitchen is that it doesn’t just serve great food in a homely setting. It makes a difference to the society it is in. A non-profit restaurant, The King’s Kitchen employs Charlotte-dwellers who are trying to set in the society after having faced life-threatening situations. They even donate 100% of their profits in their endeavor to feed the poor. That’s beside the fact that they exclusively use farm-produced ingredients.
That’s not to say though, that their food is mediocre. If anything, their Southern cuisine makes for some of the best in Uptown Charlotte, where it is located. Dishes to try include the ‘Crunchy Honey Mustard Slaw On A House-Made Ciabatta Bun’ and ‘Buttermilk-Dipped And -Battered Fried Chicken Breast’. Do try their renowned fried chicken sandwich – they’re really famous for serving this one.
The mission-oriented restaurant does not have a very grand setting, but what they have makes their customers feel very homely and welcome. They even have a grab-and-go counter you can make use of in case you are out of time, and a bakery that sells a wide variety of bread and cakes.
