While I was in Memphis, Tennessee touring St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, I had a chance to eat at the oldest restaurant in town: The Arcade Restaurant. The establishment, which is just a short walk from The Lorraine Motel, has been around since 1919 and now has a historical marker in front of it. Elvis was apparently a regular, and you can even order his favorite Fried Peanut Butter ‘N Banana sandwich:
I seriously considered ordering this so that I could say that I ate what Elvis got, but we were there for breakfast and for some reason, eating peanut butter first thing in the morning just makes me feel gross – I guess that’s a culinary quirk of mine! Fortunately, one of my pals ordered this and let me take a photo of hers! You know you’re dining with bloggers when several people are standing around taking photos of a sandwich.
I ended up ordered the “Eggs Redneck”, because I love biscuits and gravy. It did not disappoint!
Another friend shared her Beignets and they, too, were delicious! If you’re going to Memphis, you won’t want to miss eating here.
