Foodie Friday: Southern Kin Cookhouse

I’m honestly not a big fan of southern food. It just doesn’t do it for me. I’m more of a pizza/chimichanga/sushirito kind of girl. So the first time I went to Southern Kin Cookhouse with my family, my expectations weren’t very high. And boy did I play myself.

Southern Kin Cookhouse has easily become one of my favorite restaurants. They’re smack dab in the middle of Somerville’s Assembly Row, and are well worth the trek. I literally don’t like ribs. And I don’t like cornbread. But I finished the rack on top of the bucket in less than two minutes, and constantly have to remind myself not to fill up on cornbread before the main course whenever I go there. I don’t understand it and I can’t explain it, but they get it right. They put modern, creative twists on soul food staples and most importantly, serve in great portions.

Speaking of portions, another thing I love about Southern Kin is that they have options like pitchers of alcoholic sweet tea and buckets of ribs, chicken, and biscuits. Like, this is the America I signed up for. This is America I deserve.

The creativity isn’t limited to their entrees or appetizers though. They have a robust drink menu that offers plenty of classic drinks- mostly whiskey and bourbon based- as well as more modern cocktails.

Every time I’ve been there, they’re busy and they have a great atmosphere that offers a perfect balance of casual dining and instagramability.

 

And if this doesn’t have you sold, here are a few snaps from prior visits, courtesy of my Instagram.
