Whiting Fried to Perfection (2008)

Sheryl's Cafeé

Harlem is fried whiting capital of the world, and you can get it on nearly every corner. Thus it can only be after great deliberation that I bestow the palm on SHERYL'S CAFÉ, a newcomer to the neighborhood, though it offers the kind of excellent Southern food that tiny Mama-run cafés have been producing in Harlem for 80 years, of which very few remain. Don't miss the Carolina-style red rice, all moist and clumpy and on the spicy side.
