Prayers in the front, provisions in the back - Savannah
We just finished a fabulous lunch at the Masada Cafe, located in the back part of the House of Prayer at 2301 W. Bay in Savannah. We'd been meaning to stop here for years. Pastor Jackson and his wife run it, along with church volunteers. Very gracious and friendly people. I had a fried chicken breast, delicious! I chose red rice, Mac and cheese, and collards to go with it. All excellent, but especially so the mac and cheese. My husband got the oxtails and gravy over red rice and Lima beans with okra and fried cabbage. He pronounced it to be wonderful. For dessert, I got a peach cobbler, still very hot from the oven. It wasn't overly sweet and was topped with a crisscross pastry crust sprinkled with cinnamon. My husband chose a slice of white layer cake with a dark chocolate frosting. He declared it to be "very homemade". They were written up a month or so ago in Southern Living, whose advice I don't usually take when it comes to Roadfood but the Masada Cafe is the real deal. Other choices of meats today were turkey leg, baked chicken, meatloaf, pig's feet and barbecued ribs. They're open Friday thru Monday 11:00-5:00. No credit cards. Our two meals plus dessert were $24. Also, they donate their profits to various community causes.
