If you haven’t watched the Netflix show ‘Fresh Fried and Crispy’ be sure to add it to your Netflix list. It’s a great show and entertaining too. Host Daymon “Daym Drops” Patterson brings his unique perspective to fried foods.

He drops in on the hottest spots across the United States. So far, he has checked St. Louis, Savannah, Las Vegas, Baltimore, San Diego, Denver, Cleveland, and close to home, Birmingham.

‘Fresh Fried and Crispy’ visited Alabama and skipped over Tuscaloosa. Daym visited Pursell Farms in Sylacauga, tasted Pig Candy, Thai Sticky Ribs, and more. Another spot was The Little London in Birmingham, where he devoured Fish and Chips. Also, he stopped by Yo’ Mamas in Birmingham, had got some of Ms. Denise’s famous fried pork chops.

Now, there are some spots in Tuscaloosa that Daym should have visited. Hopefully, he does an Alabama part two to experience some (as he would say) “fried up something proper” meals. Here is some of my hit list of fried and friendly spots.
