Let’s Travel: Tunica

During a belle’s Spring Break (yes, a belle takes a break now), the sis and I decided to travel to the Deep South. We chose to visit the Mississippi Delta for the food, rich history, and fun. Tamika and I traveled to Tunica, MS, which is one of the most quaintest cities we’ve ever been to. Tunica is more than ching ching, slots, and the tables y’all! This city is about culture, history, blues, and of course yummy food! Blue & White Restaurant: This restaurant is where the locals go and sit at their favorite tables while waiitng on home-cooked food. If you go during lunch, there is a feel good Southern buffet of macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, and more. The thing we LOVED about this restaurant were their uber thick and good doughnuts. I swear these doughnuts were better than Krispy Kreme y’all! Cafe Marie: This quaint restaurant was once a former hotel, and even Katy Perry visited it before. Each night, the menu changes to reflect seasonal offerings. We ate lunch here and it was so fresh. The prices are beyond reasonable, the service wonderful, and you are treated like family Steakhouse: Now, you may come to Tunimca for gambling, but if you’re a foodie, you don’t have to look further. This swanky restaurant boasts an extensive wine menu. I had the grilled asparaagus, filet mignon The truffle fries were AHMAZING, ya hear me? I had never had truffle fries before, but lemme tell ya it won’t be my last time. The bananas foster dessert was ooh so good and the preparation was great. There’s more to Tunica than casinos. We visited the Tunica Riverboat Museum, which houses the Tunica Queen, a riverboat that goes down the Mississippi River.
