We were really excited to have dinner at Zora's Cafe, a restaurant in Hell's Kitchen that serves soul food. We passed so many times in front of this 20 seat tiny place that I got curious. It started well, with a homemade lemonade that was delicious: not too sweet and with a perfect tartness.
And some very good homemade corn bread that was served with butter and drizzled with honey.
But then it started downhill: the kitchen, quite small, was so slow, it took forever for our food to come and it was not even hot! We got:
Hush puppies: just ok, a bit dry.
Fried green tomatoes: just ok, some slices being hard.
Linda's Mac and Cheese: promising when digging into it with a spoon, it was cold and so the cheese was not gooey.
Fortunately, the fried chicken was delicious, crispy and slightly moist.
We skipped dessert because of the slow service and left a bit disappointed for what could have been an amazing experience. Too bad...
