52 Austin Bites and Sips: Chicken Fried Olives at Second Bar + Kitchen

52 Austin Bites and Sips - Second Bar and Kitchen Fried Olives {Austin Food Lovers' Companion}

Pimento-stuffed and chicken-fried, the olives at Second Bar + Kitchen pay homage to Southern favorites in a single, scrumptious bite. Just right ratios of cheese filing to briny olive are wrapped in a light breading that adds crunch without being overwhelming, make it impossible to eat just one. Even if you think you don’t like pimento cheese you’ll find it a sweet and creamy foil to the salty olive. More than two guests at the table? Ask for an extra order (or two). Otherwise you may find table-mates coming to fisticuffs over who has had more than their fair share. Pair with a white wine that’s easy on the oak or even better a rosé sparkler.
