Best Southern Greens (2000)
Marcella's Chicken & Fish
6339 East Greenway Road, Scottsdale
But that was before Marcella's opened for business, dishing out the verdant veggies that are a hallmark of any soul food menu. Kale, cabbage or collard, they're all prepared essentially the same way. Steamed with bacon or ham hocks until soft and tender, the leafy treats kick into high gear with the addition of garlic, and are then served in a steaming bowl of potent pot likker.
Forget chicken soup for the soul -- Marcella's greens will keep you in the pink.
