Upscale Comfort Food
If you are in the mood for some serious upscale comfort food then look no further
than The Mason Jar Café. Located just south of the Oakland Park Boulevard and North
Federal Highway near the new Depot Cabana Bar, this is the perfect spot to drop in
when you do not feel like cooking -
If you are looking to take a friend out for something wholesome to eat, or have family visiting, The Mason Jar Café should be top on your list of places to eat in Fort Lauderdale. The Center Cut Pork Chop was perfectly prepared and about the size of three portions of meat I would normally cook for myself. The pork chop came with a sun dried cherry sauce that tastes exactly like the name would lead you to believe. I almost asked if they bottled it. The Skirt Steak was served with an ancho chili sauce, and with their South American Chef, there was just a hint of spice that gave the meal a South of the border flair.
Since the weather has cooled down, we decided to try a bowl of soup. The French Onion came with enough of a gruyere cheese hug to make you cheese a grin from ear to ear. The menu says that the Fried Green Tomatoes are even better than the Whistle Stop Café and, as a movie buff I just had to try them out. They were served with a side of Greek Tzatziki sauce
Even the menu at The Mason Jar is a little tongue-
Even if you think you are going to split right up the middle, you must try one of their desserts. For a very reasonable price they offer a sampler platter that includes a Strawberry Chocolate Pie (with a layer of cheesecake), a Frozen Fudge Pie from a recipe created by the owner’s mother and a creamy Frozen Lemonade Pie that you wanted to have a pie eating Contest with. Believe it or not, we also tried the molten Chocolate Bomba cake with vanilla ice cream and ate the whole thing too.
If you are seriously hungry or simply in need of southern style comfort food then drop by The Mason Jar Café and tell them the gang from Mark” s List sent you!
