SOUTHERN SIDES. The Handsome Hog’s adaptation of Hush puppies include three deep fried balls of batter with crab stuffing and creole remoulade. See the menu at or dine in at 173 Western Ave N, St Paul.

Nashville Coop serves authentic Nashville-style hot chicken strips and sandwiches. Brothers Arif and Kamal Mohammed started their business as a food truck and opened their first brick and mortar location in St Paul in 2020. Since then, they have opened two more locations in Rochester and Stadium Village.

They have a range of customizable spice levels (Minnesota Nice/no heat – Mini-Coop/mild – Coop/medium – Growlin’/hot – Cluckin’ Hot/24 hour pain). An order of chicken comes with three strips and a side of choice (fries, mac and cheese, or Texas toast) for $13. The strips are crispy with a thin layer of breading and the inside meat is tender and juicy. Sandwiches are two strips of chicken in between a soft buttered bun for $14.

Each order comes with pickles, coleslaw, and house sauce on the side.

Their prices are more expensive than the average fried chicken meal but portions are close to double the size. Each order comes with pickles, coleslaw, and house sauce on the side. Although it won’t blow you away, each meal is well executed with classic flavor combinations.
