Foodstuff | New Times Broward-Palm Beach


So you say you like a little Scripture with your conch fritters and curry goat? Good thing Annie's Fresh Fish & Baked Goods (1100-02 NE Fourth Ave., Fort Lauderdale, 954-763-9774) is in the book -- the phone book, that is, not the Good Book. Along with the Caribbean and American fare -- "earthly food with a heavenly taste," or "family dining in a Christian atmosphere," as the eatery's slogans go -- the restaurant offers biblical sound bites. Thus, along with the "working man's island soup" and a glass of ginger beer, patrons get words to live by, such as "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6." An evangelical bonus: The menu notes that additional reading material will be happily supplied. Personally I'd rather just pass the plate -- for another bite of that oxtail, please.
