Gourmet Southern Home-Style Cooking at Memphis Cafe

Now is a great time to dine at Memphis Café located in the heart of the SOBECA district in Costa Mesa. A new spring menu and cocktails in the roadhouse-style bar were just introduced by classically trained chef and co-founder Diego Velasco.

The new spring dinner menu features Boudin Balls with ground, smoked pork, seasonings, rice, and vegetables rolled into meatballs and roasted, then coated in corn flakes. It's served with collard greens, pancetta, hot pepper-honey sauce and grilled bread.

There’s also a delicious Fried Green Tomato and Lobster Salad with tarragon, smoked paprika vinaigrette, dandelion greens; and Roasted Beet Poke with sesame, scallions, fried beet chips, hazelnuts, gorgonzola. Another salad favorite is the Pickled Shrimp Salad with chicories, citrus, crispy tasso, smoked paprika vinaigrette, and fried biscuit croutons.

Entrée choices include a Pan-Roasted Chicken with maque choux (Cajun creamed corn with chicken andouille sausage), cheddar-scallion biscuit and haricot vert. And the Blackened Rib Cap Steak Cast iron with Hasselback potato, grilled broccolini, and Roquefort fondue.

Dessert choices include a Sticky Toffee Monkey Bread with bourbon caramel, whipped cream, with toffee crumble.
