Jokers & Thieves in Canton recently rebranded as Southern Provisions and switched up their menu – they kept it low-country, but made a few changes. With the addition of garage doors to the bar, on a warm evening, it’s the perfect place to sit outside. With the weather being so lovely recently, it was the perfect place to grab dinner and drinks.
Tip, if you’re at Southern Provisions and downstairs is packed, check upstairs – there’s a full bar and you can order food.
Southern Provisions is one of those places where everything on the menu looks delicious so my friends and I opted to share some appetizers. If you’re unfamiliar – Hush Puppies are similar to corn bread, except they’re deep-fried and shaped into balls. We started with an order of these and they were delicious. The order came with eight which was a good size for sharing – my friends and I loved these, as well as the honey butter they were served with.
We also started with an order of the Pimento Mac & Cheese Spring Rolls. These were every bit as delicious as they sounded. The pimento cheese was creamy and had a slight kick which I really appreciated. The rolls were also served with a sweet chili mayo for dipping. One of my friends declared this as her favorite dish in Baltimore.
Another item we ordered was the White Trash Tacos, I’m not going to lie, half the reason was for the name. But they also sounded spectacular. They’re tacos filled with fried chicken, slaw, pimento cheese, and pickled jalapenos. The fried chicken was super tender and the skin had a nice crunch. While I generally try not to associate myself with ‘white-trash’ I would gladly do it again for these tacos.
The last thing ordered was the Half a Day Smoked Brisket, the flavorful tender brisket was smoked for 12 hours and laid over a bed of cheesy-creamy- spinachy rice, roasted mushrooms and then topped with bleu cheese butter. Unsurprisingly, this was also delicious and I will probably order it on my next trip.
If you’re a fan of low-country food with a Baltimore twist, head over to Southern Provisions and give your taste buds a treat!
