The American Blues, the quintessential element of the American Midwest that tells the historical journey of modern America today. Developed when ex-slave African American migrated to the north during the Great Migration in the early 50s to cities like Chicago, these acoustic cum harmonica-based bluesy-jazz tunes started as street-corner based music. Soon though, the music gained massive popularity and spread across America with the same energy as its advocates.
With as much vigor as the music that accompanied them, the workers also introduced their own style of cuisine, spinning their Delta blues whilst venturing into their life’s other passion: Food. Or, more specifically, good ol’ fashioned barbecued pork ribs, with an extra dose of charming Southern hospitality! And so the essence of Morganfield’s began.
Morganfield’s combines life’s two greatest passions: music and great soul food. At the heart of Morganfield’s is it signature dish –”Sticky Bones” – a truly authentic, old-fashioned, prime pork ribs slow-cooked and smoked in coal and hickory wood to tender mouthwatering perfection, then basted with the gluey sweet-and-sour- tomato based home-made mopping sauce. A perfect accompaniment with good blues music and great friends!
During some nights at Morganfield’s, you can sense the original toe-tapping excitement of the roaring 50’s, venturing back to times when life was stress free and great music and food reigned, easing the long summer’s day.
