Foodie Files: Mert's Heart & Soul

If you live in the south you know there are hidden gems scattered throughout the region where you can find some of the best southern soul food. Each restaurant has its own uniqueness, its own flair when it comes to preparing and plating it meals, which makes each experience at any southern restaurant different and incredibly exciting for soul food connoisseurs like myself.

On a recent day trip to Charlotte I had the opportunity to enjoy lunch at Mert's Heart and Soul in Uptown. From the street you would totally miss Mert's if you didn't know where it was, which is exactly what I did not once, not twice, but three times. Mert's is truly one of the hidden gems of Charlotte, North Carolina. Mert's has been featured on the Food Network hit, Diners, Dive-Ins, and Dives, and with good reason because the food was to die for! The menu included all of the tradition soul food and low country entrees and sides along with a couple of interesting twists such as soul rolls, which were a soul food take on Asian egg rolls. Yum!

 I went with my go-to combo of fried chicken, collard greens, and macaroni and cheese with a cornbread loaf on the side. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! I normally leave restaurants with a doggie bag for later, but at Mert's I wiped my plate clean; it was that good! The food was incredibly fresh and seasoned just right. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant so you're definitely going to have to try it for yourself!

Believe me, the next time I'm in Charlotte, Mert's will be the first place I stop for brunch, lunch, or dinner!
