No. 7: Shrimp and Grits From Creolina's Dixie Takeout

Chef/owner Mark Sulzinski's landmark Cajun and Creole restaurant moved from  Fort Lauderdale to Davie a little over a year ago. Now it churns out homier versions of its trademark dishes. Prices are low and portions are huge; that's especially true of the shrimp and grits, an order of which fills the entire oval plate it's served on. In it, almost two dozen plump shrimp are bathed in a pool of pink tasso cream sauce. At the center is a cake of fried grits that looks like a massive cut of filet mignon, three inches wide and nearly that tall. When you crack open the crusted tower it flows like a crème brûlée, gobs of Monterey jack cheese and buttered grits oozing onto the plate. It's not exactly healthy eating, but what good Southern food is?
