For 15 years, Ms. Kim’s Fish & Chicken Shack served some of the best fried catfish and fried chicken in Columbia, Missouri, cultivating a loyal following. Now, fans of the family-owned and -operated restaurant just have to travel a little farther to get their fill of the homestyle fare.
Last October, Ms. Kim’s relocated to Fulton, Missouri, occupying a space in the historic Brick District that formerly housed Fontenot’s Po’Boys. Stop in for the classics, or branch out with shrimp, frog legs or whiting (a white fish with light, lean meat and sweet, delicate flavor).
Whichever you choose, a meal at Ms. Kim’s isn’t complete without a smattering of Southern sides – think black-eyed peas, collard greens, pickled beets, potato salad and red beans and rice.
