  • MOUNTAIN PEAKED: Peanut butter meringue at South End Grill.

For some time I’ve been sitting on a recommendation to visit the South End Grill south of Batesville. Seems like I always pass by either very early in the morning or very late in the afternoon. But I have been meaning to get there.


I finally made it about a week ago, traveling with a friend to parts further north. I walked right up to the counter, lured by the vision of three very toasty looking meringue pies. They looked alien and unusual, tan toasted lumpy meringues that looked like the topography of some distant mountainous nation. They also smelled quite good.
