Mouth of the South is open in the former Cabbage Pie space on Carroll Street in Cabbagetown following its split with Illegal Food co-owners chef Steven Lingenfelter and Laurie Dominguez in July. A definitive reason for the split was never given, other than the two parties didn’t see eye-to-eye on the menu’s direction. Illegal Food has since moved back into its pop-up roots while they figure out their next move.
Meanwhile, Mouth of the South (2.0) released its finalized opening menu on Monday. Nachos and three types of wings like Korean fried are listed among the shared plates. Four tacos options are available; including the smokey oink with pulled pork, grilled pineapple, and hoisin barbecue sauce. Tacos can be made vegetarian upon request and ordered with either a flour or corn hard or soft shell. The meatless options continue with sandwiches such as the vegan BLT made with eggplant bacon and fried green tomatoes. For those craving a hot take on the Philly cheesesteak, there’s the brisket and Sriracha mayo Philly French dip.
The restaurant acquired its liquor license on Friday and immediately began stocking up on beer. FYI, Iron Maiden fans: Mouth of the South carries the British heavy metal band’s beer collaboration with Robinsons Brewery called Trooper.
