The winner of CityBeat’s 2012 Sugar
Rush event was none other than Aunt Flora (Katrina Mincy) of the now
closed Aunt Flora’s House of Soul and the newly opened The Cobbleria
downtown. After winning everyone over with her peach cobbler, Flora
isn’t retiring the rolling pin anytime soon.
Every so often I stumble onto a restaurant that makes me say “Wow, that was insanely good!” Aunt Flora’s House of Soul in Silverton is the embodiment of that statement. Aunt Flora (aka Katrina Mincy) and her gregarious husband, Ron, opened their new restaurant in August on Montgomery Road in a slightly hard-to-find storefront that used to house a Chinese restaurant.
