Jazz Fest food quick pick: for the end of the fest, a dose of “old sober” _lowres

Advocate staff photo by Ian McNulty -- Linda Green has earned a wide following for her yakamein, which she serves at Jazz Fest.

What: Yakamein

Where: Food Area I

Why: A hangover is not required to enjoy this second line parade classic, also known as “old sober.” But Miss Linda Green’s broth, smacking with green onions, sluiced with noodles, bits of beef and egg and the (optional) shot of hot sauce, is undeniably restorative. If that sounds like just what you need by the end of another long Jazz Fest, no one will judge.
