Welcome back fellow foodies!
This is one of the three places that was visited by us during HRW2015. It’s located in Heights area right next to the Torchy Tacos of West 19th street.
The restaurant it’s connected to Alli Pizza. You either have to walk up the stairs or take the elevator to get to the top floor where the restaurant is located.
As you walk into the place, the first thing you will notice are the windows that overlook the street. It’s pretty dang nice!! It lets in a lot of light into the whole restaurant from the outside.
This is the last week for Houston Restaurant Week and you must try this place or wait until next year! So…
Let’s start with the FOOD!
First on the list was the New Orleans style beignets with café au lait Anglais sauce.
The Harolds Double cheeseburger with 10.oz freshly ground beef from Finck cattle company, cheddar cheese, bacon jam, with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. It tasted very fresh! Very well cooked as well. If you plan on getting this burger, you definitely should wear dark clothing. And don’t forget to bring a bath towel to wipe your hands with after eating this thing. It’s that juicy!
And Grandmas cake with coconut cream and topped with whipped cream.
I ordered the Chicken and Sausage Gumbo with Holy trinity, chicken, andouille sausage in a dark roux.
And you know I also had to have the burger. Look at this thing! 🙂
I also had the Grandmas cake for dessert as well. It honestly reminded me of Tres Leches cake vs. a regular coconut cake.
Overall, the food was huge, filling and came out very quickly. Nothing was undercooked or overseasoned. Just one great food experience. Our waitress may have had a little trouble hearing us in the restaurant. Not saying that the noise levels was too high, just maybe too high for her to hear our orders. So some of our drink orders were mixed up a bit on the first go around.
We really had no real complaints about anything related to food that we order and service, despite that one hiccup.
Parking is complimentary valet so definitely bring some cash for a tip.
Houston Restaurant Weeks is coming to a close this very week. Even if you don’t make it to this place before the end of the week, it’s still a great place to have some good food and chat with friends. Our next stop will be trusty and always delicious Torchy Tacos next door!
