The Perfect Date Night : Foodie Edition

A good foodie typically has a multitude of food places they would love to visit in their area. Mostly, places that have good prices, customer service, ambience, location and most importantly good food to match. In this case, this is MY version of a perfect date night for foodies. Most people go for reasonably priced food, but I wanted to show the the broad range of places from $$$$ to $. Of course all of these things can be mix-matched and utilized for a lot more than just a date night. A perfect date also means you need the perfect significant other to join you. Hopefully they’re not a picky eater, but if they are, make sure you choose a place with plenty options. Options is the keyword in defining the “perfect” date night.

Now lets get into the best parts!

Movietime!

Going to the movies is the best way to snuggle up with a love one and enjoy a temporary care free life away from the real world for a couple hours. The average movie theater are set up as large theaters made for large crowds, basic food options with people who can be typically in an awkward place sitting next to a complete stranger. As of late, movies theaters have moved towards being the jack-of-all trades of date nights. They’ve are added better food and drink options, better sitting arrangements that are more personal and comfortable and they’ve also have added waiters to serve you directly in your seat, so that you don’t have to walk a single step to get get any of your food and drink items.

Here are a couple of my choices for movie theaters.

Show off!

Comfortable seats!

Ipic theater ($$$$) has some the best qualities for the best movie experience possible. You will have your own two seats that is walled off from other the movie goers. You have blankets if its too cold in the theatre, a small pillow to get extra comfortable and an electronically controlled reclining chair. Their (menu) is full of “Luxury” food options such as a Wagyu Beast burgers, lobster rolls or loaded tater tots. They have a full restaurant and bars outside the theatre to relax and socialize before and/or after the movie. Of course all of these amenities come with a price. But it worth it in my opinion when you just want to have a great time!

But you just want to spend time together… Here’s a cheaper option.

Movies
Comfortable but not so private

If you not into that kind of stuff just yet. Then I definitely recommend going to Studio Movie grill ($$). It’s the same concept but the seating is not as personal and as comfortable. But you can surely get the same customer service experience throughout your movie going experience.

My Favorite part : Food

For the perfect date night, you need to have the perfect steak dinner. Steak is a staple of deliciousness that I like to experience once a week if I could. But my responsibility alarm will go off and will make sure it keeps me in line with what I want to buy. Steaks should barely touched other than the heat of the grill and mild seasoning, a minimum amount of sauces, cooked no further than medium well. After medium-well, it loses its flavor and texture. once you find the sweet spot, the flavor will surprise you!

Keeping showing off!

My pick for food is Capital Grille ($$$$)

But first you have to start off with a great appetizer that compliments the perfect date, that also prepares your palette for the rest of the nights food offerings.

seafood
Nice Appetizer!

I recommend the fried calamari or the lobster and crab cakes!

Next up.The main courses.

Steak is so good!
Yes!!

This is Capital Grille’s encrusted coffee NY strip with shallot butter sauce with sauteed spinach and lobster mac and cheese. $$$$

Going for a little cheaper…

Try Taste of Texas ($$$)

NY Strip steak with garlic butter. 🙂

Just want to spend time with your date?

Try a regular steak night in Houston . I regularly use this (site) to find what I need for steak nights around Houston.  But you have to remember to time your meals with your movietime. I would suggest eating after the movies, because who wants to watch a movie after a huge meal? This also means going a littler early to the movies because most steak nights end early depending on the day.  Pricing, seating and location are all up to you in terms of what you and special need to have a good time.

With all these steaks,you have to have the perfect sides  to enjoy them.

Lobster Mac and Cheese

Lobster Mac and cheese is must. Sauteed spinach with garlic helps with digestion and the perception of eating”healthy”. lol

Not really a meat eater or just don’t feel like eating beef? Go to Pappadeaux’s.

Blackened Catfish

Try Pappadeaux’s ($$) Mississippi Catfish Opelousas (good luck pronouncing that word)  which is blackened catfish with oysters,shrimp, and crabmeat in a delicious lemon garlic butter sauce. This is all served over a delicious dirty rice.

Closing out the perfect date : The Dessert

At this point, you’ve seen a movie, ate really well and probably had a few adult beverages in-between. But you and your date have a sweet tooth.

You’ve may have already visited one steakhouse, but Pappas Bros Steakhouse offers great steaks and also great desserts.

 

This dessert is a milk chocolate mousse with a toasted marshmallow with dark chocolate ganache, toffee pieces & vanilla-malt sauce.

Ice cream is good too!

If you want something different and customizable then I would chose Creamistry ($$). Creamistry uses liquid nitrogen to create your custom mix of ice cream flavors and choices in a matter of seconds. It’s really cool in terms of presentation and flavor choices.

The perfect date is relative to the people who are enjoying the night out. These are just my recommendations of course. You can use as many permutations of this list as possible that will result in your own “perfect” night.  This can also be a great idea when you may want to pop ” the question” one day !  When you have the right one, you probably have a perfect date on every date anyways!

Until next time my friends!. Don’t forget to visit my Instagram and Facebook page for more food porn!

Stay hungry!

 

 

 

BossCat Libations. The love of food and brunch.

You’re taking your usual stroll through Yelp looking for a new spot to entice your palate. When you’re a foodie, you’ve tried a thousands places before and you need something new. You almost gave up but then you notice a name that makes your eyes light up. It’s Bosscat Kitchen + Libations. From the pictures alone, you just knew you had to try this place out. And that was my story on how I ended up going to them several times in a single month. From brunch to dinner, Bosscat will give you everything that you need to have a great dining experience.

Now lets get into the great food, drinks and the joys of good food.

Fried egg and the rest…

burger
Bosscat Burger

I have a close relationship with fried eggs. If the option is on the menu, I will pay the up-charge to have it. This is where I introduce the Bosscat burger, that’s made with in-house ground beef, bacon, cheese and black garlic sauce. Juicy, large as hell and flavorful are the first thoughts that come to mind. But no burger is complete without the fries. The Bosscat fries takes two days to prepare and the recipe is a secret, but they are delicious nevertheless.

Bosscat Sticky Bun burger
Bosscat Sticky Bun burger

Another burger they serve is strictly for the brunch crowd. The Sticky Bun Breakfast burger is made with a sticky bun with sliced smoked ham,in- house ground beef, cheese, duck fat fried egg and pecans on top. You’re thinking to yourself, why in the world would I get this burger?  Well, on the top of their menu their brunch motto says “…because calories don’t count on Sundays”. It’s one whole breakfast in a neat package.

Canadians love cheese too…

egg pountine
Bosscat Poutine

Poutine is a Canadian staple that has been around for the last 60 years. To be considered a poutine, it must have these three delicious ingredients : cheese curds, french fries and gravy. Everything else is just an extra level of enjoyment. Bosscat has  some really good poutine and it’s shareable, it’s fulling, it’s nap inducing and it’s everything.  The Bosscat Poutine is made with their homemade Bosscat fries, pork belly, Ellsworth Creamery cheese curds, and Andouille sausage gravy. Make sure you grab yourself a nice whiskey or cocktail or both. It doesn’t matter at this point, you will be full and sleepy before the drinks comes to the table after eating this meal anyways.  

frog leg
Nashville hot frog legs

Have you ever wanted to go to Nashville and have hot frog legs? You’re in luck! Bosscat has what you need! The Nashville Hot Frog Legs are buttermilk battered frog legs, that’s tossed in a Nashville hot sauce and served on a piece of white bread to soak the juices for you. This was a great appetizer that I refused to share with anyone who asked.

Beef and chicken and potatoes… Am I on a farm?

Beef
Braised Beef short rib

I was lucky the first time I visited Bosscat. The owners were very generous with their time in describing their food on the menu. You can tell that they’ve tasted everything on the menu. This wonderful suggestion by J.T. was one of my favorites. The 12 hour Braised Beef Short Rib that is made with Midwest braised beef short rib, in a black pepper sauce, potato gratin and topped with another fried egg! Sorry for the picture. I was too excited to eat!

For the love of Brunch…

Brunch
Fruity Pebble French Toast

The Fruity Pebble French Toast. The creativity of this meal gives it a 12 on a scale of 1-10.  The bread that was used was perfect. It soaked up the flavors but didn’t get soggy whatsoever. I literally ate half, shared some later, took it home and ate it for breakfast the next day!  Their french toast is infused with condensed milk glaze, chopped bacon, fruity pebbles and fresh berries. Its only on brunch!  🙁 And its very popular. And you might see me there eating it again.

Another favorite of mine…

breakfast brunch
Everything breakfast!

Another candidate for meal of the year goes to the Short Rib Chilaquiles. It’s made with shredded beef short rib, over corn tortillas, cheese, sliced avocado and topped off with a fried egg and sour cream! This was so fulling. You can definitely skip dinner with this combination. It sticks to your bones and doesn’t let go until you wake up again.

Overall, Bosscat has some really good food. The atmosphere is incredible. They have the glass garage doors that open to let sunlight and fresh air in, and you have the vibe of California throughout the restaurant. It makes sense, because there is another Bosscat in Newport, California. The Houston food scene is getting very robust and its getting harder to differentiate yourself from one restaurant to another. But Bosscat had definitely separated themselves from everyone else with their food, atmosphere, drinks and prices. They’ve only been open for a few weeks and they have already made a significant impact to the food scene.

Lobster with a touch nostalgia from home…

Lobster Lobster More Lobster

Any one who has moved from their respective hometown will always has a few places of they will miss visited from home. It can be their actual home they grew up in or philly cheesesteak place across street from their old high school.  In this type scenario I would like to introduction Buddy, an entrepreneur who moved from Maine to Louisiana to pursue his career in education. His also met his future wife and business partner. The nostalgia of missing food from several places from home inspired him to move to Houston and start a sandwich business. Specifically with the simple flavors of North eastern America. This is where we introduce Mainly Sandwiches. A local eatery who specializes in Lobster rolls. The keywords for this type of food establishment is; fresh, prepared perfectly and consistent. Consistency has always been my main pet peeve from local restaurants. And you know what? I didn’t have that problem at all!

Let’s get into the food.

Lobster
Great spread!

Walking into the place, you will notice the theme of a northeastern pier and the fishermen bringing in the fresh lobster catch of the day.  It took me a while to decide on what type of sandwich I wanted try. My usual plan is to get multiple items on the menu for blogging and my own personal enjoyment. :). But I settled or should I say I was focus on getting something that was full of lobster. So I ordered the regular lobster roll with a side of fries. The service? Quick! The lobster roll? Tasty. Wanting more Lobster later? Yes!!!. The lobster was perfectly cooked and was never frozen, so you know its super fresh.

Lobster Euphoria Completed!

Soda
Moxie Cola

After finishing the whole roll and needing a nap, I was jokingly speaking to my fellow blogger Mark of The Flight Tasting about a drink I notice that was everywhere throughout the restaurant called Moxie. I am very aware of the word “moxie” but not the drink itself. During this discussion, a gentlemen behind counter shouted ” would like to try it?” . We both agreed to try it, because… well… it’s something new to try! Moxie can be described as a mixture of coke, root beer and a touch of cough syrup. The carbonation level is on par with Coca Cola , which was super helpful in breaking down that whole Lobster roll. Back to the gentlemen behind the counter.  Well I found out he is the owner and operator of the Mainly Sandwiches who goes by the name “Buddy” .

Buddy was very friendly and very knowledgeable about his food and how he wanted to open a place that was representative himself and his hometown food. He wanted to bring the taste of home to share with Houston because he couldn’t find a place around town to get it just right.. There’s something about someone who knows their food and loves to share that pleasure with other people as well.

Friendly Atmosphere

BLT and Italian
The bread!

He was very adamant about trying his other sandwiches on the menu. Of course this wouldn’t be a problem, if I just didn’t down an entire loaf of bread and large sweet and tender lobster chunks. Luckily, he offered a nice sample of his Italian and BLT sandwiches.  Both of the sandwiches were the right mixture of flavors and textures when it comes to eating a sandwich. Again, the bread shines again, but the levels of flavor made you want to grab a few sandwiches to take home for later.

If you ever wanted a sandwich and want a nice quiet place to sit and eat and have friendly people discuss food from their hometown, then I recommend coming to Mainly Sandwiches.  I also recommend trying a trio of sandwiches, which means bringing multiple friends and stealing off their plates! Everyone wins!

Seasons 52 – Healthy,tasty and low calories!

oyster

Hello, everyone!

During the summer, Houston Restaurant weeks (really a month) gives us a chance to look at what Houston has to offer. Seasons 52 caught the eye of our friends and we were ready to head up and taste what they had to offer.One thing to note is that Seasons 52 food focuses on taste without being heavy on calories, basically healthy and delicious food. This is definitely a plus for people who want to experience Houston restaurant week , but doesn’t want to ruin their diet for the month.Their menu also includes calories on each food item .This should be a big plus for the calorie watchers!

Seasons 52 is situated in the City Centre area off Interstate 10 and the Beltway and off Westheimer Rd. in the Galleria area of Houston. We chose to go the City Centre area since it is one of our top “We have no idea on what to eat, do or go” type of place. It has everything you could possibly think of to do. Movies? Check! Happy Hour spots? Check! Date spots? Check!

The first thing we ordered was the Lump crab, shrimp, spinach stuff mushrooms, topped with a parmesan panko crust. They were INCREDIBLE. Full of flavor and contained elements on some of our favorite ingredients in a meal. We definitely recommend this appetizer even if you weren’t planning on eating that much!.

oyster

We then noticed their wide variety of flatbread pizzas. We had the Grilled Garlic Pesto Chicken pizza with fresh mozzarella cheese, balsamic onions,
roasted red peppers, arugula. The second pizza was the Salumi Piccante pizza with dry-cured artisan, sausage, roasted Roma tomatoes, fresh
mozzarella and basil pesto. And the third pizza was the Blackened Steak & Blue Cheese pizza with cremini mushrooms, spinach and caramelized
onions .The chicken pesto was the most popular. And yes, we shared the pizza!

Pizza

Salads

I’m not a big fan of salads, but it was part of the meal and they ended up pretty good.

The first salad was a spinach salad with feta cheese, raspberries and pine nuts. ( Mine)

The second salad was a classic grilled chicken caesar with mixed greens and fresh shaved parmesan cheese. (Hers)

Entrees!

First up is the Oak Grilled Beef Filet over sugar snap peas, mushrooms, Yukon mash, red wine sauce. The meal was very light but really tasty. The beef was tender and flavorful.
beef and green beans

She had the Honey Herb Half Roasted Chicken with seasonal vegetable, Yukon gold mash, herb lemon sauce. The chicken was moist and flavorful. And again, it was very light but still filling.

Desserts

It was about 12 of us, so it was recommended by our server that we get a the mini indulgences tower. It was full of small desserts of strawberry shortcake, peanut butter and chocolate cake, pecan pie, key lime pie, carrot cake and s’mores cake. Every single one of those little desserts were full of flavor that made you want to have 5 of each one.
(sorry for the blurry pic)

This restaurant is gear towards fine dining while also including multiple diet types like Gluten – Free, Lactose-free, low sodium, vegetarian and vegan. Check out their menus below to get a good overview of what they have to offer.

Everything tasted great. Service wasn’t up to par due to the waitress being fairly new and having a huge table for her the first time. But the food made up for it. This place is a definitely recommended for anyone who loves to eat and also for people who are watching what they eat.

The Chicken and Waffles You Must Try Soon!

Jupiter

When the combination of Chicken and Waffles first came onto the scene, it was considered sort of taboo in the food world. People would say,“Those things definitely don’t go together” or ” Are you crazy!? The grease from fried chicken will make the waffle soggy”. Fast forward to today and it’s a completely different tune! There are several places in the Houston or Texas or in the U.S. that serve some version of Chicken and Waffles. Some places use chicken breasts, some use chicken wings, and some use chicken strips. Depending on your preferences, none of that will matter unless the waffle is tasty and cooked perfectly !  We’ve had waffles from a lot of places around Houston. But the Breakfast Klub is Houston’s go-to spot for Chicken and Waffles. Usually, the wait is little long and you may be outside in the elements for a while waiting on your table. So once our friends decided to meet up at a new place that serves Chicken and Waffles, we couldn’t turn down the offer.

Jupiter Pizza and Waffles is located in Sugarland, Texas, in the Sugarland Town Center. It’s great for brunch or just to eat with friends or family. We arrived on time as usual and had to wait about 30 mins to get a table. Which was understandable due to the large group that was coming to eat and they were also pretty busy that day. We finally sat down and did our usual look over the entire menu and proceeded to pick at least three new things to try to eat/drink.

Chicken and Waffle brunch

We first started with the Mimosas carafe. The orange juice to champagne ratio was perfect, the carafe runs about 32 dollars or 6 dollars per glass. They have other types of Mimosas on the menu as well ranging from 6 to 8 dollars per glass or 24 to 40 dollars per carafe. We were able to get 6 glasses out of one carafe, so it was worth the money. We then decided to try one of their pizzas.

One of the good things with eating with friends is that you can try everybody’s food as well. 🙂  We wanted a really good pizza so we ordered the Angry Rooster, but we also wanted 6 other pizzas from the menu as well lol . The Angry Rooster comes with mozzarella cheese, house-made pulled pork, caramelized onions, fresh jalapenos and yard egg topped with BBQ sauce and cilantro.

Pizza brunch

Our friends order the Meat Hugger, so we “grabbed” a couple of slices from their pan. The Meat Hugger comes with tomato sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, Italian sausage, and pecan smoked bacon. (problem solved from earlier ). It was really good!

more pizza love

We then moved on to the reason why we came to this place. THE CHICKEN and WAFFLES!

I ordered Morning Belle which came with an all-natural crispy fried chicken breast topped with 2 cage-free poached eggs, applewood smoked bacon, and country gravy served over a crisp and fluffy Belgian waffle. The eggs and bacon were perfectly cooked and the waffle was sweet and flavorful.

Chicken is great!

She ordered Southern Belle which came with a crispy fried all natural chicken breast served over a Belgian waffle topped with our homemade maple cream and added a scrambled egg. She also chose the crispy sweet potato fries to compliment her food. The sauce that came with the fries was really good. She ordered another side of the sauce because it went so fast.

waffles!

Overall everything was great! The food and service was exactly what you expect from a good restaurant.

There are so many places to try Chicken and Waffles and this is one of many of them. But all of them are not the same. But you can rest assure that these waffles will hit the spot and you will want to come back. We can also add that it’s also a great area to go shopping or to just walk to burn off those calories you just loaded up on!

If you plan on going anytime soon or later, Sunday’s is the best time to go. Parking should be fine, but take note that you may have to park a little far in the parking garage.

5 Delicious Tacos you will love!

Velvet taco

Hello, fellow Foodies!  We recently found out about a new place to eat in the Heights area of Houston and that means a quick visit by us! This new place serves tacos with ingredients that are supposed to be served on someones’s dinner plate. That new place is called Velvet Taco. It’s situated right off Washington Ave right next to the Jack in the Box. We headed right into the place and the first thing we noticed was that the parking lot was small, but the place was loaded with people. UH OH! Luckily, on our first go around in the parking lot we found a spot.

We quickly walked in and noticed that the place was very spacious and clean. GOOD! The line was long, but it moved at a steady pace. The wait gives you plenty of time to go look over the menu and also spot out where you are going to sit to eat.
Inside

As you can see from the menu, your first question to yourself, “Is how will they pull all of this off? “. It didn’t seem like the kitchen could handle the massive list of tacos on the menu. Once we buckled down on what we wanted to eat, we pseudo-memorized the numbers on the menu, instead of just reading off the titles of the food from the menu. We each got 3 tacos, not knowing if they were going to be huge or small tacos. We also debated if we were going to get any side items. But we ended up just settling on just the tacos to be safe.

velvet menu

Now for the run down! 

She ordered a  #10 Texas Burger, #15 Shrimp and Grits and a #12 Slow Roasted brisket.

I ordered a  #15 Shrimp and Grits, #11 Grilled Flank Steak and a #2 Rotisserie chicken.

The titles of the tacos don’t do justice in describing what’s in the tacos, so let me help you out!

Rotisserie Chicken
It came with white queso, roasted corn pico, cilantro, and smoked poblano salsa in a corn tortilla. It had great flavor and was really simple.
I really didn’t taste the rotisserie flavor, but it was still a good taco!

Rotisserie taco

Texas Burger
It came with a real burger pattie, peppered bacon, American cheese, lettuce, onion, tomato, pickles, and velvet sauce in a flour tortilla.
She like this one because it tasted like a real bacon cheeseburger without the bun. I enjoyed it for the same exact reason.

cheeseburger taco

Grilled Flank Steak
It came with grilled flank steak portobello mushrooms, white queso, grilled red onion, and mex – oregano in a corn tortilla.

Steak flank taco

Shrimp and grits
It came with creole mayo, blackened shrimp, deep fried crispy pepper jack cheese grits, charred tomato poblano creole, and micro cilantro in a corn tortilla.

Shrimp and grits

The Texas Burger and the Flank Steak tacos were our favorites.  We would have preferred all the tacos on flour tortillas versus the corn. We’ll make sure to ask next time we visit.

All the tacos

The drink selection is pretty nice too! You won’t find any Coca-Cola or Pepsi here. It’s simple, but the flavors were tasty!

Soda options

I had the black cherry soda that tasted like carbonated Kool- Aid (that’s a good thing) and she had the real lemon – lemonade.
They also have beers on tap, fresh margaritas and old school sodas.(not pictured).

Great sodas

If you love Torchy’s Tacos, you will definitely love this place! So you should definitely check it out if you have an urge for some good ole tacos.

Come back and tell us how you like it!

National Ice Cream Day aka Creamy fun day!

dessert ice cream

Hey! It seems like every week there is a new national “food” holiday.  A quick Google search shows the number to be over 150 food holidays. And this past Sunday’s holiday was a great day.  We went to our usual go-to area for finding something to eat.(Rice Village). They have several spots for desserts and at least three places that serve some sort of cold treat.  Swirll, Baskin Robbins, and Cloud10 are the few we think of so far. We settled on Cloud10 creamery.

Cloud10 is sort of a place that experiments with different types of flavors of ice cream. We are talking flavors like Peach and Black olive or Bay Leaf with marmalade ice cream. These are considered seasonal ice creams and you may like a certain flavor and never see it again. Don’t worry, they still have traditional flavors just in case you want to keep it to something that’s normal.

Now for the good part!.

She wanted something simple and settle on the vanilla bean ice cream, topped with candied pecans..I wanted the monthly sundae special. It was fudge sundae with vanilla bean ice cream topped with brownies, raspberry marshmallows, fudge, and whipped cream.

Sundae funday good

Look how good those two go together. We each got three scoops and it took me a very long time to get to the bottom of my cup. I soon found out that what was on the top of the sundae was also at the bottom of the sundae.  Every spoonful was loaded with gooey, chewy, creamy bits of sweet deliciousness. The employees take very good care to make sure that you get the right amount of everything in the cup or waffle cone..

Even though it’s not National Ice Cream day every day, you can give this place a try no matter the date. Bring your friends and family. Once you all grab your favorite flavor of ice cream, go ahead and take a walk around Rice Village to burn it off.

Overall this place seems to always to be always pushing the envelope in term making eccentric ice cream flavors. If you love trying something new, then add this to your list, just like we did.

Have fun!
