"Proper Brunch" at Next Door

Steak and Eggs

"Ding dong."

Me again. 

Last time I wrote about Next Door, I knocked, so I thought it only fitting I ring the bell this time. I like to keep you guessing. This time the bell is for their new "Proper Brunch", something I think you're going to simply adore.

Y'all know here in Dallas, we 💜  us some brunch, am I right? I didn't fully appreciate brunch until moving here 9 years ago, and now I am fully immersed in the weekend sport we all know as "brunching".

In 2016 I visited Next Door for dinner. (You can read my recap here.) I fell in love with several menu items and even included one on my list of Delia Jo's 100 Best Bites of 2016. So you know I was just tickled pink to receive an invitation to try out the amazing Chef Paul Niekrasz' new morning time menu. 

Served only on Sundays, this "Proper Brunch" has all your basic staples like Bloody Marys and Mimosas and eggs benny. But wait, there's more. Like the "Best F*ckin Fried French Toast", which has already lived up to the hype. This new Dallas favorite is made on cinnamon-raisin bread, then stuffed with cream cheese, pancake battered and fried, served with fresh berry compote, maple syrup, and whipped cream. I also fell in love with the Steak and Eggs dish, easily the best I've ever eaten. Perfect beef tenderloin with a sunny egg and hashbrowns, topped with a beautiful red wine-roasted garlic sauce. Divine. There are many more items for the samplin', you can see them all if you scroll through the photos,  I've included a menu photo, too. 

Next Sunday mornin' wake up your sleepy little head, and head on down to Next Door.

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou
