Brunch at The Royale: A Culinary Safari



Biscuits, and cocktails, and giraffes... Oh my!

Brunch is a force to be reckoned with at The Royale. In fact, I think it's quickly shimmied its way up to the top of my list of Plano brunches.

The Royale opened last year in Plano (read all the juicy burger details in my Plano Magazine article), and they've just introduced their new brunch menu, which I'm pretty darned excited about.

To begin your brunch safari, imbibe one of their featured $6 brunch cocktails, like the house Bloody Mary, an Aperol Spritzer, or Thairish Coffee. Those are sure to help you spot lots of exciting brunch items on the menu.




A giraffe! In the wild! With house-made donuts on its neck! No, you haven't already had too much to drink (you just got started). These are crumbly (read: messy) delights, complete with cardamom sugar and DIY toffee dipping sauce.



Also to share, don't skip the Jalapeño & Cheddar Drop Biscuits, with a seriously addictive spicy sausage gravy. Don't let them tell you it's queso.





When you're done with sharing and ready to venture out on your own, items like Inside Out French Toast, the Magnificent BLT, Royal Dutch Baby Pancake, and Chicken and Waffles come calling. Partially classic, with a few surprising twists, there's something for every hunter... errr, I mean bruncher.





Sweet tooths will rave about the Inside Out French Toast, decadent with strawberries, bananas, whipped cream cheese, and a Cap'n Crunch crumble, while serious breakfast eaters will enjoy noshing on Breakfast Tacos, Brisket and Biscuits, or the classic Royale Standard breakfast. The Magnificent BLT is a panini filled with bacon, vintage cheddar, avocado, tomato, mayo, and arugula, topped with a picture perfect egg. You'll definitely want to shoot it (with your camera, silly) and then eat it.



Adventure to The Royale to discover your new favorite brunch destination.

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 sauces. Douse wit…

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 expand, and…

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 couldn'…
