Jump-start Your Day at Black Walnut Cafe

Bacon. Cheeseburger. Benedict. 

Black Walnut Cafe has made a rapid entrance into the Metroplex over the last couple of years, and one thing I love about it, beyond their endless choices and fast service, is that they regularly refresh their menu items to introduce new and different dishes. The latest menu edition introduces a few new brunch items, some Asian influence, burger updates, plus more.

Black Walnut Cafe originated in Houston in 2002 as a "contemporary destination for hungry Houstonians", and as you might've noticed, they've since expanded across Texas and even into Georgia.

Their chef-driven recipes coupled with quick counter service is apparently a winning team! If you prefer full service, as I do on most occasions, you can always belly up to the bar for your meal and go the old-fashioned route for your ordering/dining experience.

The extensive menu gives you plenty of reasons to choose Black Walnut Cafe. Beyond the efficiency and freshness, the classic and other unique choices are sure to please even the pickiest person at your table.

From breakfast served until 11am M-F to their extended brunch hours on Saturday and Sunday (until 4pm!) Black Walnut is a primo brunch location. Brilliant benedicts are a highlight of the menu. One of their "favorite" Benedicts has a creative twist: the "Bacon Cheeseburger Benedict" (shown in feature photo) features two mini beef patties atop a toasted English muffin, with extra large poached eggs, American cheese, diced bacon, and a tasty cayenne-citrus Hollandaise. Traditionalists might also enjoy the Smoked Salmon Benedict, while the Farmer Bob calls out to me with its chicken fried steak, and the Lobster version because, lobster.

You can also munch on classic eggs and bacon, pancakes, chicken & waffles, or omelets on the breakfast side of things.
Asian Chicken Nachos (must have)

But even if you're in the mood for lunch, or visiting at dinnertime, you'll still find loads of tempting options at Black Walnut. Don't miss their new Asian Chicken Nachos which come served on wontons crisps instead of tortilla chips. Drizzled with Asian barbecue sauce atop crisps covered with grilled chicken, roasted corn, black beans, jalapeños, American cheese Pavia blend and sour cream, these nachos are my new favorite thing on the menu. Coincidentally, my old favorite menu item has been removed (The John Mac N Lob Pasta!), but I'm hoping to send an email begging management to bring it back, at least for a limited time. :)

Blackened Salmon Risotto

Other new menu items on the all day dining menu include Tuna Tacos, a Chilled Shrimp Gazpacho, Blackened Salmon Risotto, American Burger, and an "All Hands on Deck" chicken sandwich. With choices like these, it'd be easy to return weekly and try something new each time.

Turkey Croissant Club 
I couldn't say goodbye without mentioning the gelato and other desserts at BWC! See below for a peek at their gelato counter, located at the bar, next to their other dessert options. It's easy to pop in for dessert and coffee to catch up with an old friend, or to get your fill of their other fresh grub at Black Walnut. But why not enjoy all three?

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'…
