Tricky Fish Introduces Brunch Menu

No city does food quite like New Orleans. True story: I made my husband eat 13 meals in a 3-day trip there last year. There are just so many great places and exciting dishes to try. Anytime I can find a taste of Cajun country closer to home I am on it. I've just gotta find those flavors and that soul!

Tricky Fish has truly brought a little taste of New Orleans to Richardson at CityLine. I've already fallen in love with their etouffee and Mac and cheese, so I went in with stretchy pants (well, actually a loose-fitting dress, because have you met me?) at the ready to try out their new brunch menu.

To begin your Saturday or Sunday brunch adventure at Tricky Fish, start with one of their Bloody Marys (with a house-made mix). Like it spicy? Just ask! There's even a boiled shrimp, crispy pork rind, and olive right there in case you're hangry and can't wait for the real deal.
You also might enjoy a traditional Mimosa, Michelada, or the Irish Iced Coffee with your brunch.

The brunch menu is short, sweet, and to the point... in fact, not tricky at all. :)
Offered on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-2pm, the prices are right and the tastes are even better.

We split two entrees. First, the Fried Shrimp and Oyster Grits. We're talking fried gulf oysters and fried shrimp atop creamy cheddar, corn, and bacon grits. All drizzled with a really tasty Shiner Bock BBQ sauce and crowned with a fried egg. Definitely the kind of signature dish I'll be returning for.

The other savory brunch entree we sampled was the NOLA Benedict. Like I said, I can never say "no" to NOLA. And that was the correct decision in this instance. The NOLA Benedict = biscuits topped with Andouille sausage, peppers, and onions. And poached eggs with creole mustard Hollandaise. SO fantastic. 10/10 will be back for more. They also offer a similar sounding Andouille Hash and Eggs (think the NOLA Benedict plus spinach and without the biscuits, but featuring a sauce I'm intrigued by: a Roasted Green Chile Hollandaise).

There's also a Couples' Brunch, priced well at $36, which includes 2 mimosas, 2 entrees, and a special shared dessert I'm about to mention (stay tuned). Sounds like a perfect day date to me!

There are Praline Pancakes on the menu for you Sweet Tooth friends out there, plus one last sugary brunch dish that will leave you on just the right note...

I'm just gonna leave you with this last one. Bananas. Foster. Monkey Bread.

Now. Pick up your spoon, wash it, and run to Tricky Fish this weekend for brunch. They'll provide the spoons.

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

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

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
