Eat This Nashville: April 2018 Edition

Hello, hungry Nashville-dwellers and weekend visitors alike.

It's been just over 5 months I have lived in Nashville thus far, and I have been wanting to launch this series pretty much the entire time. With as often as I dine out, I obviously have loads of stuff to share with you guys and don't always have the time to feature them in full blog post form (or even Instagram - plus, darn that algorithm). That's where Eat This Nashville comes in - a series where I'll share my favorite dishes and drinks from around Music City each month.

Volume 1 of Eat This Nashville includes 10 drool-worthy culinary creations from across Music City. From surprising sweet treats to Sunday specials and even secret menu items, there are so many layers of the culinary scene in Nashville to be discovered.

Have something you'd like to see featured? Use the hashtag #diningwithdeliajo, DM me on Instagram, or just old school email me at to send me your recommendations for future lists.

And now, my introductory Eat This Nashville 10 dishes to eat in April 2018:

1. Meatball Sandwich from City House (available on occasion on the Sunday Supper menu)

2. Goat Cheese Salad from Copper Kettle Cafe - I put a salad on here for y'all so you don't harass me. But in all seriousness, it's a show stopping salad.

3. Agnolotti from Sinema

4. Queso from Nada (read my full ode to Nada's queso here)

5. Beignets from Holler and Dash

6. Nashville Hot Crispy Pig's Ears from Lockeland Table

7. Le big Matt (Burger) from Emmy Squared  - Full recap of the opening coming soon to the blog. Truly, one of the best burgers you'll ever eat. #thatsammysaucetho

8. Veggie Plate from Husk Nashville- this one changes the way you look at vegetables. It has a nice southern accent that changes a tad every day.

9. Waffle Mondae from The Soda Parlor (shout out to Walk Eat Nash for helping me discover this gem - full Walk Eat Nash rehash coming later this week!)

10. Hot Chicken Ramen from Subculture Cafe

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
