This Week’s Eats: 03/29/13

Okay, so, this is more like “three weeks’ eats,” but what can you do?

And, yes, I did eat this many tacos.  My coworkers and I recently decided that approximately 75% of our diet consists of tacos.  Deal with it.


Sagra Trattoria and Bar is open!  Their new location at 1050 East 11th Street is really nice, too.  These are the profiteroles (basically, a profiterole ice cream sandwich with chocolate and caramel sauce!).

Salumi plate

Oscars salumi platter.

Sausage sandwich

Homemade sausage sandwich with butter-toasted sourdough, apple- and gouda-stuffed sausage, English cheddar, and shreeded red cabbage.  Delicious.

Burrito Factory

Two tacos al pastor (my usual), from the Burrito Factory in Dobie Mall.

Curried pork

Homemade curried coconut pork with shredded red cabbage, carrots, homegrown cilantro.

Dad's Beef Tacos

Dad’s Beef Tacos

Roast potatoes

Potatoes roasted in duck fat.  Remember that time I roasted a whole duck.? Yeah.

Taco Joint

Potato, egg, and cheese breakfast taco from the amazing Taco Joint on San Jacinto (my second favorite taco joint after Burrito Factory!).

Veggie samosa

Veggie samosa at Clay Pit. Addictive.

Peshwar martini

Peshwar Martini at Clay Pit: Stoli Vanil, Frangelico, Chambord, cherry.  My new favorite.

Macaroni carbonara

Macaroni carbonara with homgrown wilted arugula.

Bearded Seal Stout

Bearded Seal Stout at Pinthouse Pizza – really good.

Pinthouse Pizza

The Cannonball at Pinthouse: sauce, cheese, crumbled sausage, bacon, pepperoni, Canadian bacon.


Standard cheesesteak at Texadelphia on the Drag.  I could drink that mustard sauce.

Kerbey Lane Cafe

Eggs Francisco at Kerbey Lane Cafe on the Drag: English muffin (subbed homefries!) piled high with scrambled eggs, bacon, avocado slices, and queso. Served with two sides (bacon and sausage!).  Whoah.

Breakfast tacos

Homemade breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, cheese, bacon, and hot sauce.

Grilled salmon tacos

Homemade grilled salmon tacos with homegrown cilantro, grilled mushrooms, and sour cream.  Drool.

Dad's Beef Tacos

Dad’s Beef Tacos (again)

Austin's Pizza

Half and half pie at Austin’s Pizza: half Pesto A-Go-Goat (my favorite) and half Super Pep.

Beef and broccoli

Homemade beef and broccoli.  A recipe I’m working on.  Turned out really, really good, especially considering the only ingredients were beef, broccoli, broth, and seasonings.


Breakfast with leftover taco meat.

Bearded Brothers

Bearded Brothers Might Maca Chocolate Energy Bar.  Delicious and highly recommended.

Mexican martini

Y’all know what this is.

Dai Due breakfast

Breakfast from Dai Due at the Mueller Farmer’s Market: Fried egg and sausage with diced potatoes; pork belly sandwich.  Yes.

Venison tacos

Dad’s Tacos (again – with venison from Dai Due!)

Homemade biscuits

Homemade biscuits.  First time ever.  Turned out amazing.  Inspired by weekly biscuit-making badass Jessica Luther.  I made Smitten Kitchen Cream Biscuits, sans sugar.


Leftover biscuits for breakfast.  Pan-fried in butter and bacon fat.


Matzocrack, courtesy the amazing Laura!  Chocolate, white chocolate, salt and chocolate, coconut and chocolate, almond and chocolate… Chag Pesach sameach, y’all!
