As we close out the 2015 Houston restaurant week, I am getting a bit choked up. I love good food. I love good food in Houston. I love good food in Houston at a reasonable price and for a good cause.
I was able to squeeze in 2 more restaurants during restaurant week. The first one was sal y pimenta in city center.
I was excited to see South American drinks on the menu and started out with a caprihina. It passed. The empanadas were amazing. After that, something changed in our service.
The night became louder. We saw our waiter less. It took about an hour for us to realize our entrées had not arrived. No one ordered a steak, which apparently if you are into steaks, they have quite the selection.
I’m not sure if it was the fish that took so long. I started wondering if they sent someone to catch it fresh.
I was disappointed in the flavor for my fish. I really wanted more seasoning. Yet, by the time I received it, I just wanted to eat. We started off great but ended not so great.
The next restaurant was Brennan’s. I am not sure what has taken so long for me to visit but I enjoyed it. We went for Sunday brunch and the atmosphere was much more conducive to conversation. They also modified the menu for children by charging for a half portion.
I did have to ask for the restaurant week menu and kind of got a slight sigh (as if I was using a Groupon). Other than that, our waiter was quite attentive. I enjoyed the meal and realize more and more, I might be turning into a creole only eater. I can’t do bland 🙁
Oh, the banana foster was unreal!
