Sunday Brunch at Pecan Street Station; Good Choice…

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I wanted breakfast, but I didn’t want to cook. The kitchen was configured for jelly production, and it just seemed like too much work to rearrange, get out all the starters and then make the breakfast I wanted.

It was going on mid-morning too.

PJ was toodling around […]

North Texas Heat, and Chinese Buffet; a Great Start to the Month

I’m visiting a conference in Denton, TX, on campus at the University of North Texas. It’s a nice campus, but it’s hard to tell these days; it’s so hot up here you can’t really get out and tour the facilities for any length of time! It was 107 in the shade today, and the […]

Restaurant Review Update: Fujian Grand China Buffet Restaurant

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

My father-in-law and I made a run to the Big City for “parts.” (That’s code for, we’re going stir-crazy in this ol’ Ranch house with all the kids and dogs and leftovers.) We had a few legitimate chores, but naturally we took the opportunity to eat out.

It’s […]

Review: Mesa Rosa Mexican Restaurant

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

When my wife and I moved back to the Republic after completing our “missionary work” (four years in purgatory proselytizing to the heathens in the wilderness of Michigan, up near Santa’s house somewhere), we lived for a short while way out northwest of the city. We were […]

Restaurant Review: Casa Garcia's Tex-Mex Restaurant

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I’m a big fan (don’t take that too literally!) of Tex-Mex cuisine. Maybe “cuisine” is too snooty a word for these tasty, hearty dishes. It’s the cooking of working men and women, with few pretenses and no plan to grow up into a “cuisine.”

Besides, how many “cuisines” […]

Restaurant Review: Chola Indian Restaurant

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I’ve been home from India for a few weeks now, and although I’ve cooked some nice curries since, I don’t have the time (or the appetite) to make several entrées and all the trimmings for a simple lunch.

So I’m lucky that I have a great Indian buffet […]

Restaurant Review: Gumbo's Louisiana Style Café

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Unfortunately, this eatery is now closed.

My spouse’s best friend celebrates her birthday only a few days before my spouse celebrates hers. Actually, they celebrate these anniversaries whenever they feel like it, and sometimes they take a Mulligan if the first try wasn’t celebration enough.

Whatever the excuse, we […]

Cool River Café and Southwestern Poblano Soup

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

My spouse has a birthday coming soon, and although she claims she’s given up on getting older, she still likes to celebrate. Cyndi Lauper‘s got nothing on her! So she gathered up the Clan and we headed to Cool River Café for lunch.

Set on the northwest side […]
