If we are talking shrimp and grits then we need to be talking HOUSTON, TEXAS! I'm jumping straight into this no small talk today. THE BEST SHRIMP AND GRITS I'VE EVER HAD TO DATE (with the exception of my own crack recipe) is hanging out in the kitchen at Another Broken Yolk Cafe in Pearland, Texas. The girls took me here for my final departing brunch hours before my flight to eat well and get buzzed for my flight. My heart was so full form this rich and creamy simple dish. The garlic bread on the side was an added component that I didn't even know that I needed, but I do!
The shrimp was cooked to perfection, not over done, the grits were extra soft and creamy and buttery. I loved the cajun flavor of the whole dish with the sausages and peppers topped with scallions. Now about this sauce! I was too buys stuffing my face and having a grand old time to remember to think about what ingredients might have gone into it. all I can tell you is that I could've drank the sauce by itself with the garlic bread it was THAT amazing. I'm sure they used heavy cream, butter, seasonings, and probably the bits from sautéing the veggies and sausage but that's not the point. The point is if you are EVER in Pearland (outskirts of Houston) you've got to try this place. If you don't live there, Another Broken Egg Cafe has a location in Burbank if you live here in California. I can not personally speak for that location and how it tastes but I am willing to give it a try at some point.
And if you're into Bloody Mary's as much as I am try their tomatillo Bloody Mary that's made from some kind of spicy-pepper-y infused vodka. It's spicy but good. I love the creativeness of the menu and how there is a seasonal menu where the items on it are produced from the food that's in season. I can't wait to see what they come up with for the fall. Try this restaurant, it's good luv, enjoy!
With Love & Food,
