Tu Hai Restaurant is renowned for its savory crepes. Crispy and crunchy delights filled with shrimp or prawn they are a delight to the senses.
For something a bit more substantial then a trip to Smokey’s Barbecue cannot be more highly recommended. The brisket is a thing of beauty. Almost fat free it is served as fresh as you want. It doesn’t stand under heat lamps but is cut when you make the order. Get the ‘moist’ version and sit down to enjoy a flavor explosion.
If you want to enjoy an iconic dish then head on down to ‘Ronnie’s Catfish and More’. Here the signature meal is bursting with soft and delicious flavor. Only four tables are available – but sit yourself down at one of them and prepare yourself for a treat. Cajun spices make this into an experience you will never forget. No dried out fish here – silky and delicious is the name of the game. The made to order tartar sauce just makes even that little bit more special.
Texas is well known for its Mexican inspired food and a visit to Tacos Cantu will demonstrate why. It’s tucked into a gas station – but the food it serves is nothing like the prepacked soggy sandwiches that have given gas station food such a bad rep. Get yourself a breakfast version and start the day right.
Get in touch with your inner foodies at Stormie Monday’s where soul food is the name of the game. even home grown classics like meatloaf get a touch of love here. But if you really want a treat then order the oxtail. It’s a recipe that has put the place on the map. The owner oven bakes them rather than braises them – and it makes all the difference in the world.
