The last Vietnamese experience, I had was something out of a foreign film. It was located in Elmhurst, Queens and I sat at a round table with local random people, who didn’t speak a lick of English. An Nhau is the total opposite. The serene ambiance definitely sets the mood to indulge in authentic tasting native dishes. I was totally impressed with how attentive the staff was. The Beef Skewers were so succulent and tender, once my entree came out my tastebuds were open. My foodie partner in crime, Flower ordered the Chicken Curry. Lets just say, it topped...Read More
Abita Purple Haze is definitely in my top three favorite beers. I’ve talked about this beer briefly in another post but for those who don’t know much about it, let me school you 🙂 Purple Haze is a lager brewed with real raspberries added after the filtration. It’s brewed with wheat malts, pilsner, and Vanguard hops. The beer pours with a light golden color with just the barest hint of pink. Some folks can smell the berries but I don’t particularly smell berries, just a fruity aroma. It’s very light in body and flavor – This is a plus for those who aren’t big beer drinkers. The Abita website says this beer is best served with salads or light fruit desserts even chocolate desserts. Certain cheeses such as ripened Brie or any dessert made with mascarpone works great also. I personally can drink it alone or with any type of food. I had a Texas Haze which is a beerita type drink and had a tilapia with it – Tasted pretty good. Not too many places have this beer but I know for sure you can get it at Specs and HEB sells it in a multi-pack. Check it out and let us know how ya like...Read More

I am a southern belle that prides myself in making a mean bread. Unfortunately, mine has nothing on the mean masterpiece they are serving up at the Oceanaire Seafood Room. It’s the perfect balance of dense, moist, flaky , rich deliciousness. It’s not at all soggy because I can’t stand a soggy bread pudding. There are plump, sweet raisins sprinkled throughout. A great butter sauce is drizzled over the top, and they top it all off with a generous scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla! Its rich, warm, and wonderful! This is definitely a dessert for the sweet tooth...Read More
