Prime 10 Dishes in August
On the finish of every month, I look again in any respect the great issues eaten over the previous 30 days. Listed below are my Prime 10 Dishes in August.
Double Cheeseburger at The Field
It is a burger’s burger — only a easy, well-constructed grease bomb that’s certain to please. My server advisable getting the double, and she or he was appropriate. The Field’s patties include a crusty, flavorful exterior, due to a decades-old flat prime. Thick-cut pickles, mayo, American cheese, and a slice of tomato seal the deal.
Pyro Poutine at On the Nook
On the Nook begins with a pile of residence fries that are then topped with a sausage cream gravy, cheddar, fried rooster tenders, and a house-made scorching sauce. The result’s a breakfast to recollect and the most effective tenders I’ve come throughout within the space.
Chocolate Mousse Dome at The Pizzeria
The Pizzeria lately upped its dessert recreation with the hiring of recent pastry chef Anna Chighizola, so I needed to discover out for myself how issues have been going. My Chocolate Mousse Dome, a easy, chocolate-covered mousse within the form of, you guessed it, a dome, sat atop a layer of cake. Ornamental whipped cream and strawberry puree have been good touches on this easy, but pleasant dessert.
Smoked Hen at Rely Porkula
There have been a number of positives from my latest go to to Rely Porkula, however none extra spectacular than the smoked rooster. The apparent brine job saved the meat moist whereas imparting a really perfect salty taste. No fork wanted right here. I wolfed most of it up with my naked fingers.
Veal Piccata at The Terrace
Some of us frown upon the thought of consuming veal. Not me. I find it irresistible. And I particularly love what The Terrace has completed with it for his or her Veal Piccata dish. A skinny slice of the protein is frivolously breaded and fried, then drenched in a lemon butter caper sauce.
Amberjack Tacos at Ciao Baci
Thank goodness our server nudged us to order the pair of amberjack tacos from Ciao Baci’s small plate menu ($6). He insisted the tacos — with fish, tomatoes, lettuce, roasted corn, and chipotle mayo — paired properly with our chosen Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc, and darn it if he wasn’t proper. This marked the primary time I ate amberjack in a taco, however the mild-tasting, firm-textured fish excelled on this format.
The Lox at The Croissanterie
Selfishly, I hope The Lox particular was a giant vendor for The Croissanterie, because it’s an merchandise that flat out belongs on the common menu. Fairly frankly, the dish is a murals. Simply have a look at it. The underside half of an oval-shaped croissant is topped with cream cheese, capers, and a heavy hand of lox, together with skinny slices of cucumber, crimson onion, and radishes.
Cajun Smothered Shrimp & Grits at YGFBFKitchen
I attempted a number of noteworthy dishes at YGFBFKitchen however none extra deserving to make this listing than the Cajun Smothered Shrimp & Grits. The chunky tomato compote makes this model a little bit totally different than many others, as does the plethora of plump shrimp and sausage. The restaurant isn’t stingy with parts both.
Hen, Beef, and Spicy Pork Noodle Bowl at Bulgogi Korean BBQ
Why restrict your self to at least one protein when you possibly can go together with all three at Bulgogi? The standout is the spicy pork. The meat mixes splendidly with the thick udon noodles and greens like carrots, zucchini, and broccoli, making for a dish that eats simply as properly the following day because it does proper within the restaurant.
Breakfast Burrito Bowl at Bella’s Kitchen
I lastly tried Bella’s Kitchen, the native meal-making firm right here in Little Rock and was blown away by their Breakfast Burrito Bowl. The 16-ounce bowl included cilantro lime rice, bacon black beans, and Salvadoran salsa, together with a wonderfully cooked, gentle boiled egg. Not solely did every thing style nice, however the meal stuffed me up for many of the day.
