This weekend was a pretty chill weekend for me compared to a lot of other weekends. Usually its a birthday celebration, break-up celebration, baby celebration, wedding celebration its always something! However, this weekend was a go with the flow kind of weekend.
Saturday was pretty cool my co hosts and I recorded a new episode (which is out right now!) with a very cool special guest.
The homie DJ Jay-Skillz came to show to drop some major knowledge about being single at 30, how to properly be single, and how he’s taking over the NOLA radio waves! Our New Episode is out now! Search BAR Talk on iTunes, Google Play, and SoundCloud! Check out our new logo below! We have big things coming, and I can’t express enough how proud I am of my co-hosts and I!
Okay moving on to Saturday night! I usually try to try new bars, or restaurants on the weekend because that is usually when I have the time. So this weekend my homie from DC came out to Houston to visit for a couple of days, and she wanted to go have a drink or 3 🙂 lol which just so happens to be my favorite thing to do on a Saturday night! So we decided to go to (well I suggested) Kung Fu Saloon. Now, the location in Dallas I heard is a bit well pretty much racist so I wouldn’t suggest going to that one, but the one in Houston never lets me down! Until that night…it was just so crowded and lot bumping and not enough people saying “excuse me” I think it was just not a good night, and I will have to try again another Saturday lol.
Anywho! The best part of the night was…yes you guessed it the FOOD! On the way out I ran across two amazing food trucks that was outside of Kung Fu Saloon.
The first Food Truck was Pocket to Me. Now, I’ve been trying this pescatarian lifestyle for about almost two weeks now, and I wanted to stick with it so I chose to grab something with no land meat on it. So I got the ‘Wicked Fries’ w/no spicy sausage (and yes I was a little sad about it), but it was amazing with out it! So much flavor, and cheese ( I LOVE CHEESE..it’s probably a bit sad how much cheese makes me happy…reason number 3983 why I would never go Vegan!). It also had spicy sour cream, jalapenos, yellow onions and green onions. It was finished with what I would assume was creole seasoning! Unfortunately, this place hasn’t posted to their Instagram since 2013, unless a new one has been made. Just look for the red food truck sitting outside of Kung Fu Saloon on Washington!
The second place was called Cajun Bayou Boss…and oh..my..damn! First of all Cajun food is one of my all time favorites, my mom is from Louisiana so that’s all I know basically! So I’m standing there devouring my fries lol and I’m reading the menu and I see “Crawfish Truffle Mac and Cheese” and I almost died. I was almost mad I got the fries lol (too many carbs in one night)..but being the food blogger that I am I HAD to try it!
I know the picture is trash..but I just wanted to show you guys…it was so many crawfish tails, and the truffle was HEAVY! Which didn’t bother me because I love truffle but, I just wanted to warn the ones who don’t!
Lastly, my partner in crime is such a wing eater! Wings are ordered 9 times out of 10 WHERE EVER we go! So she tried the wing combo which of course came with fries. The wing sauce had a sweet, spicy, garlicky taste it reminded me of jerk chicken KIND of. She doesn’t really like weird mixes, so this wasn’t as appetizing as she would have hoped however, I’m weird so I’m sure I would have enjoyed the chicken! Cajun Bayou Boss has an Instagram, and they actually tell you where they will be parked!
Whenever you are on Washington Ave. check these food trucks out! I’m sure its a million more on Washington and I am determined to try them all! Until next time! And yes I promise to take better pictures of my food!
