18. BB’s Cajun Cafe: Morgan City Catfish
Yet another find from a He Said, She Said. Here were my thoughts at the time. “I ordered the ½ portion of Morgan City Catfish ($7). It was a substantial portion for the price. The dish consisted of pecan-crusted catfish, in a creamy, peppery etouffee sauce with white rice. The catfish was thin and crispy and the sauce was very hearty, but perfectly spiced. Even the half portion put a hurtin’ on me, but I loved it. The full size would have shut down an artery.” That pretty much sums it up.
17. Pierson & Company Bar-B-Q: Pork Ribs
Pierson was part of The Mighty Rib Crawl and later featured on EOW. It was the first leg in a five team race, and although their ribs were narrowly beat out by Gatlin’s, there was no shame in defeat. Pierson brought it that Saturday, with a beautiful, slow smoked rack of tender ribs. The best part–the crusty exterior that locked in the flavor and provided yet another layer of texture.
16. Kenny & Ziggy’s: Smoked/Baked Salmon
EOW reader Eric Sandler suggested this glorious dish. Just look at it! Not cheap, but sometimes you have to pay a premium for well-prepared food. This is one of those times. Salty, smoky, fatty, and just plain delicious–K&Z’s salmon (really of any cooked variety) is not to be missed. I compared to a fine steak in the article and it’s really true.
Nooooo—Grandma is rolling over in her grave right now, Kevin!! Kolaches DO NOT have meat in them!! Those are called klobasneks. I get so mad at all these stupid bakeries calling saugage rolls kolaches!! Kolaches have fruit, poppyseed or cream cheese in them. ok-my rant is over…I just have been debating this subject with friends ever since my Sam Houston State days!
