I met up with a wine friend, Ty of Your Glass or Mine Wine Blog at Benjy's in Rice Village today. We sat on the outdoor patio; it was a beautiful day in Houston! Benjy's has an awesome happy hour menu, which extends throughout the weekend. I love Benjy's decor, service and farm to table menu. Everything is so fresh and the menu changes sometimes, keeping it exciting as well.
Sauteed Local Gulf Shrimp with mango salsa, lime butter and toasted brioche.
Roasted cauliflower with herb tahini, parmesan, pistachios and nori chips.
Paired with a glass (or two) of Rose.
A good ole burger made to order! Need I say anything more? It was delicious, fresh and cooked perfectly. I also had a side of brussel sprouts because Benjy's brussel sprouts are truly amazing and some of the best I have had. The entire meal was so flavorful and paired perfectly with my Merlot.
Sorbet and Cookies
I am not a huge dessert fan but I must say, these cookies along with the watermelon sorbet was a nice end to a delicious meal. The waiter suggested this and I see why!
