On a Cold Winter’s Night

3-Alarm Arabica Chili

Count on the following foods for insulation this winter. Thus far, the weather has been anything but predictable! Expect our nights to remain windy and brisk in the city with temperatures dipping into the high 30’s by the time bars let out. That’s where these hearty, homestyle dishes come into play – the type that warm your bones to the core and remind you you’re ALIVE!

A diverse assortment of hot plates oh so satisfying…

La Hacienda’s Menudo


Hangovers aren’t the only occasion for this legendary menudo from the Barrios family in San Antonio. 😉 Served piping hot with finely chopped serrano chiles (as garnish) and warm corn or flour tortillas.

Love a low maintenance meal! Pad your roux with just about any protein (turkey, duck, chicken or pork) and don’t touch it! Let it simmer for about 2 hours and enjoy over cooked rice.

PhoNatic’s Chicken Pho


Classic Vietnamese noodle soup that doesn’t mess around when it comes to broth, slow cooking for up to 8 hours for optimal flavor. This pho features hand pulled chicken, cilantro, onion, sprouts, jalapeño, lime and Thai basil. Healthy – plus the aromas are intoxicating!

Garbo’s New England Clam Chowder


Authentic, east coast clam chowder found in our own backyard. Garbo’s in Austin serves theirs ‘New England’ style with the delectable oyster crackers you see above.
