Each week I travel the state looking for delicious finds. This week we struck gold! Catch a new episode of Goodtaste with Tanji this weekend, June 25-26, in select cities. A full listing of showtimes below!
On the hunt for some great Texas BBQ? You’re in the right place! Killen’s Barbecue in Pearland, TX specializes in mouthwatering brisket, ribs by the pound and other eye-popping entrées. You’ll want to take a seat at this table right away…otherwise plan to wait in line! Repeat customers from all over the country come for Owner/Chef Ronnie Killen’s smoked meats. They’re THAT good! Chef Ronnie lets us in on a few secrets – smoking tips for your brisket plus the recipe to one of the most popular sides on the menu, the BBQ Baked Beans.
Be sure to stick around for dessert…the Crème Brûlée Bread Pudding [above] was named by Food & Wine as one of the Best Restaurant Dishes in the country!
POWER PLANT TEXAS GRILL
A new spot on the banks of the Guadalupe River with a gorgeous view! The Power Plant Texas Grill is a not-so hidden gem in Seguin, TX, housed inside an abandoned, hundred year old power plant. If ever there was a place to kick back and enjoy the beauty all around, it’s here! Surging back to life, this one-of-a-kind restaurant has preserved the plant’s authentic look and feel, over and above some good home cookin’! Where else can you float the river AND feast?!
A giant open-air patio with live music on the weekends makes Power Plant a diamond in the rough!
GROVE WINE BAR & KITCHEN
Hear the story behind the deal makers and delicious dishes at one of Austin’s most popular wine dives, The Grove Wine Bar & Kitchen. It’s the perfect neighborhood hangout to laugh with friends and loved ones, have a glass a wine and nosh on an array of New American cuisine. The thin crust pizzas are popular, as is the bruschetta (10 different varieties) and their pastas. All of the food, however, is made with wine pairings in mind. Over 200 wines – 50 by the glass – make up a distinguished list that’s hard to beat. Some glasses are even marked as low as $5 a bottle!
The patio at The Grove is also like no other – shaded under a lush canopy of oak and cottonwood trees in downtown. Escape and unwind this summer!
