There is just something about this cold and wet weather that brings out the need for comfort food and big glasses of luscious red wine. I’m bringing cozy comfort food to you from two amazing Houston spots that are as warm and comforting as chicken pot pie!
Speaking of chicken pot pie, Kenny & Ziggy’s New York Delicatessen currently has their infamous warm and flaky pot pie in stock. Kenny & Ziggy’s is known for their gigantic sandwiches, but their comfort food is truly over the top. Try their Hungarian Goulash with a rich gravy and chunks of beef and carrots or their Kugel with butternut squash. We’re always fans of their Cabbage Rolls and we never leave without a little sweet treat. Their Famous Torte, ‘Cheesecake Plain – But Incredibly Delicious’ and array of cookies are just like the ones you’d find in New York City!
We’re especially excited that Cleburne Cafeteria is back open! Not only is it the ultimate Houston kitchen for endless comfort food — like turkey and dressing year round! — but you can feel good about what you’re eating. Their meat is free of hormones and antibiotics and they source local produce year-round.
The next time you’re at Cleburne Cafeteria, try their Wild Caught Organic Salmon with Fresh Tomato Basil Sauce. Their delectable desserts are also a huge part of the experience and we absolutely love their Peach Cake.
When you’re all filled up on comfort food, grab a bottle of one of these amazing wine finds from H-E-B. They pair perfectly with a big comfy sweater and a blanket and ‘warm thoughts’!
