Chef Hugo Ortega Dazzles at Houston’s Backstreet Cafe

Linger awhile at Houston’s cozy Backstreet Cafe with James Beard award-winning chef Hugo Ortega. This locally-loved cafe is where Ortega got his start as a dishwasher, before winning the heart of its owner, Tracy Vaught. Together, they’ve started several restaurants and inspired countless more chefs in South Texas. You’ll be inspired to take just one more bite of Backstreet’s Brioche French Toast with caramelized bananas, house-made dulce de leche and peanut brittle. Get the recipe to Ortega’s Whole Roasted Gulf Snapper made with a rich Romesco sauce below.
