We’re calling our coastal cuisine lovers this weekend on Goodtaste with Tanji! We’re taking you to the Gulf Coast for one memorable and mouthwatering maritime affair, then we’ll reel in New Orleans’ best eats in the Bayou City. Plus, you’ll love Fredericksburg’s wonderful “warehouse” for all things organic and delicious!
Plus, all new wine pairings and a new seafood recipe from Goya Foods. SET YOUR DVR and scroll for show times below!
Rudy & Paco
Dock in Galveston for one of the most exquisite dining experiences in the Coastal Bend! Rudy & Paco is known for its sensational surf and turf that got started more than 20 years ago, with fresh seafood that comes from just a few blocks away. Since then, it’s been named one of the ‘Top 100 Restaurants in the Nation’ and ‘Most Romantic Restaurants’ by Open Table. One bite into one of their “right off the boat” Jumbo Crab Cakes lingering in a bath of chipotle cream sauce (above) and you’ll know why people from all over the world come to Rudy & Paco. It’s the hospitality here that sets this seafood star apart from the rest, from an owner whose American Dream will inspire you.
Garden fresh, locally-sourced organic produce from the Hill Country is headed your way! We’re taking you to Woerner Warehouse in Fredericksburg where the good eats are gleaming out of this former feed store turned antique shop and restaurant! It’s a sun-filled spot where you’ll find “Linda’s Salad,” named for a customer, with curried chicken salad, toasted almonds and vibrant sprouts (above), but also big cinnamon rolls and creamy coconut pies. Everything here is scratch-made from a delightful owner who brought her family and best friends along for a delicious ride. This weekend, she will show you how to prepare her crazy good crab cakes.
The Rouxpour Restaurant & Bar
Jazzy jambalaya, sizzling chargrilled oysters and endless fun! Everything we love about New Orleans is right here at The Rouxpour Restaurant & Bar in Sugar Land. It’s year-round Mardi Gras at this French Quarter-inspired spot, where jazz and Sazeracs are always on tap! You’re in for fresh Gulf oysters and shrimp (above) with homemade sauces, just like you’d find in the Big Easy. Plus, their bread pudding with whiskey sauce is truly something to be celebrated — you’ll get the recipe this weekend!
Don’t forget about my wine finds! This weekend, I’m sharing the best ‘bang for your buck’ bottles. Plus, a brand new seafood recipe from our friends at Goya Foods!
