Brunch Restaurant Review : Bernadines

image

Looking for a new Brunch spot in Houston, then you definitely need to give Bernadine’s a try. Thanks to my friends over at the @thrillist, for the recommendation. Bernadine’s has a very modern look . My God daughter, Savannah was my date, she kept busy looking the scenery. Nothing better than having brunch in a soothing environment. For appetizers, I ordered some fresh oysters from Canada and a Oyster shooter. The oyster shooter was pretty interesting, it’s a shot made of Tabasco, vodka, and an oyster. It was amazing, if you love oysters, you should definitely try this Sizzling shot. After doing some research on what to order I chose to order the Black pepper biscuit Rockefeller, lumped crab, fried oysters, and eggs. Needless to say I made the right choice. From the fresh-layered biscuit to the crunchy fried oysters, it had my taste buds dancing for more. For drinks I had a classic mimosa which was pretty strong ( just the way I like it ) and a strawberry margarita with jalapeños. Yes, jalapeños!, Lol the sweet and spicy combination made this drink so good. Some other perks about Bernadine’s is that there is a free valet and the all the staff were quiet welcoming. I give Bernadine’s a 9/10. Also, guess what ? I’m an official member of the Houston Heights drinking and social club. Yipee! I hope this brunch review helps. Keep on brunching foodies!

Set up your ingredients, like above. I  like to fry my rice in batches. So in a frying pan heat up 2 tbsp of oil. Throw in a small handfull of onions and green pepers, saute for 30 seconds. Then next add in a handful of veggies, stir fry for one minute. Next up add in 1 hand full of beef. Then finally add in the rice. Stir fry for another 1 minute.  Season each batch with curry powder. Repeat the above steps for every batch.
