Urban Kitchen: Energy Corridor’s best kept secret!
March 18, 2015
Urban Kitchen is my new favorite place in west Houston. Located in the Energy Corridor this brunch, lunch and dinner spot is where you should be if you love a classic mix of dishes with an “urban twist”. It’s a fantastic neighborhood eatery that is great for the whole family!
As we all know, brunch in the city can be plain crazy at times forcing us to have to travel further or throw our hands up in defeat and cook our own damn meals..because that’s a brilliant solution (in my sarcastic voice). So the Mr. and I decided to check this place out and we were thoroughly surprised with the venue, quality of service and the FOOD!
A “boozy brunch” is a banging brunch in my opinion and what I loved about Urban Kitchen was that they have a special sangria that is made daily in house. Order their Top Shelf Sangria. It’s kicked up a notch with rum, fresh citrus and muddled mint. Let the day drinking begin!
I try to eat a balance of bad and good.. where in a perfect world the good out weighs the bad. So when I read that my favorite brunch meal, the shrimp and grits came with sauteed kale I immediately ordered that without looking any further. Delicious decision.
My husband ordered a Belgium waffle and inhaled it so it must have been great (you can see it in the video). He also ordered the Original Benedict, it was a tad over cooked, but tasty. The potatoes and fruit were great accompaniments.
Our waiter Kyle H. was by far one of the best waiters that I have had while dining. He was knowledgeable about the menu, what he liked and what he suggested we try. We took every recommendation he gave and all of them were 5 stars but the icing on the cake were the Chef’s Doughnut holes. These heavenly holes are made in house, filled with ricotta cheese and rolled in cinnamon & sugar.
They are then laid to rest on a bed of caramel and berry garnish which is dusted with powdered sugar as a final touch from God. Ugh.. I ate them all.
