Happy Thursday! I don’t know about you but I’m super excited to spend Easter with friends and family. We normally have a traditional Sunday dinner for Easter but this year I’ll be going to brunch, yay! If you don’t feel like cooking this weekend, no worries get by Sweetie Pie’s Houston.
This past Saturday my taste buds were on cloud 9! When I arrived at Sweetie Pie’s, there was no wait and no line. I literally had to pinch myself. If you’ve been following all the traffic on Facebook you’d know that’s unheard of. This place gets packed so I suggest going early or calling in your order to-go. Upon my arrival, I was starving. On that particular day, I skipped breakfast so I was eager to skim through the menu. After a short and sweet conversation with my waiter, he recommended I order the blackened fish. Of course, I said yes! I selected two of my favorite sides; collard greens and macaroni & cheese.
While waiting for my plate I scanned the room to see what other patrons were ordering. I saw a little bit of everything from fried chicken, black-eyed peas, cabbage, shrimp, pork chops, grits, dressing, rice and gravy, cornbread, fried green tomatoes, waffles, shrimp, and grits. Although the menu is on one page it’s endless. I was so excited and couldn’t wait to taste my food!
After a 15 minute wait, I set my eyes on a beautiful display of love. The fish was perfect and seasoned precisely the way I like it! My collard greens were remarkable and they were marinated with the right amount of spice. I’ll be completely honest the macaroni was mediocre. Next time, I’ll substitute for the cornbread dressing or sweet potato souffle.
Overall, I thought the food was good and I enjoyed the atmosphere. They play an array of classic R&B, old school hits, and hip hop. I certainly recommend adding Sweetie Pie’s Houston to your must-try list!
