Amarillo Texas Food
I left the plane in the dark at 6 a.m. on Monday and landed in Arillo, Texas, a small town about an hour and a half south of Austin. I witnessed the ranch world and the fact that Texas is the heartland of ranching.
Calico County is everything there is, but the really unique thing about Amarillos is the abundance of food options, from tacos to tacos and everything in between. There are so many ways that the food gets overloaded with tacos.
The restaurant is owned by Joe and Patricia Murguia and is known for serving some of the best Mexican dishes in town. They offer a wide selection of tacos, as well as a wide selection of wine and beer, and for $5 you get a wine because you are a wino.
Other lunch favorites range from freshly prepared comfort sandwiches to Indian cuisine and hearty tacos. Indian Oven has many vegan options and is always very helpful when ordering. Other breakfast favorites from the chef include the Time - American fare - and the Thai breakfast sandwich. Thai food, as well as some of my favourite Bangkok dishes I ate earlier in the weekend.
That means they take a perfectly good steak and make it even better by frying it with chicken and then butchering it in country sauce. The fried chicken steak with mashed potatoes and sauce or fried chicken with sauce and a side of sweet potato fries.
The scrambled eggs, a platter of eggs, served with beef, pork, red or green sauce, and a side with sweet potato fries. Fill it with a scrambled egg or serve it with chicken or beef or pork with red and green sauces. Try it on a plate with sweet potatoes and sauce or even alone as a sandwich or in a salad.
The handmade corn tortillas are widely considered the best Amarillos and are made by hand. The salsa is fresh and the carne asada is always an excellent choice, but I love the homemade salsa with the sweet potato fries and a side of sweet potatoes. It's a brilliant choice for authentic soft Mexican tacos with shell, so I loved them all, even those with chicken or beef or pork.
If it's a little more difficult in Amarillo, check out the other restaurants in the area, such as El Dorado, El Cajon and El Paso, if you're looking for them.
To get a taste of the ultimate fusion of Amarillo cuisine, I suggest ordering the green chilli chicken and the fried steak. Chef Josh Fuller, however, ventured out with Thai and Korean flavours, and it was fantastic.
I like Bangkok - fried rice, but I love the spicy chicken with green chilli sauce, and the sweet-spicy kale salad is dying. I feel that everything on Delvin's menu is not exceptional, so I'll throw in the scratch - baked goods and brunchery for a quick lunch or dinner.
The grass-fed burger is particularly popular as it contains pulled pork, pork belly, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cheddar cheese. If you feel playful, then the house - preferably the chicken - is a fried steak with sweet and sour sauce and a spicy mustard sauce. You will love the local famous and delicious buttercake, but if you want something more traditional like a hot dog or a burger, try YCSF. There is a good selection of fried chicken steaks and chicken and pork chops, as well as a variety of burgers and sandwiches.
The Coyote Bluff Cafe is a run-down shack, and that's not a derogatory term, just the honest truth. This spot may bring you down a pants or two, but it's full of good food, great service and everything else that slows your heart down to a tick.
The OHMS menu takes local ingredients to the next level, separating the difference between fine amarillo and homely, combining pork ribs with rice and seasonal vegetables. With a huge menu, you will find everything you would expect from a straightforward Italian restaurant. The menu is peppered with inspired takes on classic dishes such as pork chops (pictured above) and spaghetti bolognese.
Fenugreek chicken is comfort food at its finest and fried pastries with spiced potatoes and peas are a delicious accompaniment. The dish is served with a gluten-free dish - corn bread and stuffed samosas, as well as a spicy chicken and rice salad.
Admittedly, I had been bathing fatty meat in sauce, which left my stomach feeling sorry for myself, but that is exactly what the doctor ordered. I can't remember having behaved with the Frito Pie, so I would find it really hard to get it back, even with a gluten-free version.
