New menu items at BB's Tex-Orleans conjure up even more flavor
A brand-new menu has hit the table at BB's Tex-Orleans, the Cajun eatery with 12 Houston-area locations serving up traditional Southern Louisiana-style cooking with a Texas twist.
Just in time for summer, the new dishes span fresh fish ceviche to Nashville hot chicken, with plenty of po' boys, seafood, and Southern staples like gumbo and shrimp and grits to round it all out.
Explore the pastabilities with the Morgan City Crawfish Fettuccine Pasta or get spicy with the chimichurri-drenched Steak South America.
Dig into combos like the El Tejaneaux, which includes three empanadas, one boudin flauta with verde cream sauce, red beans and rice, and choice of one side. Or order Da Cray Cajun, crawfish étouffée over white rice with fried fish.
Even the salads got expanded. Welcome the Kale Steak Salad, which not only features tenderized skirt steak but also Honeycrisp apples, candied pecans, tomato, and a blue cheese vinaigrette.
And don't worry: The best boiled seafood in town is still happening daily. Choose from snow crab, Dungeness crab, or shrimp and then build your tray just how you like it, whether that means the Tex-Orleans or Louisiana way. Fill it up with your choice of button mushrooms, corn, red potatoes, edamame, Brussels sprouts, greens, and four kinds of sausage (including spicy alligator andouille).
Or let BB's make the choices for you, with boil experiences served family-style. Grab your family, friends, or even your neighbors to help tuck into a mountain of shrimp, crab, or combo of both, all the trimmings and extras included.
You can even add Loaded Pollo Bullets to your boil. If you're not familiar with these little bursts of flavor, it's chicken stuffed with cream cheese and jalapeños and wrapped in bacon. Order them to start your meal, and they also come with a side of Cajun cream sauce.
"We are excited to launch a more expansive menu that extends beyond our Cajun roots and continues building upon our culinary legacy," says Brooks Bassler, founder and CEO of BB's Tex-Orleans." We've unveiled a fresh perspective on Tex-Orleans cooking, while staying true to our Cajun with a Texas twist roots."
Tempted to pick a new favorite? You'll have to come and try each dish to narrow down the choices, and even then it might feel impossible to crown a winner.
Don't forget that Houston Restaurant Weeks is coming up, and BB's Tex-Orleans is featuring a few of its new, expanded menu items on the course list. It's a great reason to dine out to do good, and taste-test your new favorite dishes.
