I am in Love

I have fallen in love, I foresee a wonderful courtship, a short fling and then it will be over.

First off I feel I must put a disclaimer, I am not a foodie, I am not one of those people that searches out fusion food, food that sounds complicated and quite honestly weird. I will never be caught in the kitchen whipping up a little something.

I don’t cook, I never have, I do make some things and the things I do make are good. Not the best on earth, but edible.

But last night, oh last night I fell in love, hard, I fell hard and fast. A night out, dinner not from a soup can, or seaweed, a real plate, real food.

The Irishman wanted to go to Vickery Park, of course, unbeknownst to me, there was a soccer game on. He made it sound like he wanted to go out with me, however, I believe it was a hollow gesture that he didn’t honestly expect me to take him up on.

However, I did, and I decided to order the special, I am not sorry. First I’ll give you the menu, Honey Dijon Pork Chops, asparagus cordon bleu and blackberry whipped sweet potatoes with orange pecan pesto.

With the first bite I literally thought I had died and gone to heaven. The best thing I have ever put in my mouth and yes that includes any chocolate I have had up to now.

The combination of tastes and textures was nothing short of brilliant. I am not a gourmet or self-proclaimed food expert, but if I were you I would run to this place and get this special.

They change weekly, I have never had the dinner special, until now, only the brunch ones, which are always amazing. I will be going to dinner more often; this chef is nothing short of pure brilliance.

Cooking is too mundane to describe the pleasure this food brings. Is there another word for cooking? Cheffing? Who knows, I don’t, I just know you all need to go to Vickery Park in Dallas, TX, you will not be disappointed.

Oh and did I mention the specials are also specially priced? I received this bountiful, delicious meal for $10.00. Yes, $10.00. People, seriously, don’t put off trying one of Chef Pastel’s amazing meals.

Great service, great food and a wonderful atmosphere.
