It just doesn’t feel like we’ve really returned to ATX…
We have a new-ish bar/cafe in our hood, and we’ve been there approximately 732 times since it opened this spring. Of those 732 times, I have ordered the same cocktail (the Chili Parlor) 732 times. (Do you like rum, lime, and pineapple? Do you like it a little spicy? You’re gonna love the Chili Parlor!)
All that to say, we love Better Half.
We love it at brunch, with ham-stuffed biscuits, and English muffins filled with ripe tomatoes, crunchy hashbrowns, fried egg, arugula, and smoked paprika aioli. And the Chili Parlor.
We love it for afternoon drinks. AKA the Chili Parlor.
We love it for pre-meal snacks of crispy mushrooms and fries (and the Chili Parlor).
The ham flight is pretty insane. (I had the Chili Parlor.)
The S’mores Cake is amazing (after you’ve had the Chili Parlor).
Sometimes I work there in the afternoons and snack on cauliflower tots with beet ketchup (and a Chili Parlor).
Just go, peeps. Order the Chili Parlor. You won’t regret it.
