Who says no to a lush lunch? — lol… not me
Where did I go to?
I went to State Fare Kitchen and Bar
Do I have to make reservations online?
You can make reservations online or just walk in, I am sure they’d be more than happy to get serve you.
But, isn’t there an ongoing pandemic?
Amidst the ongoing pandemic, some businesses are running with precautionary measures such as enforcing the 6 feet social distancing rule, offering sanitizers to customer, and/or directing them to the hand washing stalls — as a matter of fact, if you are not wearing a mask you won’t be allowed to enter or be served.
Now that I have have answered some potential FAQs you might have… let’s get into how it went.
“State Fare Kitchen and Bar is a homestyle southern kitchen that offers over 70 recipes including many local favorites. They also offer kids (12 and under) menu. and carries premium wines, cocktails, beer and non alcoholic beverages. The setting is an absolute eye catch especially for someone who loves to take pictures”
On getting to there and settling in, I was warmly received by the waiters and pointed to a table in the diner section. I hurriedly grabbed the Happy Hour menu, believe me when I say I was lost for a second cus of the variety the menu carried, after much contemplation I settled for the Frozen Margarita
For appetizer, I went with the Bayou Bacon Wrapped Shrimp that consisted of Texas caviar, jalapeño cheese, house bbq, smoked carrot purée. As I bit my way through every piece on this plate there was a savory burst of flavor in my mouth. Left to me, I couldn’t just come in terms with the fact that this delicious dish would finish.
I wouldn’t recommend this if you do not eat pork.
Now we all know after appetizers, comes the main dish. I had said forehand that I wanted some rice, regardless of whatever I get, I would order rice as the side because of the unusual cravings I’ve had for it these past days. As I glanced through the menu for the second time my eye caught the Shrimp & Andouille Étouffée (which consists of fried catfish, shrimp, bits of andouille sausage, and white rice), as we know, there can’t be étouffée without rice, I didn’t hesitate placing an order. This cajun dish took me to Bourbon Street and back, in all it was a hit.
I also wouldn’t recommend this if you do not eat pork.
You would be able to get a decent meal between $25-$40.
There is a $3 split charge.
Overall, its a 4 out of 5 rating for me!
