Kerbey Lane Fall Menu is Here!

Please note that I sampled these dishes as part of a Kerbey Lane Fall Menu Tasting.  As always, all thoughts & opinions are honest & my own. 

Even though it's still a toasty 90+ degrees most days in Austin, fall is on it's way.  Soon(ish) we'll be able to go outside without melting, & my morning cup of hot coffee won't leave me blasting the AC in the car during my commute.

But, we don't have to wait for temps to dip below 80 to enjoy the Kerbey Lane Fall Menu.  It's now available at all locations!

We recently ventured over to the South Lamar location to try a few Fall Menu items out.  You need to get yourself to the nearest Kerbey Lane and try some of these Autumn-inspired goodies.  We were so pleased with the everything we tasted!

We started out by sampling the Frito Pie, which was filled with Akaushi beef.  Just like the Frito Pies you had at Friday night football games....but so much better.   Akaushi beef, a Japenese Wagyu breed of cattle from HeartBrand Beef, is raised locally & featured throughout the Fall menu.  You can really taste the quality.  HeartBrand Beef is raised hormone & antibiotic free & their cattle are fed an all-natural, vegetarian diet.

We then moved on to the Texas Benedict.  I always love trying the different Eggs Benedict that are part of the seasonal Kerbey Lane menus, but this guy may be my favorite version.  Two huge pieces of sweet, thick cornbread topped with queso, pico, Akaushi steak, avocado & of course two perfectly poached eggs.  It's decadent, delicious & all I could want in breakfast.  A must-try.

Texas Street Tacos, again featuring Akaushi steak, were a great mix of flavors & textures.  Warm corn tortillas are stuffed with steak, caramelized onions, tomato, bright cilantro & topped with queso fresco.  A refreshing guacamole salad is served on the side....because what taco isn't made tastier with a little avocado?

Our final entree of the evening was a creamy, cozy Pork Belly Mac & Cheese.  I was immediately enamored with how oozy, gooey, cheesy the mac & cheese was.  If you think everything is better with a little more cheese (me!) you will be very happy.  It reminded me of my Mom's cheesy macaroni.  And that's a very good thing.

I loved the addition of pimentos & fresh parsley, it added a nice pop of brightness to the dish.
