Sunday (after church) is usually when restaurants and brunch spots have the longest wait times. This is the time that everyone is finally able to get together and the one thing I’ve learned about this country is that families usually gather when there’s food involved. Today’s Restaurant Tour post is stopping at the Dish Society.
I’ve actually never been to this restaurant before so you can imagine my excitement at not only brunch with friends but brunch with friends at a restaurant I’ve never visited! Located on San Felipe, Dish Society is a great place to go if you’re hungry but you’re not trying to do too much.
It has a hipster feel that reminds me of one of the restaurants you’d find in Austin, TX. It’s not your typical sit down restaurant, you actually order your food then take your number to your seat where your meal will be brought out to you. Their brunch selection was pretty appetizing. Their drinks were similar to that of the famous Torchys, organic and delicious. The way that your food is brought out to you resembles the way Torchys does it too now that I think about it.
I ordered the Brisket and Eggs and was happy that I did. Instead of the sunny side up style eggs that usually comes with the meal, I decided to get mine scrambled. The Brisket was so tender and the tomatillo relish sauce really gave it a pretty nice kick. The smokey gouda grits made me want to go on Pinterest and find the recipe but the biscuits… boy oh boy those house buttermilk biscuits hit the spot! I wanted to spend time enjoying every bite by eating slowly but my stomach had other plans.😭
My brother had The Biscuit and Chicken. He didn’t seemed to enthused by the overall meal but he did like the biscuit itself. His sweet potatoes unfortunately were a bust (they actually tasted like carrots). It was semi – warm and was just over all unpleasant. If you’re still interested in trying this dish, I would suggest maybe substituting it for the smokey grits but that’s just my opinion.
Overall, I’m definitely adding this stop to my list of brunch spots. I love trying somewhere new and not regretting my decision. Man those biscuits really saved the day. Whether you have an appetite the size of a horse or you’re just looking for a relaxed afternoon meal, Dish Society would be a good option for you. Their meal portions are very generous but what made me love the place even more was the fact that they had an outside fan. Yes I said it! They had a fan outside for the people who didn’t want to sit inside and eat. Thank God for restaurants that actually care about the well being of their customers! 😭
P.s. I heard their shrimp and grits tasted pretty good as well. I more than likely will be making my way back here again, if not for the shrimp and grits then for the biscuits!
