By The Bayou

This week, there has been too little this:


These Belgian truffle fries received an impromptu serenade from moi.

(Also could not leave out the picture of pear, Nutella and roasted almond crepes.)


And too much this for my liking:


I have never been happier for a Friday to come along. Although, I am sure I will say the same thing next week. Gravity is out in theaters and I was suppose to watch it today, but now have to wait for Friday night. I feel like I have not watched a movie for a really long time but it was actually the middle of May when The Great Gatsby came out in theaters. Crazy how time passes in my brain.

So instead of a movie, I went to eat at The Front Porch. Located in Bernal Heights, they dub themselves as “Southern Mission Hospitality”.

I did not notice that the restaurant is located in the garage of an house until I was editing this picture. You would not even notice sitting inside.

Also loved seeing them dress up the restaurant with Halloween decor. I do not celebrate much on the actual day, but it makes me happy because it means the holidays are right around the corner!


Okay, this was not the best example but inside had black and orange all over. Promise.

I found my new life motto.

“Tara, what do you think about the financial crisis happening in America?”

Fucket, get a bucket.


These little cornbread muffins were really filling! The dip was interesting, I had to ask the waitress. Honey and some kind of chili pepper, but it tasted a bit nutty to me. Hmmm.


I ordered the Spicy Shrimp + Grits: wild Louisiana shrimp, garlic, shallots & andouille sausage red eye gravy.


This burger is funny to me because the top bun reminded me of a shiny bald guy’s head and that’s all I could think about when the waitress brought it out.


Could not resist sharing the baked Mac ‘n’ Cheese, I have been on such a kick lately.

PS: I think my camera is lactose intolerant or something, I can never get a good shot. It just looks really blah when in reality it tastes like it was made in Zeus’ kitchen.


Going to polish this post off with my ice cream happy dance. Mitchell’s is only a block away and I could not resist a junior sized coffee and ube ice cream.


Have a great weekend! Xx

What’s your plans for the next two days? Have you/want to watch Gravity? How can you say no to George Clooney? He is my old celebrity crush! So dreamy.

  1. Oh My! Those pear, nutella and roasted almond crepes have me swooning – more than George Clooney in person would do! 🙂
    “fucket get a bucket” hahahaha!!!
    No major plans…maybe apple picking..dinner with parents and church…maybe watching Gravity – have heard some rave reviews about it!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend Tara!

  2. Shiny bald man’s head…you kill me! I’m so down with Zeus’ kitchen mac and cheese…adding this resto to my “fucket” list.

    Off to Minneapolis today! Visiting the BF’s fam and making my best attempts not to laugh at their accents. Have a great weekend!

  3. GO WATCH GRAVITY!!! And then email me so we can discuss! 🙂

    And wowowow – the food in this post looks unbelieveable, esp. the mac n’ cheese. And there’s always room for dessert…always!

  4. I don’t want to see Gravity but I feel like I should because everyone it saying it’s AMAAAAAZING. Who knows. I’m loving the “fucket get a bucket” slogan though….clever, clever and that burger bun? Definitely a bald man’s head haha

  5. I think you would do yourself a favour by going to Belgium- truffle fries, crepes, waffles and creme bulee galore 😉 Seeing as its Saturday evening, I’m about to head out for a cheeky pizza and beer (or wine…beer = vom com) and tomorrow have some friends over for brunch- hope your weekend goes off without a hitch buddy!

  6. loll on ‘fucket get a bucket’..
    The fries sounds so good and those crepes yum. The place look so good, will try it out sometime when in the city.
    Watched Gravity and was bummed when George Clooney drifted away…a bit slow but the effects were just stunning. Having a great weekend with dances and pooja, a lot to see in the Bay.

  7. That restaurant is so cute! I love that it’s in a garage. Your meal looked delicious but those crepes are calling my name! YUM!

    Don’t even get me started on the financial crisis in America. Brandon’s work might be shutting down if the government doesn’t get it together by next week. I’m freaking out because that means no paycheck for him if that happens. 🙁
