Some nights, you just want something warm and familiar. Last night was one of those nights, so we went Casey's, to our favorite cafeteria in Northlake. The food is good and plentiful. The fried chicken is my favorite, with an excellent crust. They cut the chicken into smaller pieces, which sounds like torture, but allows me to taste without feeling I'm going to excess. The greens are quite good. The cornbread is tasty. Green Jello caps off the meal. Who could ask for more?
I just enjoyed a delicious, hearty dinner at Janet's Kitchen. It is located on Clairmont near Scott Boulevard. The restaurant is well-organized for both dining in and takeout. The prices are quite reasonable, too. The owners, who are very nice people who clearly love what they do, explained that Janet is his mom and that they named the restaurant after her. My pork adobo was hearty and delicious. The sauce was tangy, nicely salty, and very, very porky. I actually ate all the beans first---creamy and delicious. The rice was sticky, all the better for sopping up gravy. I also used the buttery cornbread to soak up the sauce.
