|I'm getting tired of seeing captions like this...|
|Here's the ultimate in Bad Blogging Form: showing a restaurant dish partially eaten!! Gross!! But my daughter and I were so happy to finally get decent restaurant food that taking photos took a distant back seat to enjoyment.|
|I have yet to find a single decent gourmet pizza source anywhere in greater Houston, even though Houston is the eating capital of America.|
|This should clarify the matter. Artisanal ingredients (to the extent possible) are worth paying for because the taste is so much better. |
Screengrabbed from the Marye's Gourmet Pizza website.
- Feedlot beef (recognizable by its taste)
- Factory-farmed vegetables, and/or
- Farm-raised fish that tastes like little more than antibiotic-ridden alfalfa, no matter what atrocious oil-ridden paste it's "smothered" in.
|Irrespective of the moral implications, how could anything raised in these conditions taste even remotely good?!|
This is a screengrab of a "we don't do this" cattle feedlot example pic shown by Live Oak Natural Beef as a counterpoint to their own operations. These types of smaller artisanal farms and ranches are becoming increasingly popular for obvious reasons - because they supply an alternative healthier grass-fed, non-mass-produced product that simply tastes a whole lot better. People will gladly pay for stuff that tastes better.

|Hell, for that matter, you can buy the stuff on Amazon. |
It's just a pancake, but it's a good one. I'm not looking for gourmet 5-star exotic restaurants. Just simple restaurants that offer better-tasting dishes based on higher-quality ingredients.
Oh and by the way, the ingredients in the box are allegedly not exactly the same as the ingredients in the restaurant pancakes, because obviously they need to keep luring people back to the restaurants, so they can't give away every secret. You have to go to Kerbey Lane Café itself to get the true original pancakes.
