I have been pondering to visit a real farm in Texas and guess, this trip was like a dream that came true to me. We arrived at Brazos de Dios an hour past noon adn stopped right in front of a log cabin. Reading the crystal clear signage of 'Deli & Bakery', our growling stomach signaled that was the destination to tuck in.
As we entered the Homestead Deli which is also served as Visitor's Center, both dining chambers on our left and right were fully occupied. We peeked hoping to eye for a vacant table but there was no luck. Then, a veteran lady approached me and asked whether we were taken care of. She later noted down our name to queue on the wait-list. In less than 10 minutes, we were ushered into the left-dining chamber. We sat near the kitchen and the aroma of the food served here made me drooling! I was getting hungrier .
To begin with, we opted for a big bowl of Jalapeno Sweet Potato Soup and a piece of deep-fried raspberry pie as appetizer. Glazed with some cheese, this piece is truly fabulous!
For main entree, we decided to go for Sliced Brisket Sandwich. It was made of all-natural grass-fed beef and served hot with BBQ sauce on their whole wheat sesame bun with some sliced onions, pickle and potato chips.
There are plenty of choices for desserts ranging from cakes, breads, pies, donuts and even ice-cream. All of these are made at their community from all-natural ingredients.
I had been eying on the ice-cream since the beginning so I would not want to leave the Deli with any regret. The server staff spooned a couple for us to try and we finally went for carob and vanilla. Although my first choice was sorghum, unfortunately it was sold out. So if I were to get there again, the first thing to do is to attack sorghum - a flavor that is hardly (perhaps never exist) available in my home country!
To describe in a word for the service, people and food is none other than EXCELLENT! Offerring delicious and nutritious meals, Homestead Heritage Deli also serves a unique recipes of old-fashioned standards. And don't forget to take home a few loaves of daily baked whole wheat bread too!
Love to be back again!
