Its Crawfish Season!

Down in the south, we are celebrating Crawfish season with what else but A LOT of CRAWFISH! The weather right now in Houston is perfect, the summer heat hasn't stung yet, so we are still enjoying our version of winter with light cool winds at night, and warm sunny days, but the best times are the evenings where you get to experience the best of both times as the clear blue skies transition to beaded starry nights. Pull out your pots and start that Crawfish boil, or if you're like me and do better on the eating front, check out the BB cafe, they have several locations all around Houston and trust me you don't want to miss this one!




My friend and I headed over to the one in the Heights. Crawling with locals alike it takes about 45 mins to get a seat at the restaurant, or if you're impatient like me, you can head over to their pop up tent and do self-serve right away, and share the table with some friendly seafood lovers as you pass the time chatting and patiently awaiting the glorious feast that you're about to divulge into, (that is if you don't mind foldable chairs and tables). In fact, I actually encourage you to sit in the outdoor tent, you get this feeling of a big summer cookout, and everyone is so cheery and happy that it makes the experience a whole lot more exciting!

They have two menus, a regular and the seasonal crawfish one. We headed straight for the Crawfish one. Personally, I like the simplicity of the menu, it guarantees consistency in taste especially when the restaurant is swamped with customers all ordering the same damn thing. 


Bibbed up and ready for the feast to begin! 


 After waiting for what felt like  15 minutes or so, and starring down every other order that came out nearby our table, our food finally arrived!


Time for that big reveal! 




Just look at that happy face.

We got an order of 3 pounds, with a side of corn, potato, and some of 
that delicious crawfish dipping sauce.

This being my first time eating Crawfish, I needed a bit of assistance on how to
go about actually getting to the meat. The trick is to bend it left and right, 
pull off the head, and then crack the tail to get the meat out.

 

Clearly, I'm a happy clamper. ;)
(I feel like that pun wasn't very funny..but I couldn't resist)


The Crawfish is super flavorful but if you want a little extra kick order a 
side of the dipping sauce.

The sauce also goes great with an order of fries!




In fact, I actually suggest you get a side order of their regular fries. They were the perfect thin crispy kind that I love. I suggest the plain ones, but you could also get the cajun ones if you like. Honestly, they were a bit too salty for my taste; however, if you do want that seasoning I suggest asking them to lightly season it. But in all honesty, regular fries dipping in that dipping sauce was blissful heaven. 


Time seemed to stop whilst eating not realizing that the night sky had already caught onto us. I guess time flies when you're having fun! 

 If you've never had Crawfish before, I suggest you head down to the best place in Houston for some. The great thing about BB's is that they keep their menu simple, but oh so delicious that it blows minds. I usually find myself waiting at restaurants for the bulk of time for my food to arrive and spending about 15 minutes actually eating it. But at BB's I did the opposite, and really enjoyed every minute of my meal. The staff is super friendly, and although it was super packed, the atmosphere is very relaxed and super efficient. You don't feel the commotion because you're so engrossed in the delicious food. This one is a must for me, and I will definitely be back before the season is over!
