It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post, no worries, I have been busy tasting delicious food to share with you. I recently joined a few other food writers to meet and sample some travel inspired dishes by Chef Alberto Alfonzo of Pesca World Seafood Restaurant, which Is located at 2015 West Gray, Houston, Texas.
During our visit, Chef Alberto cooked up a medley of tasty mouth watering appetizers, entrees, and desserts.

First up are the “Beef Empanadas”, which are made with beef, potatoes, served with a side of avocado chimichurri sauce. This was my favorite, the crust was light and crispy, the beef and potatoes were well seasoned, the avocado chimichurri sauce was incredible. The sauce was light, creamy, and bursting with the right amount of acidity, which was a perfect flavor compliment to the empanadas.
My second favorite was the “Pretzel Crab Cakes“, made with lump crab meat, pretzel dust, mustard cream and roasted pepper coulis. The crab cakes were meaty, the crab meat was sweat, and this dish melted in my mouth with every bite.
Finally, the dessert which is a Venezuelan inspired cake, called “The Thousand Layer Cake“, since your mouth is already watering, just lead with your eyes, breathe in, then out and imagine enjoying this decadent treat with a nice hot cup of coffee. Enjoy!
