Old fashioned in Dallas...
Hey ya'll !
I was in Dallas a couple of months ago and I ate at a charming restaurant somewhere near the Inwood, I think... It was an old fashioned parlor with booths and home made cooking. They had okra, sweet corn bread, it was wonderful...
I had a dish of crispy fried chicken, mashed potates, corn, sweet corn bread and some sort of white gravy...
Does anyone know which resturant I'm talking about?
Or at least can give the recipe of that delicious gravy?
I would say it was no doubt Celebration if in that vacinity. Kel's is probably 5 or 6 miles from there at best and at the site of an old Pizza Inn. What did the place look like inside or out, that would make it much easier to identify.
Unless the place looked like the inside of an old Wyatt's Cafeteria (Dunston's) then it's Celebration.
To answer your question OP....call the restaurant in question and ask for the recipe. Most 'home style' cooks are very generous people. If not my dirty little secret is a package of Pioneer gravy mix. Made in San Antonio and comes in several "flavors"...black pepper, sausage, plain. Try this...brown and drain your fave pan sausage (chop it up into little pieces as you cook it.) and add into the gravy prepared as directed. Serve over fresh, hot homemade biscuits.
