It’s been TOO LONG since I posted here on my blog. Thanks to my 9-5 job, I have been super busy, shooting videos, live tweeting, and posting on instagram like, all the time. I am grateful tho, it really is a fun job.
In the midst of the craziness of our schedule, I always try to squeeze in a little family time. And since I was hosting my brother and dad for 2 weeks back in October, I had the opportunity to take them around, to experience the best of Dallas. One of which was, Perle on Maple restaurant at the stunning Stoneleigh hotel.
My brother is an excellent musician and videographer, and thanks to him, my photos and instagram stories look extra good this time hahah. Let’s jump right in to the food part, shall we?
We had Baked Local Goat Cheese with Texas Olive Oil, garlic, and baguette and it was divine! Mr. Man is usually not a fan of goat cheese, but even he couldn’t stop spreading this one on his baguettes. It was not too overbearing, just right. And when you add the garlic, ooohhh…The best.
I opted for the Duck Breast with curry rub, pecans, cherries, and wild rice, and y’all. It was such a great combo! The duck was cooked perfectly, and the sauce really compliments it. Loved the crunch from the pecans as well!
Mr. Man had the Striped Bass with “Perle” Cous Cous, and y’all that sauce really elevated the dish! The crispiness of the skin gave a lot of flavor to it too, and it was overall a hearty yet light dish that he was happy with.
My dad and bro decided to split the Steak Frites. The creamy sauce they poured on top was everything!
Our fabulous dining experience at Perle on Maple had a happy ending of course, with some Crème Brûlée and ice cream-filled French cream puffs A.K.A Profiteroles taking us straight to cloud nine.
We also tried their Old Fashioned and paired some of our dishes with a couple of wines from their impressive selection. Don’t hesitate to ask your waiter for a recommendation the next time you come here, they’re very knowledgeable and interactive!
It was my dad and bro’s second night in town and I’m glad I was able to welcome them to the city with a bang. Where do you like to take your loved ones for dinner in Dallas? :)
