This weekend I finally got to visit Burlap.

It. Was. Awesome.

The "Asian Cowboy" concept is presented to you by an award winning trio,
celebrity chef Brian Malarkey, nightlife and hospitality mogul James Brennan, and designer extraordinaire Thomas Schoos.

Yes, these are the same guys that gave us Searsucker

Thank you, gentlemen. 
Your efforts are much appreciated. 

So what the hell is "Asian Cowboy" cuisine anyway?
Well, it's pretty much my dream come true. 

It's where the "west eats meat", 
and the menu offers a hybrid of meat, seafood, and bold sides, 
with an Asian influence. 

Sounds awesome, right?

The hubs and I visited during brunch time,
but were happy to find a generous selection that ranges from 
pulled pork, sesame spinach & balsamic eggs benedict,
to "phramen", a mix between ramen and pho (omg, dream come true).

I personally recommend you start off with some squid.
It may have been the BEST I've ever had. 
And I eat a lot of squid, you dig?

So, what do you think?
Will you give Burlap a go??
