Today, I met DimSumGirl and her hubby at Al Aseel at 8619 Richmond between Hillcroft and Fondren.
I had heard of it in reference to the amazing fried chicken, but had never been. DSG had heard of the amazing lamb chops and asked me to meet them there during their brief visit to Houston.
So I did.
The fried chicken is crispy and juicy and just delicious.
But “Oh the Lamb Chops…”
Grilled over a wood fire, delicately seasoned and cooked to absolute perfection. I will dream of lamb chops tonight.
As you can see, both were served with rice and cucumber salad. We also had a nice appetizer plate with various dips, (babaganoush, hummus, and two others, and some beautiful hot sauce that they graciously packed to go for me), bread of course…
Very excellent, very inexpensive and the owner, his wife and staff could not have been nicer or more welcoming. I promised they would see me again, and they will. A true gem. Give them your business. I demand that you do.
Hopefully, DSG will pop in to give us her take, but I can tell you in advance that they liked it as well. Thanks to her for prompting me to visit this place just 1600 miles from her, but only ten minutes from me!
