Think fast: What do Woody Woodpecker and Wyatt Earp have in common?
They taste awesome on a pretzel bun!
Wait, what? Read on my friend…
Skallywag Suds N’ Grub, located literally right inside the Kemah Lighthouse District at 600 6th Street, has just recently unveiled their new menu to the delight of the foodie crowd. You will need to keep in mind that this is not your generic pub grub. Think Southern-fusion, exotic-game burgers, smoked meat sandwiches, and many more scrumptious menu items that will call your name. Skallywag offers daily “food truck-esque” styled food.
“Our food pairs well with our 40-plus beers on tap,” said owner Demetri Kouloumoundras. “Our kitchen is set up for those who need to grab and go, or for those who want to use the bar or perimeter seating and enjoy Skallywag’s craft beer selections or our full-service bar.”
Take note that perusing the menu choices and making a selection can be tricky because everything just sounds so incredibly tasty!
Skallywag’s New Menu:
Start your food experience with a “Down N’ Dirty” appetizer such as the Porky Pig Egg Rolls (ground pork, carrot, cabbage with General Tso dipping “sawse”); the Mac Daddy’s (fried bacon macaroni and cheese balls with queso and chipotle mayo drizzle); or the McNasty Nachos (pulled pork gyro chili, cheese, cilantro, onion, minced jalapeños, and chili ranch.)
Now that your taste buds are aroused, it’s time to place an order for a mouth-watering burger, a satisfying “sammich,” or tacos!
Skallywag’s burger options include the aforementioned Wyatt Earp (buffalo meat, bacon marmalade, caramelized onion, smoked blue cheese, minced jalapeños on a pretzel bun); the Moose Knuckle (ground elk seared in duck fat, curry stout mustard, Gruyere cheese, pickled onion, on toasted brioche); or the Jo Mama (buffalo meat, pork belly, peanut butter, bacon marmalade, pickled onions, and minced jalapeños, on a slow dough pretzel bun).
The “sammiches” selections tempt with items such as The Woody Woodpecker (blackened chicken with bacon, avocado and tomato on a pretzel bun); the Moby Dick (fresh yellow fin steak, blackened and topped with summer slaw and dill aioli on a pretzel bun with lemon); and the Mother Klucker (battered chicken with pickles, American cheese, buffalo sauce, and honey on an old-skool bun.)
Tacos are for any day of the week. Especially when you opt for the Asian Pork Belly Tacos (braised pork belly, sweet pepper herb slaw, sesame vinaigrette on corn tortillas); the Sunrise Taco (egg whites, cheese, bacon on flour tortillas with side of pico); or the Fat Donkey (a burrito with chicken, black beans, avocado, cabbage, pico, cheese, and jalapeño ranch wrapped in a flour tortilla.)
