It's so tough getting that feeling of a home-cooked meal after a long day of work. The pains of getting the ingredients and being creative enough to visualize a recipe can be just as exhausting as your work life. So you opt for the same boring meal. Those days are long gone because you can get a mouth-watering deal every Monday night at the Houston based hot spot The Hay Merchant where they serve up a delicious menu of farm to table dinner plates for only $15.
And believe me, these TV-dinner-inspired plates are amazing on every level.
Hopefully, you checked the menu before you came because they mix it up each and every week. It may look strange eating a plate of craft food off of a cafeteria plate, but it's a tradition that has people coming from all over Houston to see what it's all about.
For example, this week they served up some chicken parmesan, and next week will be something completely different.
Just make sure you don't wait too late in the evening because they start serving at 5 pm and when it's gone, it's gone. It's football season now so on Monday's the games will be on, but in the off-seasons, they play throwback TV shows on their projectors.
Sometimes you just have to treat yourself to a well-balanced meal. And what better place than a super fun bar where you can kick back with your old favorites and get some food that will actually make your mother proud.
And when it's time for your next cheat meal, feel free to indulge at this awesome Houston foodie fest.
