Best Comfort Food: BCK Kitchen & Cocktail Adventures

Do you consider SpaghettiOs® comfort food? We certainly do. You’ll find the childhood throwback in adult form at this truly outrageous, totally soulful kitchen. Here, it’s known as “Pasghettios” and is made with anelletti ring-shaped pasta and little hunks of 44 Farms hot dog. Also up for grabs are elbow mac and cheese with a hefty Cheez-It cracker crust, Shake'N Bake-coated pork chops with buttery mash, and pho-inspired Vietnamese pot pie, because in a melting pot like Houston, that is most definitely considered comfort food.
