Keep Houston Press Free

Donut Patrol: Boudin Kolaches

Spicy pork filling on the inside, moist sweet dough bun on the outside -- a boudin kolache and a hot cup of coffee is as good as a Houston breakfast gets. We first learned about boudin kolaches last week from the reader who calls him or herself Sepatown. They are available at the Shipley's at North Main, and only on the weekend. (I brought my own Katz's Bayou Blend coffee in a car thermos.)

The combination of Cajun boudin and Czech kolaches staggers the imagination. I imagine the Genesis story must start with something like: So Boudreaux and Katarina got married and opened a bakery. If, by chance, you know of someplace else that sells boudin kolaches (or any other interesting fusion kolaches), please let us know so we can check them out.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
