Scratch-made Biscuits w/ Crème Fraiche Where to get it: Blacksmith, 1018 Westheimer
Though this Montrose café's coffees and teas are on point, the scratch-made biscuits alone are reason enough to visit. Crisp on the outside and incredibly flaky in the middle, the rustic biscuits are over the top buttery without being greasy. Simply spread the warm biscuits with cool crème fraîche and sweet marmalade, but if you're looking for a bigger meal, the housemade sausage, cheddar, and an oozing egg number is equally fantastic.
Funky Pot Pie Where to get it: Funky Chicken, 181 Heights
An already decadent chicken pot pie is made all the better with chunks of tender, buttery biscuit dough popping throughout. More like a chicken stew than a contained pie, the chicken and veggie loaded gravy that smothers the dough gets topped with another golden-brown, big-ass biscuit for good measure. Get the comforting meal for $8.49.
Crawdads Biscuit Where to get it: Punk's Simple Southern Food, 5212 Morningside
This Southern-style kitchen ups the ante on old-fashioned biscuits and gravy by smothering its impossibly buttery and beautifully fluffy buttermilk biscuit in a creamy, rich crawdad-loaded etouffee. Get the absolutely smothered treat for $6.
