A new cafe opening in Plano brings together two of Texas’ top cuisines: BBQ and tacos. Termed Burnt BBQ & Tacos, it will open up at 2929 Custer Rd. #302D, in the identical little buying centre at Parker Street which is home to Scotty P’s Hamburger and Mama’s Pizza.

&#13
Set to open up on January 15, Burnt is a classic pandemic pivot, established by a team better known for seafood which includes Brett Curtis, creator of The Dock foodstuff truck and founder of Dock Nearby, the seafood strategy with places in Uptown Dallas and Plano’s Legacy Hall.

&#13
On Burnt, he is partnered with Dock chef Tim Halls, who has a longtime enthusiasm for barbecue and will serve as pitmaster.

&#13
“With the pandemic, Dock Nearby was executing food kits, and the No. 1 seller was barbecue,” Curtis says. “I’ve been a seafood person all my lifetime. We ended up undertaking meal kits featuring pasta, prime rib, lobster, but the barbecue was a sellout every time. When we discovered this place in Plano, we reported, ‘Let’s go in advance and do this.'”

&#13
The cafe is compact with seating for 25, but they foresee being mainly to-go, specifically even though COVID-19 lingers.

&#13
Both Curtis and Halls went to culinary faculty and that chef savvy can be spotted in some of the choices on their not-so-ordinary menu:

  • &#13
    Their smoked brisket is Primary high-quality and crusted in coffee grounds
  • &#13
    Their pulled pork is infused with garlic
  • &#13
    Their ribs are baby-again with a BBQ citrus marinade
  • &#13
    Their sausage recipe contains roasted poblano in the ingredients

&#13
They also have the option of finding the meats rolled into a taco, topped with chef-model sauces these types of as avocado crema and ancho mole. 1 exclusive giving is their Navajo taco, served on the stylish puffy Navajo bread, as a great deal a flatbread as it is a taco.

&#13
The Navajo bread will make a second showing in a dessert tpped with blackberry Wojapi sauce, from a Native American recipe you will find also peach cobbler.

&#13
They do a brisket-laden queso and a smoked baked potato which you can purchase plain or loaded with meat. Sides involve jalapeno citrus slaw, twice-baked potato salad, Burnt pinto beans, and hand-slice fries.

&#13
“We figured, you never get tacos and barbecue in a person site, and that is something that makes us special,” Curtis claims.
