Loro 🥟

If you are in the mood for Asian flavors on your big night, Loro is the way to go. This Asian smokehouse and bar was created by two James Beard Award winners, so you know it’s good. Their food combines the soul, technique, and flavors of Southeast Asia and Japan with the traditional smoke flavors of Texas.

We recommend starting with the wonton chips and dip, featuring Thai green salsa and peanut sambal. As for meat, we love the smoked beef brisket or char siew pork belly. Their veggie options are all delicious. Be sure to finish with a classic chocolate chip cookie, made better with salted toffee and almonds.
