3204 Polk St.


Recommended Posts

I haven't been by this building in a long time, but Google streetview shows it to be vacant. Looks like this might become a bakery that doubles as a storefront for a coffee roaster?
 

New electrical permit for a Mango Pickle LLC kitchen remodel:

LLC search shows Eadough Pastries as an alternate name:

That leads to http://eadough.com

And also found http://www.instagram.com/itscakegirl

And Google Maps shows Blackwater Coffee Roasters at the location:

Hah, Eadough pastries. Alright, you got me in for one visit at least.

That said, I found this bit of showboating a bit interesting: "Having spent years in a 2 Star Michelin rated kitchen in New York, Kripa has a caliber of experience not found in the Houston food scene." I think Daniel Bludorn, the entire staff of Le Jardinier, the chef at Nobie's, and others would like to have a word with her.

(Also, I don't think Michelin bragging gets you too far in Houston)

My eyes rolled so far back in my head they lapped themselves

hm. Mango Pickle, Bumpy Pickle, I know they're going to be different concepts, but we might be approaching peak pickle.

"Mango pickle is a traditional Indian condiment made with raw mangoes, spices and oil. In India, pickles are relished as a side in every meal." For those wondering about the name lol. Context clues:

I was driving by last night and saw that the lights were on so I tried to slow roll and take a few pictures, but there were like 8 workers standing in this doorway all staring at me so I chickened out. 

Also, were the product pages up on eadough.com before? There are a bunch of listings for baked goods now. Rosemary and potato kolache sounds interesting.

Fancy, creative pastries are great and all, but man I wish there were a bakery in the area that had great loaves of actual bread. Everything on EaDough's website looks pretty similar to what's available at Koffeteria (and everywhere Koffeteria distributes - Segundo Lab, etc).

Does Tout Suite have bread offerings?

take a look in any one of the various panaderia (bakery) around the area. 

coffee pairs well with pastries (sweet, or savory), so that's what these places sell.

yeah, baguettes and sourdough are probably not a specialty of the panaderia.

I wonder if any of the bahn mi shops in midtown would just sell the baguette bread?

One does, and I can't put my finger on it. I definitely saw it on the menu of one recently and it was like $2ish.

I would also suspect that the profit margin on a pastry is higher than bread, so they might be hesitant. 

With Common Bond continue to explode, I wonder if one will pop up in the East End eventually.

I could see Common Bond fitting in with East River very well. Similar vibe to some of the already announced tenants.

good to know, if that's the price it's worth my time to drive out to Beechnut and BW8 and hit up VietHoa for some baguettes. if I remember correctly from when I lived in the area, it's a lot less expensive than that.

I think some of those bakeries out there have (had?) them for $0.25 a pop.
