Urban Epicurious Top 10 Food Porn Moments

by Steven Doyle

Bev Garvin is a friend of craveDFW and also a local social media buff and photographer who maintains a pretty cool local site called Urban Epicurious. Today Bev joins us to celebrate her top 10 favorite food porn moments. We will run these over successive days so you may savor each bite.

If you haven’t ventured over to Smoke Restaurant next door to the Belmont Hotel on Fort Worth Avenue in Oak Cliff for brunch, you need to. Executive Chef, Tim Byers pulled out all the stops when he planned the brunch menu, and the Ricotta Cheese Pancakes are a perfect example of how he did just that. Each dish on the brunch menu is unique and, as such, these are no ordinary pancakes. They are not flat, thin, heavy or slathered in butter, and there is no maple syrup, nor will you even want it. No, what you will be served when you order this is nothing short of transcendental bliss.

These babies are made with ricotta, which makes for delightfully fluffy mile-high pancakes. In fact, just one is about the height of an entire pancake stack at most places. And they are topped with apricots that have been poached in vanilla, fresh blueberries and creme fraiche with just a kiss of powdered sugar on top. I’ve had the pleasure of eating these many times, and I often share them with others so we can have something savory too.
