Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • JANUARY 14, 2000 OUT ON THE BAYOU 23 Eating Out RESTAURANT REVIEWS Generous but jumbled platters byKATHREEN I II TEALA'S provides an interesting study in juxtaposition. Take, for example, the mingled roots of Teala's cuisine. While on a trip to the Yucatan, Teal Anomaiprasert, who also owns Thai Pepper, discovered that despite the different hemispheres, Thailand and Mexico have much in common when it comes to food. Abundant seafood, fresh hot peppers, zesty lime and cilantro, and a hint of a wood burning grill flavor, are all culinary traits shared of both countries. One example Teala's oilers is a special southeast Asian version of the traditional mole sauce—an exclusive house peanut mole sauce. But despite claims of a fused cuisine, outside of its particular mole same, Teala's offers nothing distinctive from the usual platos Mexicanos. My dining companion and I started with the Chicken Fajita and Jack Cheese Quesadilla ($8.50). The cheese and chicken grilled in fajita sauce provided a spicy punch to the dish and blended well with the heaps of extra guacamole from the Guacamole Salad ($3.75). The quesadillas were not arranged in the usual tan-like manner for easy access. Instead thev were stacked on one another, seeming more like a jumbled bundle of chicken and tortilla. Nevertheless, the generous portions left us feeling like we had finished the entice, no. jusl the appetizer. My companion also ordered the Black Bean Soup ($3.95), which she found to be rather ordinary and too salty. For the main course, 1 ordered the half pound platter of chicken fajitas ($10.95), which is served with the usual tare of onions, guacamole, rice, frijoles Teala's Mexican Restaurant and Bar 4319 Montrose Blvd. 713-524-6922 Food:&&&> Service: C^ Cr,&>'t: Value: Cr'S^S5 Scene: S^S> &> & Opt for bread, water at home OK, if you really must Fine for most Worth the drive, so live a little As good as it gets charros and pico de gallo. Overall, the dish was predictable. The same was true of the Vegetarian Enchiladas ($8.95), served with spinach, soy bean strips, jack cheese and enchilada My dining companion described the dish as "pedestrian," complaining that the soy bean strips tasted more like dehydrated space food. Though the entrees don't inspire any hint of distinctiveness, the raspberry cheesecake dessert ($3.95) ended the meal on a positive note. The cheesecake had a lighter, grittier texture than most, and it didn't leave cakes of cream cheese plastered to my palate. The thick graham cracker crust had a homemade freshness that made it exceptional. The distinguishing feature of Teala's is not its cuisine, but its decor. When you first enter the restaurant, there's an overwhelming sensation of having stepped into a western saloon. With a large wooden chandelier, a staircase leading to a balcony over the bar and a hitching post separating the bar from the dining area, you could stage an old-fashioned Western shootout in the place. Again, in the decor, Teala's juxtaposes one style with another. For example, paintings ranging from a grainy portrait of a Mariachi band to Picasso-esque modern prints adorn the walls. Large paneled windows, which make up one side of the restaurant, face the parking lot and provide a ski lodge atmosphere quite disparate from a saloon. A large dilapidated sign surrounded by flashing bulbs and painted with the word "favourite" hangs over the bar, adding to Teala's diverse and kitschv decor. If you're looking for a new place to dine, or for a quiet patio to converse with friends over a mar- garita, then Teala's may be the place for you. Lale Xitflil Party? We deliver *(UI :»:»« A.M.
