Ruggles Black is a little hidden gem, located on Kirby and The Southwest Freeway. You literally have to go find it because, it is hidden behind some trees in the Twin Peaks and Taco Cabana parking lot. Ruggles Black was crafted by Chef Bruce Molzan (former chef at Ruggles Green and Corner Table) and Neera Patida(former owner of now closed, Nosh Bistro). The two partnered to bring to Houston a new restaurant mixing Asian, Indian and American flavors to introduce a brand new eating concept. The environment is simple, modern and hip and its aesthetic is topped with a friendly, courteous staff. After having one of the craziest work weeks, I felt I needed to treat myself- So I took myself out for lunch. You can get a more vivid idea of Ruggles Black by watching my Tastemade appisode here.
What I Ate:
I ordered the “Tandoori Chicken” also know as flat bread or pizza. Normally you would think eh, I can find pizza anywhere, but this one was unique. Topped with chicken, red onion, cilantro and their house-blended Tandoori spice to bring out a very unique taste. The serving was very generous, so I obviously took the rest to go(tasted 10x better the next day). Their menu also includes Paleo dishes, so I might try those next time.
