Texas pecan pie for room-service dessert? Yee-haw!

It seems the room-service debate will never go away. Some people call us suckers for succumbing to ordering it, others find it a life-saver in those wee hours when we’re feeling a bit peckish and don’t feel like going out on a food hunt.

But today we’re not debating whether it’s a good idea or not, we’re going to celebrate what we consider one of the most interesting in-room dining room menus we've encountered in a while, and since it’s near quitting time, it’s time for food porn, anyway.

This submission comes courtesy of The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. Instead of yawn-worthy, limp Caesar salads and uninspired burgers, this hotel is bringing the goods with a Lone Star State-twist. We’re talking chilaquiles with smoked short rib hash, mini-elk sausage corn dogs with Dr.Pepper barbecue sauce, “Sous Vide” beef tacos, and Texas pecan pie.

And there's more, so much finger-licking more, after the jump.

Short rib hash for breakfast, anyone?

The other great thing is just like our story on ordering room service from famous chefs, you can select items from Fearing’s, the hotel’s award-winning restaurant, that’s been ranked by the Zagat Survey as the top hotel restaurant in the United States. Favorites include Dean’s tortilla soup and barbecued shrimp tacos. For heartier fare, an apricot barbecue-glazed texas Lockhart quail and maple-black peppercorn-soaked buffalo tenderloin on Brazos Valley grits sure beats a boring cardboard-like pizza, or a tasteless tough-as-nails steak!

But if all this is too rich for your blood (snicker) they do offer the more simple Make Your Own Burger and Make Your Own Salad options, with a large selection of meats (from shrimp to beef tenderloin), cheeses, vegetables and lettuces. Pasta lovers can even customize their orders with choice meat, proteins, sauces, cheeses, and toppings, including kalamata olives, artichokes and grilled zucchini.

It sure sounds good—we just hope it taste good as well. There's nothing worse than a delicious menu that doesn't deliver. So, if anyone’s checking in to the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas soon and ordering room service, give us some feedback!
