Instead of the Penne Matricana one would find in their menu, I asked for a substitution of angel hair pasta and the addition of veal, making it what I call "Veal Matricana". The deliciously rich sauce is basically a tomato basil sauce with added garlic, chili pepper flakes, (pancetta?), and lots and lots of thick bacon. Try it! You will be amazed.--Lorenzo

"It was fresh, perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection! Very tasty! This is the best seafood in the area!", Ron adds.Scooter Hawgs also has unofficial words from a City of Beaumont health inspector that would confirm Ron's findings. It appears after the July 2009 inspection that led to Floyd's Cajun Seafood in Beaumont receiving a failing grade of 64, the management in the kitchen, as well as the staff have received some major improvement. Welcome back, Floyd's!--Lorenzo

It's not often we visit an out-of-town restaurant(?), let alone a distant Thai restaurant (the only one around here is Chaba Thai Cuisine in Beaumont); but when the place comes highly recommended by our good friends Paul and Angela Hauser of DeRidder, La, we must cross the Sabine to check it out.
It was well worth the wait. The Tom Kah is fresh and spicy, filled with generous cuts of tender and juicy squid, sea scallop, fish and shrimp. The broth is rich, yet not overpowered by coconut milk and accented with unmistakable hints of fresh ginger and lemongrass. The simple, yet dramatic presentation, its portioning, even at half-order, gives you a sense of richness and wealth that will sure to make other guests jealous and their mouths water with regret.

I ordered three tacos, carne asada, carnitas, and pollo, with refried beans and Mexican rice topped with Pico de gallo, lettuce, corn and shredded cheese, and a side of salsa verde. The tortilla of my choice, maize, of course (although GEO does offer more choices of tortillas for burritos). The tacos were tasty, juicy, and satisfying. The carne asada was particularly well-marinated and flavorful.
GEO Burrito may not be hardcore- or adventurous-enough for some of you Anthony Bourdain-type out there; but this clean, airy and energetic establishment will be Latin-enough for most, and will no doubt make the short list of places to meet friends or enjoy a meal with family in Mid-County. For Beaumont folks who like GEO, there's also a Beaumont location at 4230 Calder St (the old Novrozky's).--Lorenzo
