CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Brisket kolaches quickly are become a local Family Favorite Food across the Coastal Bend.
And nobody quite makes them like Comanche Corner Cafe at 322 N. Staples in downtown Corpus Christi.
Comanche is a scratch kitchen cooking up some local classics as well as some family recipes. We checked them out today
as Comanche Corner Cafe owner Ricci Neer shows us her twist on the breakfast kolache.
Neer says she makes her kolaches with a Texas influence. The ingredients are simple - just dough, brisket and Colby Jack cheese. But the taste is anything but simple. The dough is buttered and seasoned and the brisket undergoes a slow smoking process that takes 11 to 12 hours to prepare.
Neer credits her mother for inspiring her to take her cooking to the next level. With a pandemic surging, she was able to turn her passion into a business.
"The kolaches I believe are an accommodation of inspiration over a lifetime with my mom and my grandmother and the cooking that they did," she said.
She knew her creations were good, but was surprised by how popular locally they have become. It's just one of many items on her menu that sells out daily.
