World-renowned chef and co-owner of the ever-popular Hoggs-n-Chicks and Live Oak Grill (with friend/partner Roque Baecker), Frédéric Perrier has partnered with longtime friend Tao La to bring The Slanted Frog to Fort Bend County!
Chef Perrier says, “Tao and his family own Kim Són and NAM Noodles and More. I’ve known the family for more than 20 years. I enjoy their food. I love Vietnamese and Asian food in general. My kids and I have been eating Dim Sum at Kim Són every Sunday for many, many years. Because I’m French, the La family call me a ‘frog.’ Because I love Vietnamese food and I’m very good with chopsticks…Tao and his brothers nicknamed me ‘slanted frog.’”
Always wanting to open something together, Chef Perrier and Tao went for it when a space opened up on Plantation Drive. The new concept is southern comfort meets Asian comfort, and Tao’s nickname for Chef seemed the perfect moniker for the restaurant: The Slanted Frog! Chef Perrier says, “This isn’t fusion. It’s my southern comfort food with a touch of French (think truffle mac and cheese, cornbread with queso, honey and bacon) on the menu next to Vietnamese and Asian dishes like pho and ramen with some fun tweaks too. We also offer your favorite traditional comfort foods, including chicken fried steak, buttermilk chicken tenders, General Tso’s chicken and fried rice. We want a family of four to come in and feel at ease…comfortable. With this concept we have the leeway to truly have something for everyone. In my own family, the kids and I love Asian…but my wife, she wants the truffled mac! Here everyone can order their favorites!”
With a large patio, The Slanted Frog is planning live bands and even some outdoor cooking on the grill and smoker in the near future. Chef Perrier is also planning a funky and inexpensive wine list. Private events, catering and carry-out are all available.
Bring your entire family and enjoy the comforts of The Slanted Frog. You will be glad you did!
