Dak & Bop

So guys finally made it to Dak & Bop for some Korean fried chicken!  Forgive me if you perceive this as ignorant, but when I think of fried chicken, I think of scenes like the Help where Minnie shows Ceila Foote the beauty of mounds of white crisco grease.  A great American tradition that is often stereotypically attributed to African Americans.  Right or wrong, that is where my mind goes when I hear fried chicken.  I have taken ownership of this American food as something quintessentially a part of the African American cuisine. Consider me a little possessive over it [...]

Brunch At Lucille’s

  For Father's Day my family and I enjoyed brunch at Lucille's in the Medical District.  I have written about Lucille's before, so I will be brief, but anytime I enjoy a great brunch I feel obligated to share! Since my father is a vegan, picking restaurants that meet his diet can be tricky.   A few months back we had a great lunch at Lucille's primarily because my dad was able to order about ten different things off the menu, all of which were amazing.  It seemed fitting that we take him back there to celebrate him on his [...]

Hey friends! I am back at it again with a dinner review of Hotel Derek's Revolve Kitchen + Bar.  I had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant for the Houston Food Blogger Collective monthly dinner.  Here are my thoughts: Location and Setup: Hotel Derek is one of Houston's premiere boutique hotels located in the heart of the Galleria.  The front restaurant has had many lives as the hotel has tried to determine what fit best for their guests!  The current version is Revolve Kitchen + Bar which focuses on high end food in a relaxed setting.  The name Revolve comes [...]

Down House Brunch

Alert the masses, this is a new brunch post!!!  When I started this blog I naively thought people would know this blog was not just dedicated to brunch, BUT I realize now, that new brunch spots are what my readers expect, so I shall oblige!  A few weeks back I headed to Down House in the Heights for a Saturday brunch with my sister.  Down House has been on every best of list you can think of and thus ended up on my "places to try list."  Once I heard that Joe Biden swung by there while in town a [...]

Miyako Happy Hour

It feels like I haven't posted a new restaurant on my blog in forever! The problem is, I have been sticking to the places that I know and love, so few new spots.  Then I have gone the way of other food bloggers and microblog more of my adventures on Instagram and Snapchat (shameless plug, follow me there if you do not already!) Anywho one Friday, I was in search of a new Happy Hour to visit with my Foodie group.  I asked my Houston Food Blogger Collective crew and they all gave me great suggestions, many of which I [...]
