Punk’s Simple Southern Food

I appreciate brunch, and the many different types of brunch spots that are available here in Houston.  You need goto places for the days that you are feeling fancy and want to dress the part.  You also have to keep a list of places where sweats, no makeup and hair in a bun will not be a faux pas.   A few weeks back, after spending the night turning off weather alerts for an impending flood, my friend and I were in dire need of one of those simple laid back brunch spots.  We decided on Punk's Simple Southern Food.  As a [...]

Quick Post: Tout Suite

As a writer/blogger I make note of cute coffee shops that are great work spaces for the days that I just want to get out of the house. Tout Suite was next up on my list of places to try.  I stopped by during the brunch/lunch hour on a Saturday for a snack and a little writing time.  I pulled up the location via Apple Maps, but it sent me to a Jail/Bail Bondsman a few blocks up on Commerce. I thought it was an odd location for a coffee shop, but I confidently hopped out of my car as [...]

Rustic Oak Gastro Pub and Wine

I have failed you all and not stayed true to the name of this blog! I checked my "Brunch" category and realized I had not added a brunch post in months.  I rectified that problem this past weekend with a trip to Rustic Oak Gastro Pub and Wine with my foodie group friends.  Rustic Oak is a quaint restaurant which serves a brunch buffet on Saturdays and Sundays.  It is located right off of Richmond and 59, in Montrose.  We stopped by for a Sunday brunch and overall had a great time. The Setup: This place is situated in a house and I [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch AND Blog

Whew last weekend was exhausting! Sam Smith concert, an 80s vs 90s party and then brunch with fellow bloggers! This was all before noon on Saturday.  If my schedule was not crazy enough, a flat tire meant I had to roll up to brunch in Uptown Park sporting my donut tire.  Despite the weekend craziness, it was great to gather with a group of fellow bloggers to enjoy a delicious brunch and excellent conversation. Renia, the creator of Gristle and Gossip suggested that several black food bloggers meet for brunch during the Houston Restaurant Weeks month.  Renia picked the french [...]

Celebratory Brunch!

I met up with a group of high school friends to celebrate a few things.  First, my good friend got engaged in Europe a few weeks ago and this was our first chance to see her in person to congratulate her.  Second my other good friend just completed her degree.  We are so very proud of her and it deserved a good brunch to celebrate.  Then finally, as you can imagine, I surround myself with fellow foodies so we were also celebrating the first Sunday of Houston restaurant weeks :) This year there are not too many brunch options on the [...]

Save your money and clear your schedule! It's that time of the year again, Houston Restaurant Weeks!!!!!

Foodie Travels: Breakfasts in Chicago!

My view of downtown Chicago, from Lake Michigan! Chicago marked the end of a long travel binge! Praise god because I am TIRED! I went to Chicago for my friend's 30th birthday bash. Chicago is definitely a foodie town so I was excited to try some new places during this trip.  Their foodie history is best represented by the Taste of Chicago event.  The taste was going on while I was in town and shockingly I decided not to go.  So many of my Chicagoan friends have said "it's not the same" so we saved our money and time! I [...]

Foodie Travels: Kansas City

At least once a year I make the trip to Kansas City, my birthplace and where most of my family still lives (Houston is still home though!)  I was only in town for a few days for the fourth of July but I was eager to try out a new restaurant for brunch while there.   I planned to meet some college friends who live there and wanted somewhere that was unique to Kansas City.  I asked my twitter followers if Kansas City had any "cute brunch" places and one of my friend offered up Char Bar.  It definitely met my expectations! [...]

Birthday Brunch!

To celebrate my birthday, I invited several friends out to a Saturday brunch at Union Kitchen.  As you can imagine, the girls in my life also love a good brunch, so it seemed like the appropriate choice. Of course I had a great time with my girls! Not quite 30, yet but this still seems fitting HAHAHA! The Setup:  Urban Kitchen has several locations in Houston. This location is on Bellaire in a crowded shopping center.  It's right next to Dr. Nowzaradan office. He's the doctor on TLC's show My 600 pound life.  I actually say a film [...]

Foodie Travels: Brunch and Lunch in Boston

After indulging in so much sugar during our cupcake tour we asked the hotel concierge for light lunch suggestions.  The concierge suggested Stephanie's on Newbury Street which was thankfully walking distance.  I love a walkable city, my hometown unfortunately is not. We made the scenic walk to Stephanie's with me stopping for pictures at every block.  We went for a table on the large patio allowing me to continue taking in the city and to people watch.  I did not get a chance to venture inside so I cannot speak for the set up in the restaurant. One of the [...]
