The Halal Guys

To know me is to KNOW that I order Halal Guys via Uber Eats AT least once a month.  I have no shame!  Despite Halal Guys having several convenient locations around Houston, I still had not visited in person.  After being invited to stop by a location to see all that Halal Guys had to offer, I could not pass up a visit and of  course provide you all with the info!  Read along for all of my details on my visit to the Halal Guys! Location and Setup: I visited the first Houston location located on Farnham near 59 [...]

National Pasta Month at Brio Tuscan Grille!

When I first moved back to Houston about five years ago, Brio Tuscan Grille in City Centre was one of my go to spots. I cannot really say why it fell out of rotation, but after my most recent visit it is DEF back on the list.   October just so happens to be National Pasta Month.  To celebrate, Brio Tuscan Grille created a two course pre fixe menu featuring some great pasta dishes.  Yesterday, myself and a friend of mine had the pleasure of sampling the whole menu! So, I am here to give you all of the National Pasta [...]

Kula Revolving Sushi Bar

Part of my prep for Hurricane Harvey included squeezing in one last food tasting!  If you know you are going to be in the house for up to four days with blah food, you jump at the chance to try something new!  On this occasion, I had the pleasure of stopping by Kula Revolving Sushi Bar.  The international restaurant chain just opened a new location right here in Houston on Westheimer and Wilcrest!  The major draw for Kula Revolving Sushi Bar? There is literally a revolving bar with all your sushi favorites!  Keep reading for more info on this cool [...]

Bernie’s Burger Bus Heights

Can you guys believe this last month was my first visit to Bernie's Burger Bus?!  I always hear Bernie's mentioned as one of the best local burger spots in town I just had not made my way to one of their locations yet. Luckily, their team invited me out for a tasting at their brand new location in the Heights!  The cool thing about Bernie's? It literally started out as a food truck run out of an old bus, hence the name.  Some of their original spots to park the bus were in the Heights.  Bernie's is now full circle [...]

Week 1: Houston Restaurant Weeks!

August is the month where food bloggers like myself run around like crazy people trying to eat at ALL the good restaurants during Houston Restaurant Weeks for the low.  Add in that a portion of my meal purchase goes to charity?  Yeah I'm in there like swimwear.   For those who do not know, each August Houston's premiere restaurants participate in Houston Restaurants Weeks.  They offer two to three course meals during brunch, lunch, or dinner for $20-45 bucks!  It is the BEST time to try that restaurant that may set you back a few coins. So I being the [...]

The Caddy Shack

I am back with another review of a Houston spot!   Before heading to New Orleans for Essence Fest, a group of my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends and I headed to the Caddy Shack on Washington to enjoy a media tasting of their menu items.  Here are the highlights! Setup and Location You have probably passed the Caddy Shack before and may not have noticed it.  The Caddy Shack is located right in the thick of things on Washington across from B&B Butchers.  It's a smaller non assuming building, with the name Caddy Shack emblazoned on the front of the [...]

Remember when I dropped that list of Houston Birthday dinner spots?

Seaside Poke

Poke, (pronounced po-kay) is all the rage and I for one am all about a food trend!  For the most part, high end restaurants have held the market on the poke trend which means it can be a budget buster.  Well to my budget conscious foodies, a new option poke bowl option, Seaside Poke just opened in EADO.  Check out my experience below! The Setup and Location Located in EADO next door to Chapman and Kirby, Seaside Poke is getting in game early.  In a matter of months that whole area will be filled with more restaurants, bars and businesses. Part [...]

Velvet Taco

Back with a taco post ahead of Taco Tuesday so you can prepare accordingly! Velvet Taco has been on my "need to try" list for a long time, but I tend to circle back to places I like such as Torchy's rather than trying something new.   A couple of Fridays ago I was not in the mood to fight the Rice Village traffic, so that meant giving Velvet Taco a try.  I grabbed a co-worker and we headed out for our first trip to the popular taco spot, Velvet Taco! The Setup/Location Taco Heaven! Velvet Taco is [...]

Dinner at Kitchen 713

Whew! Let's get back to the business of restaurant reviews shall we? While I worked on my event, I still tried some new places that I want to share with you!  Last week, I revisited Kitchen 713 for a tasting of their new menu items including dinner items and cocktails!  Now, I do not typically post on a restaurant several times, but considering that Kitchen 713 is in a new location and my last post was about brunch, I figured this deserved some attention.  For all of the details about setup and location check out my last post.  To get a [...]
