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 [...]

Birthday Dinner at Yauatcha

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 [...]

Houston Birthday Dinner Spots

As a food blogger, there are two questions I get the most 1) where would you recommend that I brunch? and 2) It's my birthday! I need a nice dinner spot. HELP!  Well, I think I have sufficiently answered question number one with countless brunch lists and reviews (Check here for that).  For the second one, I guess my dinner section did not give folks clear options, so here comes the list!  June just so happens to be my birthday month so it is only fitting that I roll out a list of Houston Birthday Dinner spots to host your birthday [...]

Dinner at La Table

Last weekend I met up with my foodie crew for a last minute dinner on a Friday night.  So here is how the planning went. At about noon we realized that we were ALL free that evening and since that never happens we scrambled to find a spot suitable for dinner. I of course advocated for some new spots which turned out to be the "hottest seats in town." We headed to Opentable and searched based on availability (#foodietip).  From there we landed on La Table, the galleria reincarnation that has been around for a few years.  Dinner at La Table [...]

KURIOS at Peli Peli

I entered the food blogger scene about two years ago and during that time I have attended tons of events hosted by South African restaurant Peli Peli.  From popups, tv show premieres to tastings at Peli Peli Kitchen and Peli Deli.  Somehow I managed to never stop by Peli Peli in the Galleria mall despite even having gift cards to use for a visit!  Well, I finally joined the in crowd and visited Peli Peli last week to preview their Cirque Du Soleil, KURIOS at Peli Peli Menu! The Setup Peli Peli is growing faster than I can keep up.  The [...]

NOLA Poboys

A few weekends back myself and some blogger friends were treated to a tasting at NOLA Poboys!  While Houston isn't New Orleans we have a our fare share of restaurants claiming to do New Orleans staples well.  Just about any Houstonian will name off their favorite of those restaurants and tell you what they do well.  With that in mind, I was eager to see what NOLA Poboys had to offer especially after I learned that this spot was New Orleans implant. Setup and Location The owner shared with us the plans for expansion throughout the Houston suburbs, but for [...]

Cirque Du Soleil and Ruggles Black

Cirque Du Soleil has made their triumphant return to Houston with their new show, KURIOS- Cabinet of Curiosities!  It sounds mysterious enough to pique my interest.  As always though there is a food plug here!  Local paleo restaurant, Ruggles Black decided to join the fun and create a menu based on KURIOS! I along with a group of my favorite bloggers previewed the special menu last weekend.  Keep reading for my review and more information about Cirque Du Soleil's stay in Houston.
