Pinkerton’s Texas Pit Barbecue

I feel obligated to start with this whenever I write a blog post about Texas Barbecue.  I am originally from Kansas City, Missouri therefore I see KC Barbecue as the pinnacle of good barbecue #dontdebateme.  As such, I am typically iffy about trying out barbecue spots here in Texas despite all of the hype and praise.   Well a few months back, I had a sample of Pinkerton's at the Houston Chronicle Culinary Stars event.  It was a small brisket slider on a jalapeño bun, but it won me over enough to at least stop by.  So I did just that...

Ramen Tatsu Ya

We are all friends here so I can be honest with you.   For the longest time, if you mentioned "ramen" to me my mind instantly went back to that sodium filled childhood favorite.   It was the only thing my parents let me "cook" when they were not home!  Well with age, I learned that the real ramen, a Japanese favorite is NOTHING like that junk I ate as a kid!  This week, I had the pleasure of trying out the real deal at Ramen Tatsu-ya!  Catch all of the fun below. The Setup and Location Ramen Tatsu Ya, is located [...]

Pei Wei $5 Lunch Menu

Last week, I stopped over at Pei Wei with a group of blogger friends to sample their new $5 lunch menu.  Let me start with this, I am not a huge fan of Chinese food.  That's not to say that I do not like it, it's just that when I am craving a certain cuisine, Asian food is rarely one of them.  So I went to Pei Wei, the Chinese fast casual, for this lunch with moderate expectations.  Trust me when I say, I was blown away!  The Pei Wei $5 Lunch Menu, packs quality in with value and flavor!
