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 [...]

Cafe Azur

I traveled to "France" for lunch recently and I am back just in time to share my experience with you! By France, I mean Cafe Azur, Houston's latest and greatest French restaurant.  Since opening last fall, Cafe Azur has been delighting Montrose visitors with their beautiful patio, brunch and dinner menus.  Here recently, they expanded their offerings to include lunch.  I took a break from my real paying job for a nice lunch with fellow bloggers where we experienced the French Riviera! Setup I visited Cafe Azur last fall soon after they open and loved it.  Time got away from me and [...]

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 [...]

March Madness at Russo’s Pizzeria!

It is officially MARCH MADNESS!!!  I have a fun deal from Russo's Pizzeria to share with you, but first lets talk sports! Did you make a bracket? Did your team make it to the big dance??  Can I just say, I LOVE March Madness.  During my college and law school years my school (Mizzou) was often a contender for the big tournament.  For me, there is not a college championship series more fun that basketball!  I was generally an avid watcher until a couple of  years ago when my school lost in the first round to a lower seed.  IT [...]

Grub Burger Bar Lighter Fare

Last week I stopped over to Grub Burger Bar for a tasting of some of their lighter fare! I have been to Grub Burger Bar many times before and somehow managed to never add it to my blog until now.  Do not take this slight as an indication that I do not like this spot, cause I do, so I was glad when they invited me out to for a tasting.  So this time, I am making sure that share ALL the fun details with you all. Location/Setup Grub Burger Bar is located in the heart of City Centre in [...]

Healthy Options at Hopdoddy!

The start of the new year means #NewYearNewMe for a lot of folks.  For us foodies, common new year's resolutions are vows to cook more, eat out less and of course eat healthier.  With those pledges our favorite food spots get dumped at the start of the year and we only come back once our resolutions are forgotten.  Keeping this in mind, the good folks over at Hopdoddy invited me to come back out and try the other side of their menu, the healthy side! Menu! The Details I have been to Hopdoddy before and blogged about it [...]
