Jerry Built Burgers

Yes, this is another review of a burger spot in Houston, but you are going to like it!  Houston has a lot of burger spots and will soon add national favorites, Hopdoddy and Shake Shack.  I am slowly eating my way through all of the local favorites and only blogging about the ones I really liked.  Trust, all of the places I eat do not make it on the blog or my social media accounts.  I am still sticking with the "only positive experiences make it to the blog" rule! Anywho, last week I had the pleasure of attending a Houston [...]

Bistecca Houston

Lunch seems to be the only time I am getting out in these Houston streets and trying new restaurants! Here I am again with another edition of my Friday work lunch.   This particular week, as soon as  I walked into work, both of my co-workers peppered me with "Where are we eating Erika???"  questions.  Ohhhh the pressure!! I checked a few national food blogs and happened upon Bistecca Houston Italian Steakhouse, a new restaurant in the Montrose area! The reviews were good so we figured we would take the chance! Setup: I have passed Bistecca a couple of times since [...]

The Kitchen at the Dunlavy

Houston spring is upon us!! The fact that by February we are back to sunny skies and 70 degree weather is why I will never trade in my hometown for a fancier model.  When the sun is shining I need to be out in the streets doing something and that generally includes eating.  On a Friday earlier this month, my co-worker and I stopped by the Kitchen at the Dunlavy for a quick lunch at this beautiful venue. Location/Setup: The Kitchen at the Dunlavy is part of the new Buffalo Bayou park along Allen Parkway.  The area includes [...]

Killen’s Barbecue and Tailgating

I have proclaimed my love of Kansas City barbecue on this very venue a many a times.  I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge that the place that I currently reside is also known for being home of the best barbecue in the country as well (I only acknowledge Texas, Memphis and KC for this accolade!).  When I mention that I have a food blog there are certain places that people always ask if I have visited, Killen's in Pearland usually tops the list.  When I say that I have not been, there is initial shock and then [...]

Helen’s Greek Food and Wine

After seeing several bloggers and foodie websites tout Helen's Greek Food and Wine as one of Houston's best new restaurants I knew that it needed to be added to the top of my "must try" list.  I ventured over with my lunch buddy/co-worker on a beautiful Friday afternoon.  Side note, I know it's January but can every day be 70 degrees already?? My spirit is ready for maxi dress and patio season! Inside Helen's Location/Setup: Helen's is right on the main drag of Rice Village, Rice Boulevard.  On a beautiful unseasonably warm day, parking is hard to come [...]

Paul’s Kitchen

In this edition of Erika and Daniela (my co-worker) do a weekday lunch, we stopped over at Paul's Kitchen (PK) in the Upper Kirby area! Location/Setup:  You have probably noticed that Upper Kirby is one of my go to lunch areas and honestly a go to dinner area as well.  Developers packed so many great restaurants in such a small area that speak to my inner foodie! If you frequent this area, you may not have seen Paul's Kitchen because it is kind of hidden.  It's on a side street off of Kirby behind the Elevation Burger and Taco Cabana. [...]

Lunch at Local Foods

Before everyone left for the holidays, my co-worker and I stopped over at Local Foods in Rice Village for our standard Friday out of the office lunch !  As the name implies, Local Foods showcases local ingredients on their menu and I love to support locally owned places! I love these types of signs! I need one in my house! Location/Setup: Local Foods has two Houston location, one in Upper Kirby and the other in Rice Village next to their sister restaurant Benjys.  This visit was my first stop to the Rice Village location, which is a bit [...]

Pico’s Restaurant

In this edition of Black Girls Who Brunch take on the Houston Chronicle’s top 100 list, my co-worker and I took our Friday lunch trip to Pico's Restaurant in Upper Kirby.  Pico's is a Mexican restaurant that attempts to recognize the different cuisines from the seven regions of Mexico. The Setup: Pico's is right in the mix off of Kirby and Richmond making it an easy trip for most inner loopers.  Pardon my ignorance regarding Mexican architecture, but places like Pico's always put in my the mind of the Alamo.  Inside of the restaurant sticks with that theme with some [...]

Lunch at Kata Robata

A few weeks back my co-worker and I stopped over at Kata Robata for a Friday lunch out of the office.  Some fellow food bloggers have described Kata Robata's lunch specials as some of the best deals in town and I am all about cheap good food! Additionally, Kata Robata just so happens to be on the Houston Chronicle's "best of Houston" list so all signs pointed to this being a great lunch choice. The dining room The Setup: Kata Robata is right in the thick of Upper Kirby.  There is a parking lot for the shopping center [...]
