Review of Piada Italian Street Food

A few years back my ancestry.com DNA test surprisingly revealed that among my strong African ancestry, I had a smidgen of Italian ancestry. I am admittedly ridiculous, BUT I took that small percentage and determined that it accounted for my love of Italian food.  Other than spaghetti, I pretty much fall in love with any dish that purports to be Italian cuisine.  Which leads me to my new discovery, Piada: Italian Street Food! I have eyed this place since the "coming soon" sign popped up at the Memorial Shopping Center.  Founded in Ohio, Piada recently opened their first Texas location right [...]

National Cheeseburger Day: The SHACK

The Shack is a burger joint out in Cypress, Texas, not to be confused with Shake Shack, another burger place that is near and dear to my heart.  One of my favorite foodie websites listed the Shack as a top patio restaurant in Houston.  This drew my attention because A) it is not in the loop like all of the other places on the list B) while I live closer to heart of Houston, I grew up in Cypress but had never heard of this place and C) how was this place prospering in the land of franchise restaurants?  My [...]

Houston Restaurant Weeks Wrap Up: III Forks

Several weeks back I went to III Forks on the last weekend of Houston Restaurant Weeks.  If you recall from my first Houston Restaurants Weeks post, this was one of my favorite places from 2014's Houston Restaurant Weeks. Great service, great portion sizes and great food.  My foodie group and I decided to ring in one members' birthday month with a trip to III Forks. Setup: III Forks is in the Houston Pavilions in downtown Houston.  Downtown Houston is not ideal for any restaurant in my opinion.  This city's downtown goes to sleep after five pm on weekdays and for most [...]

Foodie Problems

I will be the first to admit, most of these are first world problems! But as I was thinking about the life of a foodie, I could not help but think it is not all glamour and free dinners.  Here are the "problems" I came up with and I thought I would share, ha! Pondering about world problems. 1)I try to keep it positive for the most part on my blog.  The idea is that you can come here for places I recommend, not places I hate. (Check out my Zomato account for the whole gamut!)  Now while I [...]

Lunch at District 7!

A few weeks ago I stopped over at District 7 for a workday lunch with members of my office.  District 7 has several locations. This time we went to District 7 in EADO.  Yes people, Houston is picking up the New York naming of neighborhoods. EADO=East Downtown.   This was my first time at this location, but I have been to the diner in midtown. Setup: The EADO location is cute  It is not as charming as the midtown location, which is styled like an old school diner. It is open late so it is super convenient for breakfast after [...]

B&B Butchers Review

I have been blogging steadily here for about a month and I must say, the best thing I have done so far is join the Houston Food Bloggers Collective (HFBC)! It's a great way to network with other bloggers and for interested parties to find you/your blog.  On Tuesday, I attended my first HFBC event, a menu tasting at the new Houston steakhouse B&B Butchers. I brought my sister along as my plus one and we took a TON of pictures, so this post will be filled with pictures :).  Here is my experience: Setup: B&B Butchers is housed in a converted [...]

June Foodie Group: Gloria’s Latin Cuisine

For this month's foodie group/birthday celebration for one of my friends, we went to Gloria's Latin Cuisine Restaurant.  Let me start by saying that Tex-Mex is huge in Houston. There are variations of Mexican restaurants and Tex-Mex restaurants literally on every corner here.  With so many options, everyone I know calls a different Tex-Mex/Mexican restaurant their favorite.  Due to so many options, it is hard for a restaurant to stand out to me in this cuisine area.  Many of my friend's call Gloria's their favorite and on my first two visits I really did not understand why.  I reluctantly went [...]
