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 [...]

Houston Press Tacolandia

Houston Press is hosting their first Tacolandia at Buffalo Bayou Park on October 24th.  An entire event dedicated to tacos?? It's like the people at Houston Press read my mind.  I love a good taco, but I have really been interested in the fun unique things that chefs are doing with a taco!  We have moved well beyond meat, salsa and cheese folks.  This event will showcase all the best Houston has to offer in the taco "food group."  For the cost of admission, you will be able to sample as many tacos as your stomach can endure.   Houston [...]

Taco Tuesday!

Living in Houston, Texas means you will be inundated with Tex-Mex restaurants.  It's kind of our niche thing here.  If you have ask any Houston Foodie their favorite Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurant, be prepared for a long list of options.  I am no different!  One day, I will make a list of my favorites, but for today I am just featuring one that I frequent often, Torchy's Tacos!!! Torchy's started in Austin, Texas as a food truck and was so successful they were able to open a brick and mortar store. They eventually expanded to Houston and have grown rapidly here. [...]

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 [...]
