Punk’s Simple Southern Food

I appreciate brunch, and the many different types of brunch spots that are available here in Houston.  You need goto places for the days that you are feeling fancy and want to dress the part.  You also have to keep a list of places where sweats, no makeup and hair in a bun will not be a faux pas.   A few weeks back, after spending the night turning off weather alerts for an impending flood, my friend and I were in dire need of one of those simple laid back brunch spots.  We decided on Punk's Simple Southern Food.  As a [...]

Rustic Oak Gastro Pub and Wine

*This location is now closed :(.  Check out my brunch file for other options* I have failed you all and not stayed true to the name of this blog! If you check my "Brunch" category you may have noticed that I had not added a brunch post in months.  I rectified that problem this past weekend with a trip to Rustic Oak Gastro Pub and Wine with my foodie group friends.  Rustic Oak is a quaint restaurant which serves a brunch buffet on Saturdays and Sundays.  It is located right off of Richmond and 59, in Montrose.  We stopped by for a Sunday [...]

Birthday Brunch!

To celebrate my birthday, I invited several friends out to a Saturday brunch at Union Kitchen.  As you can imagine, the girls in my life also love a good brunch, so it seemed like the appropriate choice. Of course I had a great time with my girls! Not quite 30, yet but this still seems fitting HAHAHA! The Setup:  Urban Kitchen has several locations in Houston.

Dish Society Brunch

As you may have already gathered, I like brunch! So when a few of my former co-workers suggested we get together for a much needed reunion, brunch was my suggestion.  We settled on Dish Society in the Galleria area (there is also a Katy location), because I kept seeing it popping up on Best of Houston lists so I figured it was worth I try. Drinks Unfortunately, I did not partake in the mimosas this go around, but by glancing at the menu it seems like they offer more variety than your typical champagne and orange juice.  They even had [...]

Top Houston Brunch Spots

*For my most recent list of my favorite Houston Brunch spots click here* It bears repeating that I just love eating out, that includes, breakfast, brunch, lunch, happy hour dinner, dessert. But brunch, it holds a special place in my food loving heart. A good brunch has the right element of haughtiness to quell the inner bougey black girl who resides in all of us. It’s a menu that includes breakfast and lunch items, so no matter what you are feeling it’s got you covered. It goes till about 2 or 3pm so even though you just rolled out of [...]
