10 Houston Restaurants to Visit in September 2021

Last month I did a "restaurant dump" for August and you all seemed to like it!  I love when a new idea aligns with my audience.  So I am back for the month of September with a new list of restaurants to try.  Remember, this is just a quick way to share restaurants that I visited recently, may have posted on Instagram, but did not get a chance to do a full dedicated blog post.  Here we go, 10 Houston Restaurants to Visit in September 2021 Bayou & Bottle Before the world shut down, Bayou & Bottle was one of [...]

KP Kitchen

When you move to a new area in Houston, one of the first things you should do is find a good neighborhood restaurant.  Preferably locally owned with locally sourced food.  You know the kind where the owner is always present wandering about greeting guests and helping staff.  KP Kitchen is just that for those in the Memorial/City Centre area.  Owner Kerry Paul, aka KP, cut his teeth at Houston favorites like Benjy's, the Classic and Local Foods.  His experience at these great restaurants shines through in the setup of his restaurant, the elegant classic feel and of course the food! I [...]

Roots Wine Bar

So listen, most of my blog posts are the result of one good visit to a new or new to me spot in Houston.  When the world is open, it is rare that I circle back to places because there is always something shiny and new that I want to check out next.  Welp, I visited Roots Wine Bar about a week ago and loved it so much that I was back with another group of friends by that weekend.  This here post is the culmination of two good visits to Roots Wine Bar and the conclusion you should take [...]

The Original Hot Dog Factory Houston

If you are an avid watcher of Real Housewives of Atlanta like me you are very familiar with the Original Hot Dog Factory!  When Porsha introduced her boo, Dennis McKinley on RHOA some years ago, they also introduced us to his restaurant, the Original Hot Dog Factory.   The brand recently began franchising across the country with a new location arriving right here in Houston.  The franchise owners happen to be two Houstonian sisters.   I stopped by a few weeks back with my own sister to try out the Original Hot Dog Factory Houston.  Check out the details below! The Setup [...]

Kamp Houston

Despite the oddities that are 2020, restaurants are still opening albeit with less fanfare than years past.   The folks behind Prospect Park, Lost and Found and countless other bars/clubs frequented by Houston's black crowd have opened yet another bar in Houston.  This time, they have taken over the space vacated by Beaver's late last year to create Houston's newest bar experience, Kamp Houston. The Setup The clientele between Beavers and Kamp likely doesn't have much crossover so I am probably one of the few people who had the privilege of visiting both spots.  Both locations played up the outdoor theme [...]

The Classic Houston

I've been a fan of Benjy's and Local Foods since forever.  When the owners of these restaurants converted the Benjy's on Washington in to a new concept, The Classic Houston, I assumed I would like it as well.  The Classic has been around for awhile, butI finally got a chance to try it this week for lunch at work.  Here are my thoughts! The Location and Setup Can I get the decorator for this restaurant group to come decorate my house? Per usual the space is beautiful! Combining retro items that fit the diner concept with newer items works well [...]

Bellagreen Winter Menu

*Checks calendar* February is almost over which means we are officially two months in to 2020! Many of us started 2020 with new years resolutions or affirmations for the year.  I am sure those included being healthier, working out more etc.   I am no different, but also know I have to be realistic with myself.  Ya girl likes to eat out!  I've obviously built a whole brand around this.  As such, I try to find dining options that are good, fairly priced and do not load on the calories.  Bonus points if they deliver!  Well, a few weeks back I [...]

ChopnBlok

What a nice segue from my last post about getting invited to blogger events!  A few weeks ago, I attended a pop up event at Flora Culture for ChopnBlok.   I had the privilege of being a friend's plus one (one of my tips) AND Houston Insider partnered to host the event (a second tip).   Honestly, I did not care HOW I got in the building.  I was just glad to be present for the ChopnBlok experience! The Event ChopnBlok hosts dining experiences which aim to expose the Houston community to Western African cuisine and culture.  With "fusion" being the hottest [...]

Lost & Found

Welcome to 2020! Instead of doing some fake deep post for the start of the year, I figured I would jump right in to what brings most of y'all to my website.  My reviews of Houston's best food establishments.  Most importantly, you all seemed excited about this spot based on my Instagram post so I thought it would best to do a full review.  Here you have it folks, my review of Lost & Found Houston's latest Midtown Bar. The Setup Lost & Found is a new bar located in Houston's Midtown AKA Fourth Ward.  The concept is brought to [...]

Davis St. at Hermann Park Featuring Chef Holley

A few years ago, Houston lost two great black owned restaurants Holley's and Davis Street at Hermann Park.  As I have traveled this year, I am learning that Houston is lucky in that not only do we have a plethora of black owned restaurants, but they also run the gamut in terms of restaurant type.   For example, we have high-end celebratory kind of restaurants that are also black owned.  Holley's and Davis Street fell in that "when you feeling fancy" category of a restaurant so I was sad to see them go! Well this year, in 2019, the owners behind [...]
