Toca Madera Houston

It's so rare that I write blog posts.  Honestly it's also probably been years since I've dedicated a blog post to one restaurant, but this one is worth.  On June 18th, the fourth location of Toca Madera opened in Houston and I could not be more excited.  Originally started in Los Angeles, Toca Madera is a high end Mexican steakhouse known for their great food, cocktails, decor and entertainment.  Since opening their first location, they expanded to Scottsdale and Las Vegas.  Somehow, I have been to all of the locations and literally screamed when I heard that the next location [...]

10 Honeyland Fest Takeaways

Hi. It's me.  A Houstonian foodie here to give you the real about the inaugural Honeyland that went down in Sugar Land, Texas this weekend.  From the beginning, this event caught the attention of foodies like myself.  Promoters initially billed Honeyland as a food and wine festival with music acts, all of which would highlight Black culture.  They even pulled out Marcus Samuelsson for the initial promo calling him the curator of the food, which led me to believe this would be a legit event.  As more about the event came out, it was clear to me that this event [...]

Houston Restaurant Weeks Recommendations

Calling all Houston Foodies, restaurant weeks is upon us!  Houston Restaurant Weeks (HRW) starts on August 1st and goes through Labor Day Weekend  For those newer to the city, during the month of August, Houston restaurants feature unique menus for brunch, lunch and dinner ranging from $25-55.  These meals are generally two to three courses at some of Houston's best (and often most expensive) restaurants.   The best part?  A portion of the proceeds goes to the Houston Food Bank.   By 2022, HRW had raised $18.8 million dollars for the Houston Food Bank.  Each year people slide into my DMs asking [...]

Houston’s Best Group Dining Spots

What is group dining you ask? A birthday dinner.  Perhaps a baby shower.  A large group dinner just cause.  Heck even a wedding or reception is a possibility at some of these places.  If you want to dine with more than 10 people, have a private or semi-private room with a pre-fixe menu, these are some restaurants to consider with my list of Houston's Best Group Dining Spots. Rather than updating my previous list, it seemed easier to just make a new one.   There are a lot of places that still make the cut offering vibes, great food and accommodating [...]

Dining Solo in Houston

One of my followers dropped me a line on Instagram and asked me if I had a list of places that were great to eat alone.  I actually did not, but my general rule is one person has the question there are likely others that do as well.  Plus it seemed like a good question.  So I decided to get some answers from my BGWB Instagram followers plus add a few places of my own.  A few restaurants were suggested by several of my Houston followers so it seemed like a great list to share on my blog.   Here are [...]
