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 [...]

Bravery Chef Hall

I am obsessed with food halls (our fancy phrase for cafeterias) and downtown Houston is feeding my obsession by continuing to add new food halls!  Currently, we have Conservatory, Finn Hall, Understory and now Bravery Chef Hall.  I have been to them all and would recommend them all for different reasons.  Most recently, I stopped by Bravery Chef Hall a food hall located at the bottom of the Aris Market Square Apartments.   While the basic concept is similar, Bravery Chef Hall features restaurants curated by chefs making their offerings a step above others.  Check out my experience during a lunchtime [...]

Postino Wine Cafe

It took Postino Wine Cafe opening a second location in Montrose for me to finally visit.  Trust it was not for lack of trying.  Ever since Postino opened their first location in the Heights, I have been trying in live my best life on their patio!  Well since it has remained popular since opening, I could never snag a table.  So please know that I was SO excited when I received an event to the soft opening of the Montrose location!  I finally got to see the hype about Postino Wine Cafe.  Check out my experience below! The Setup At [...]

Happy Hour at Mia Bella Trattoria

Dropping in for a quick post about an amazing low-key happy hour that I recently discovered!  I visited Mia Bella Trattoria with my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends last week and we were all pretty impressed with the happy hour offerings!  It left many of us wondering HOW did we not know this existed?!

Cultivated F+B in the Lancaster Hotel

When I rattle of Houston facts to a non-believer I generally mention that Houston boasts the second largest theater district in terms of seats.  I say this so proudly while privately I have to admit it is rare that I visit one of our beautiful theater district venues!  Well I guess I was due for another visit because late last fall a blogger friend dropped an event in our group chat that I could NOT miss.  Y'all, Boyz II Men scheduled a performance with the Houston Symphony at Jones Hall.  My R&B loving self would rollout to see Boyz II [...]

Omni Houston Hotel

About two weeks before Hurricane Harvey I toured the Omni Houston Hotel with the Houston Food Blogger Collective.  We loved our tour and I actually wrote my review while holed up during the storm.  I never shared the post though because I soon learned that the Omni Houston took on several feet of water and would be closed for renovations.  Over a year later and $30 million in renovations, the Omni Houston is back open with a whole new look. Just last weekend, our group went back for a tour and I gotta say I love the new Omni Houston [...]
