In this edition of Erika and Daniela (my co-worker) do a weekday lunch, we stopped over at Paul's Kitchen (PK) in the Upper Kirby area! Location/Setup:  You have probably noticed that Upper Kirby is one of my go to lunch areas and honestly a go to dinner area as well.  Developers packed so many great restaurants in such a small area that speak to my inner foodie! If you frequent this area, you may not have seen Paul's Kitchen because it is kind of hidden.  It's on a side street off of Kirby behind the Elevation Burger and Taco Cabana. [...]

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 [...]

Lunch at Kata Robata

Lunch at Tiny’s No. 5

Oh how I appreciate my co-worker and her commitment to new content for my blog.  Her and I brownbag it for lunch Monday through Thursday and come Friday when we have grown sick of Lean Cuisines, she drops by my office and asks  "Where are we eating?"  I in turn scour my list of places to try, shoot her over some options and then she reviews the menu for items that fit her gluten free diet and then we are off! This past Friday, Tiny's No. 5, the second location of Tiny Boxwood's was our pick. Setup: First off, can [...]
