Pinkerton’s Texas Pit Barbecue

I feel obligated to start with this whenever I write a blog post about Texas Barbecue.  I am originally from Kansas City, Missouri therefore I see KC Barbecue as the pinnacle of good barbecue #dontdebateme.  As such, I am typically iffy about trying out barbecue spots here in Texas despite all of the hype and praise.   Well a few months back, I had a sample of Pinkerton's at the Houston Chronicle Culinary Stars event.  It was a small brisket slider on a jalapeño bun, but it won me over enough to at least stop by.  So I did just that...

Fielding’s Rooster

This location is now closed.  Please visit the other Fielding's Locations in the Woodlands area!    It should be no surprise to anyone reading this that I will travel for a good brunch.   A few weekends ago I hit up Fielding's Rooster way out in the Woodlands with members of Zipkick Houston.  It was a bit of a drive, but within minutes of the tasting I decided it was totally worth it!  While I was there for a brunch, we got to try a variety of items on the menu! Peep the details below for all of the fun. The [...]

Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill

Bronx's own Jamaican restaurant Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill made its way to Houston opening TWO locations in the last few weeks! They hosted a grand opening with much fanfare a few weekends ago.  I was feeling a bit anti-social so I skipped the big party and decided to swing by on a quiet Saturday to try out Golden Krust!  In short, I enjoyed it but keep reading for the full experience ! The Setup I visited the Westheimer location which is in a busy shopping center near a Home Depot and Pet's Mart.  I expect it do well [...]

For the Kulture

Earlier this week, I visited Kulture with a group of food blogger friends.  Kulture is a new restaurant in the convention center part of downtown, owned and operated by Marcus Davis, the owner of the Breakfast Klub.  Now, the Breakfast Klub is truly a Houston institution, so I was eager to visit this new concept! In short, as the name implies, this restaurant is the epitome of "For the Kulture!" The Location/Setup Kulture took up residence in the Avendia Houston building which connects to the new Marriot Marquis Houston.  With a prime location, Kulture will certainly pull the after work [...]

Dinner at Mastro’s

Low-key Houston Wine Bars

Cues that monotonous "low-key" song from the Insecure soundtrack that I seem to love.  For a host of reasons many of us are drawn to low-key spots.  Maybe it's a first date and you want less pressure.  Or maybe, it is a night out with girlfriends and low-key means no makeup or heels.  Another good reason, you want to chill in a dark corner by your lonesome!  Whatever reason draws you to a low-key wine bar, this list of Low-Key Houston Wine Bars is for you! Oporto Wine Cafe Their website describes Oporto as a "boutique" spot and I would call [...]

Sunday Funday at Moxie’s Grill and Bar

So I went to Moxie's this weekend because I am a follower.  Yes, I follow the crowd to new spots so I can report back all of the TEA to you all.  So Moxie's vibe reminds me of college!  Hear me out!  The year was 2008, I was a senior and college and really thought I was ALL the way grown.  *Cackles thinking about how wrong I was back then*  My "grown" self LOVED a spot called Houlihan's.  It seemed fancy compared to the Chili's in our small college town.  Part of the fancy came from the $20 entree price-point.  [...]

Best Houston Burger Spots

Last Friday I was leaving work and craving a burger.  As I debated, I realized there were WAY too many burger spots in Houston to pick from.  I touched on this a bit before in my Houston Foodie Guide, but figured that my favorite burgers deserved their own blog post.  Also, it seems that my readers LOVE lists, so I am working to create a few more.  So here it is folks, the Black Girls Who Brunch's list of Best Houston Burger Spots.  Before you bash me for skipping  a place, these are all places that I have personally tried.  It [...]
