Lunch at District 7!

A few weeks ago I stopped over at District 7 for a workday lunch with members of my office.  District 7 has several locations. This time we went to District 7 in EADO.  Yes people, Houston is picking up the New York naming of neighborhoods. EADO=East Downtown.   This was my first time at this location, but I have been to the diner in midtown. Setup: The EADO location is cute  It is not as charming as the midtown location, which is styled like an old school diner. It is open late so it is super convenient for breakfast after [...]

Back at B&B Butchers!

I made it back to B&B Butcher's before Houston Restaurant Week ended as promised.  Frankly, B&B Butchers is a budget buster (say that three times fast), SO I needed the budget friendly Restaurants Week menu to indulge once again.  This time, my sister, mother and I went on a Sunday for lunch.  I will just touch on what was different about this experience.  For my full review, check out my last post. Service On my last visit, I was treated to a tasting menu with the Houston Food Bloggers Collective.  The service was impeccable, but they of course knew that [...]

Truluck’s Happy Hour

Random aside to start this post off with, I first remember hearing the term "Happy Hour" as a kid watching the movie Casper starring Christina Ricci.  The "bad" ghosts chanted Happy Hour! Happy Hour! Happy Hour! before dragging the father off to his demise. So whenever I write a post about Happpppy Hourrrr! I say it in my head like the ghosts did . Hahahaha.  Anywho, last week I caught up with one of my Mizzou friends who was in town for some wedding planning. We met up on Friday for Happy Hour at Trulucks!  Trulucks is in the galleria area near some [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch AND Blog

Whew last weekend was exhausting! Sam Smith concert, an 80s vs 90s party and then brunch with fellow bloggers! This was all before noon on Saturday.  If my schedule was not crazy enough, a flat tire meant I had to roll up to brunch in Uptown Park sporting my donut tire.  Despite the weekend craziness, it was great to gather with a group of fellow bloggers to enjoy a delicious brunch and excellent conversation. Renia, the creator of Gristle and Gossip suggested that several black food bloggers meet for brunch during the Houston Restaurant Weeks month.  Renia picked the french [...]

Del Frisco’s Goodbye Dinner

It's Thursday so I might as well post a fuzzy throwback of Morgan and I! Back when I had braids and pretended to be natural at a natural hair event with this natural hair maven ha!  I could always count on her to do random unique things in Houston! I will selfishly miss my friend, but I am SO happy for her new opportunities back at home :) My dear friend Morgan left me to go back to her hometown yesterday :(.  It was only fitting for us to end it how it all began, with food.  We [...]

Mod Pizza: A Review

I do not believe in eating in on Friday nights so I stopped over to Mod Pizza this past weekend for a quick no fuss dinner.  This place is best described as the Chipotle of Pizza Shops.  When you walk in, there is a menu of the favorites, but you are welcome to make your own pizza with all the ingredients present ( so many options!).  I went for the Dillion James which includes asiago, basil, garlic, tomatoes (I went without), red sauce and added sausage for no extra cost.  You walk through the Chipotle styled assembly line and pick your ingredients if [...]

Sweet Temptations

I may or may not have a sweet tooth that is occasionally out of control however, this list is pretty strong evidence that I do. Tiff Treats This is an Austin, Texas implant with a few locations in Houston. Do not make the mistake of thinking that these are JUST cookies and you can buy them at Kroger's or make them yourself, because you cannot!! One dollar for a simple treat, loves it! Me thinking about Tiff Treats during a long day at work.  Dessert Gallery Dessert Gallery is a gallery of trouble for me! They have a variety of [...]

Top Houston Brunch Spots

*For my most recent list of my favorite Houston Brunch spots click here* It bears repeating that I just love eating out, that includes, breakfast, brunch, lunch, happy hour dinner, dessert. But brunch, it holds a special place in my food loving heart. A good brunch has the right element of haughtiness to quell the inner bougey black girl who resides in all of us. It’s a menu that includes breakfast and lunch items, so no matter what you are feeling it’s got you covered. It goes till about 2 or 3pm so even though you just rolled out of [...]

Second Time’s A Charm

In August 2013, my foodie group began at a locally black owned restaurant named Lucille’s for a birthday dinner for one of my co-workers. Leading up to our dinner, we had been tickled over a harsh review in the Houston Chronicle, where the owner took to the comments section to defend his baby. Despite the forewarnings, we made the trek to the Museum District to partake in Lucille’s Restaurant Weeks menu. The few things that were good, were GOOD and what was bad was BAD. The bad things have a way of outweighing the good things and we ultimately walked [...]
