Houston Chinatown ̵...

Ahhhhh. Chinatown, Houston. A place I love to go for good food and relaxation. It’s where I spoil myself, and the best part is that it doesn’t hit the ol’ wallet too hard. I typically begin visiting one of the many asian restaurants. A few of my favorites are Banana...

Searching for the Holy ...

Being from just outside of the Crescent City, I am admittedly biased to many things NOLA (that’s affectionate shorthand for New Orleans, Louisiana, of course). The people are special, and the community is close-knit. The party never ends (pace yourself). The costumes are...

Pluckers is Finally Her...

I have been a Plucker’s fan since before their decent into Houston. If I am passing through a town that has a Plucker’s, a special stop is scheduled (mainly San Marcos and Austin for me). To keep this short, because there is not much justification needed, Plucker’s is...

Kata Robata is My Fave

I’ve been wanting to write about Kata Robata ever since they opened their doors, but I guess I have just been too damn lazy. Maybe. I’ve been there countless times and I guess I just always had an internal fear that whatever I write would not do the justice deserved of this...

Buc-ee’s Breakfas...

Oh man. I have to come out with a secret, something my wife doesn’t even know about. I have a problem, and I have it bad. Every morning I pass our neighborhood Buc-ee’s on the way to work.  Yes, I live that far out of town. And like a purple pimp on a dark street corner,...

Zesty Low Fat Egg Muffi...

I love eggs. I could probably eat eggs at every meal, omelette, hard boiled, soft boiled, sunny-side up, scrambled…you name it – but now I have a new egg addiction – egg muffins. Did I mention super simple? All you do is whisk your eggs and add salt and pepper. Chop any...

Ice Cream Thanksgiving ...

This was huge fun, but isn’t just weird looking? And its not turkey flavored ice cream (which some questioned). Baskin Robbins brought much joy to my office today by delivering dreams of holiday feasts in the form of ice cream. Upon delivery, the break room was immediately filled...

Fleming’s Steakho...

I was damn happy when Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse invited me and Stef to their fall menu preview event.  Not only because I knew I was in for an exceptional evening, but because I have been wanting to say a few things about Fleming’s for years. You see, I used to work right...

Chicken Ramen at Kubo&#...

So Stef and I had the honor of attending a sneak peek Ramen tasting.  As members of Houston’s Ramen in Common club, our good friend, Carl Rosa, graciously invited us to partake in this exclusive event. Carl is also the founder of the largest sushi club in the United States (and...

Healthy Ice Cream ̵...

Now, I’m calling this ice cream – but both days I had it last week it was for breakfast. So I guess you could also call this a smoothie – which ever you want. But hey, who doesn’t want to eat ice cream for breakfast?! Whichever you fancy I had frozen and fresh...

Hurricane Grill and Win...

If you know me, or read some of my previous posts, I have a weakness for wings. However, wings have to be done just right and I have long been disappointed in what Houston has to offer in wings. What makes a good wing? This is my wing criteria: The wings must be large All natural (free...

Are Chopsticks Better T...

We typically use chopsticks at our local asian restaurants. However, I am beginning to notice that even Chinese restaurants are only supplying chopsticks by request. I want this trend to reverse and we use chopsticks for everything, beyond asian food. I think all restaurants should...
