Located in the middle of Houston Heights, A 2nd Cup is a coffee shop with a cause; that cause is justice. Specifically, they are Houston’s only nonprofit coffee shop that is fighting against human trafficking, for which Houston is one the largest cities for, unfortunately. With that alone, we more than endorse giving them a visit. It’s refreshing to find a place that cares about not only coffee but also the community at large.
This mystical establishment is Tiny's Milk and Cookies. Located in the heart of West University, Tiny’s is a neighborhood classic; kids, adults, and even our wisest elders enjoy Tiny’s, so you know this place is a definite must-try at least. And if WestU is a bit too far, they do have a new River Oaks location as well 👀.
Kata Robata! While it may seem like a mildly unassuming spot in Upper Kirby, it does pack a punch ✊. Kata Robata not only offers some excellent sushi, but they also have other phenomenal dishes if you wanna try something outside of sushi. Our recommendation is to have the best of both worlds 😉.
Shabu2 offers “Gourmet Shabu Shabu” “high-end cuts of meats to our freshly prepared vegetables and seafood; [they describe as] the quality you can taste in every bite!” And indeed, ‘tis true. Bites here have deeper flavor profiles and taste fresh.
Nestled north of the Texas Medical Center and by Midtown Park, Kanau Sushi is a contemporary Japanese restaurant that offers lots of intriguing and eccentric items.
Nestled in a nice spot in River Oaks, Armandos is “fashioned after 1920s’ Mexico City; it features classic Mexican fare with a nod to La Buenda Vida.” A style like that makes you know you’re living the good life whenever you dine at Armandos.
