Handies Douzo is an intimate sushi spot that is great for dates. They focus on the exquisite hand roll; basically, it’s a sushi roll wrapped in nori, but uncut, so you get to dive into the entirety of a sushi roll. And it is so good and so difficult to not just scarf down the entire roll.
Tucked right off a bustling street in Montrose is the lively Postino Wine Bar, located in an immediately-noticeable building (it was built back in the 40s, and has been home to some famed places!) Postino is a highly recommended place for something casual, fun, exciting and filled with good foods, boards and drinks.
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.
Italy has gifted the world with flatbreads, risotto, cheese and even more. One place, in my opinion, that embodies this breadth and depth of delicious food is Prego in Rice Village.
Traveler's Table is tucked inside a gorgeous building, surrounded by beautiful greenery and glass windows that allow for just the right amount of light to filter in, shining onto the dining room. A globally-inspired eatery, Traveler's Table prides itself in serving modern versions of global cuisine, adding their unique and identifiable twists to these staples around the world, without ever straying to far from the original dishes they pay homage to.
As a non-Houstonian, this breadth and depth of Chinese cuisine was intimidating at first. From Peking Duck to specialty noodle dishes, there’s just so much Chinese food that we didn’t know where to start! But after a few months of gradually exploring Houston, we’ve found a place that truly stands out from the pack. And that place is Hu’s Cooking!
From late night papers to morning pick-me-ups, the classic cold brew stood there to make sure I was not only awake but also focused and alert. In short, you could say cold brew has been my strongest supporter (sorry Annie!). So it’s noteworthy for me to say that I have crowned arguably the best cold brew in my new home of Houston, Texas -- Anonymous Cafe!
