I'll be in Houston for three days, August 11-13, delivering my daughter to Freshman orientation week at Rice. We'll be staying at the Holiday Inn Medical Center. I love international groceries, and am hoping to get to Fiesta Mart. Is there anything to recommend one over the other -- it seems we'll be closest to the Kirby St. one (near the Target we'll be going to for dorm sup[plies) or the one near the Menil Collection. Will I find European things there as well as Hispanic and Asian?
Also, if "vegetarian" isn't a dirty word in Texas, could anyone recommend a vegetarian-friendly restaurant, preferably in the Rice/Kirby/Medical Center area?
