Im a not snobby Brooklyn Chow Hound- - adventurous palate, with the limitation of liking my food pretty clean - love heat and spice- and Im a pescatarian sp?- fishead. I can eat my way around any menu BUT
I am going to Houston for Christmas ( every year ) to see my inlaws and we never eat good food unless we cook at home. I know its there, I just need help finding it. Downtown - to Sugarland to the Montgomery area is our usual stomp .
I know there is better salmon than Texas land and Cattle-
better catfish than the Cracker Barrel-
there has got to be a mexican that isnt everything cooked with lard-
and I have had enough good Pho in Houston- to know that there has to be an Amazing one out there.
Oh and real long shot but is there such a thing as a Japanese joint in Houston?
could be sushi- a souen -soba joint , anything
You can start to see where we usually end up- I know that if I could turn my inlaws onto something new ... theyd have new customers- and Id feel like way less pain in the behind
( when i asked if i could get my spaghetti cooked al dente the entire table looked at me like i was speaking pure yankee)
All suggestions appreciated from the bottom of my growling stomache.
