I'm thinking about coming to Baylor for medical school, and will be in town visiting on Wednesday and Thursday. Food is extremely important to me, and one reason I like Houston because it has such a huge, diverse population with (hopefully) the accompanying diversity of great restaurants!
Any suggestions about great ethnic places around Houston? I'm willing to drive, but ideally they would be places or parts of town that I would be able to go to on a regular basis while I'm in school. I'm not that familiar with the geographic layout of Houston. Things that would be great to find include
- Japanese (sushi + others)
- Chinese noodles & dumplings (+ other Chinese)
- Mexican (Tex-mex... how is it different)?
- Vietnamese (Mai?)
- Houston specialties (great oysters, seafood from the gulf?)
Thanks in advance!
