I Love Visiting Houston

Dinner at Captain Benny's. Briny, cold oysters on the half shell to start our dinner. An amazing price at $5.99 for a dozen on ice. I ordered a whole fried catfish which was fried to perfection. The dinner order came with french fries, cole slaw and 2 hushpuppies. It was a great deal at $9.99 and there was more than half leftover to take to enjoy later on.

Dim sum at Golden Palace. We had an order of chow mein, bean curd rolls, siu mai, shrimp dumplings, fried meat dumplings, taro dumplings, char siu buns, sweet rice wrapped in lotus leaf, beef noodle rolls and spareribs. A satisfying meal with the highlights being the chow mein, the bean curd rolls and the sweet rice with chicken.

Dinner tonight was at Aloha Grill. I ordered the BBQ mix plate which included chicken teriyaki, teriyaki beef and korean short ribs, rice and aloha salad and papaya salad. While I thought the chicken was cooked past my liking, the teriyaki beef was tender. The standouts were the papaya salad and the korean short ribs. DH and the chow pup ordered the Aloha platters which offered a choice of two entree items from a fairly decent list of options. Both were happy with their dinners.

Happy so far with my visit in Houston.
