Just moved in and unpacked... I wish new towns came with a foodies guide, oh wait thats why I have chowhound!
Steer me in the right direction ch'ers! I am not picky, enjoy nicer "whole in the wall" joints to fine dining. Sushi, BBQ, steaks, American, tapas, French, real Italian (please no cheese and sauce drowned manicotti!), sandwich joints, seafood, microbrews and wine, Thai, bistro fare, and of course Mexican and Texmex!
Will try most anything, but for textural reasons I dislike mushrooms, my loss! Cheese is nearest and dearest to my heart, and I love good fresh produce, seafood, and meats to help me impress my hubbie when I cook at home (which is frequently!) He prefers grilling and mexican style cooking to knock my socks off!
So any restaruants you want to reccommend to me is appreciated. Close to medical center is fine, but we have no prob going downtown or anywhere that we can get to and back on 1 tank of gas, haha! Also would love to hear about farmers markets and any good butchers or fishmonger type places. Last but not least, which grocery do I go to? What exactly is the HEB?
