NYC-Texan hound on Houston trip

lovestoeat | Jun 24, 2004 05:11 AM

Hey! I'm a native Austinite visiting Houston from NY for the weekend.
What would you say are the must-gos for a fish eating vegetarian who hungers for authentically Texas, & is downright homesick for the real:
serious Mexican /or Tex-Mex
Vietnamese - I was reading that the Houston food is far superior to the Austin Vietnamese, and I imagine that both are better than what you can find in NYC.
Does anyone make fake-chicken fried steak? (I know that's a stretch, but one can always dream).
It helps if at least one is downtown or easily accessible from the airport by bus.
