With input from Chowhound, we grazed through the Houston area this past weekend.
Tampico Seafood & Cocina Mexicana 2115 Airline Dr
Grilled snapper with shrimp and crab legs was amazing. Best meal for the price we may have ever had worth helping cab to find most people in Houston we talked to did not even know it exists thanks so much Chowhound
Original New Orleans Po-Boy 3902 Main St
Period atmosphere, very interesting pancakes and sausage unremarkable but very inexpensive
Goode & Co. 5109 Kirby Dr.
Great brisket and sauce plus pecan pie Eating outside on a nice day How can you go wrong
Churrascos River Oaks 2055 Westheimer
Plantain chips with (3) sauces, Churrasco steak served with chimichurri sauce (tender and tasty), and a very good Australian Shiraz made for a wonderful evening try the bread pudding, even better than the very good tres leches
Breakfast Klub 3711 Travis
I havent waited in line for 30 minutes for breakfast before the wings and waffles was certainly worth the wait there is a reason for the crowds - a real find
Mama Ninfa's 2704 Navigation Blvd
Quiet late afternoon lunch fajitas, enchiladas, margaritas, great service my definition of how Mexican food should be
Zulas 705 Main St.
Trendy décor with very good food and service plus only one block from Magnolia Hotel Lobster and Eggs Benedict was a new variation of a classic that I loved Atlantic salmon Shepherds Pie for dessert (Belgian chocolate with caramel) plus another good bread pudding
We enjoyed the Fine Arts Museum, The Livestock Show, and a drive out to The Forbidden Gardens, but we were not impressed with downtown Houston, but due to the assistance from Chowhound members, we had a great getaway weekend, dining does not get much better than this.
