Let's talk Puerto Rican - for a change

kagemusha49 | Apr 12, 2011 09:43 PM

I get tired of all these posts about (your choice) Burgers, BBQ, Tex-Mex, Steakhouses:- categories in none of which Houston particularly shines. Let's hear it for a few neglected specialties like Puerto Rican as in Tex Chick - a little hole in the wall run by an ancient guy and his wife in what looks to be their former living room. Absolutely wonderful Mfongo or if you prefer fishy stuff bacalao followed up by a nice custardy dessert and all washed down with Malta. I'm talking about unique dining experiences. Why oh why do we see the same old lame posts about indifferent burgers oe whatever when there are a few excellent Indian/Paki places like Indika or Sabri Nihari or Korean places like the Telephone Thai or other wonders like Brennans. All the dross on this board is drowning out the good stuff and making Houston look bad. For some intrastate rivalry, check out the postings for Dallas.
