Houston is rightfully known for amazing Tex-Mex and barbecue, but there’s more to the restaurant scene than that.
If your sightseeing has you running low on energy, Empire Café serves one of the best cups of coffee in town. You can also get a delicious breakfast any time of the day there.
If all you want is some old fashioned, handmade, artery-clogging goodness, go to Hubcap Grill. The burgers served there have been called Houston’s best.
Houston also has a great international food scene. For a casual gourmet meal, eat at Dolce Vita. The fresh pizzas they serve are far from run-of-the-mill.
But if you want a fancier meal, Da Marco serves fine Italian cuisine in an elegant setting.
Kata Robata is the place to go for sushi and other Japanese dishes. Only the best ingredients are used to create each innovative dish.
For Vietnamese food, Mai’s Restaurant offers an extensive menu of delicious, authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
There’s also plenty of drinking to be done in Houston. At La Carafe, you can sip good wine and listen to great music, without doing much damage to your wallet. But Texas is better known for beer than wine, and you’ll find plenty of great places for that as well. At the Saint Arnold Brewery, you can even take a tour to see how your beer is made before you drink it.
Houston is a great place to eat and drink, no matter you like!
