Jeff, Joy, and I are trying to experience as much of Houston as we can! As we taste great food, visit cool places, and explore new areas, we will continue to update this list. We hope you check back here often!
we ordered almost one of everything. Make sure you try the tender brisket, and their sweet and smoky ribs. Don’t forget the creamed corn, mac and cheese, and greens like your grandma make! Added bonus: if you aren’t in the mood for BBQ get a burger! one of the best we have ever had! <ask them about it>
Everyone was singing the praises of Breakfast Klub. We got lucky and didn’t have to wait in line for more that 15 minutes. Get there before the church rush around 8:30. We were greeted by somebody’s vivacious grandmother and our food was brought out as soon as we took a seat. They suggest you try the chicken wings+ waffle, and the catfish and grits. We agree…
Children’s Museum of Houston
I was super excited to bring Joy to the Children’s museum. It’s definitely a gem of the city. There is something for all ages! There is an interactive play gym on the upper level for kids 3 and under, a city simulation downstairs for the older kids complete with ATM machines, restaurants, voting booths, and a grocery store. The kids get the opportunity to spend and save money, act as cashiers, and servers. We spent an entire hour on the top level enjoying all the sensory elements available for the babies; Joy didn’t want to leave. To top it all off, there was an outdoor area with a wet exploration set up. Kids can splash their hands in the water, play with levies, and tons of other things!
If you’re headed to the Museum District, stop by Barnaby’s for breakfast or lunch. It was a very solid classic breakfast with delicious coffee, hand squeezed juice, fluffy eggs, huge pancakes, and well seasoned breakfast potatoes. You really can’t go wrong.
If you would prefer your coffee over ice, pop over to Bosta Wine & Coffee The staff was really patient and the drink was delicious. Must comeback for a glass of wine one day!
Fajita’s a Go Go
This became one of our first go to spots. We have been back at least 4 times since we moved here and it’s everything I love. It’s not your traditional Tex-Mex. First of all, they are set up for carryout service. There are may be three tables inside. This is perfect for us because if you know anything about eating out with littles, it can be trying at times. We call in our order, wait in the car and pick up an easy, delicious dinner. They have perfectly cooked steak fajitas, savory veggies, rotisserie chicken to die for, shrimp skewers and even a vegetarian option. They boast three different types of beans and a white queso that could put most traditional tex-mex retaurants to shame. Best part is I enjoy it all from the comfort of my home!
We were fortunate enough to experience a private tasting with the chef Chris Williams and it was all DELICIOUS. If you are looking for some seriously tasty fried chicken, a cozy and nostalgic atmosphere, and want to experience a Houston hidden gem, make sure to check them out. The restaurant pays homage to his great- grandmother and the pride and love echoes through each and every dish.
