Houston food

Here are some of the food places we dined at in Houston. Please note, I am not a foodie. I don’t necessarily go to food places because I saw it on a magazine or TV. A lot of times it’s serendipitous — but really I’m just hungry. Also since I went with friends, they helped me decide where to go.

Phat Eatery (23119 Colonial Pkwy Suite B-2, Katy, TX 77449)

Cuisine: Malaysian

The first place we ate when we arrived to Houston after a 2.5-hour drive from Austin. This restaurant was in a large strip mall, I decided Phat Eatery because my friends never had Malaysian food.

Top from left to right: Sizzling Tofu (my favorite!), Roti Canai, Beef Rendang. Bottom: Sizzling Tofu, Mi Goreng, and I am guessing the vegetable side is water spinach (?)

Sunny Flea Market (8705 Airline Dr, Houston, TX 77037)

Cuisine: Mexican

A large outdoor market where they sell clothes and other trinkets. We went for food. We ate more than what was pictured below.

Left: Caldo de siete mares (Soup of the Seven Seas). Right:  Chicharon taco

Tao Rice Roll (9889 Bellaire Blvd E207, Houston, TX 77036)

Cuisine: Taiwanese

Before leaving for Austin, we detoured to Chinatown Houston for a Taiwanese breakfast. I’ve never had Taiwanese breakfast. I enjoyed dropping the fried breadstick in the salted soy milk. I need to seek out a Taiwanese breakfast in LA.

Left (from top to bottom): Salted Soy Milk, Fried Breadstick, Purple Rice Roll, and Sweet Soy Milk.

Right: Egg crepe

San Dong Noodle and Dumpling (9938 Bellaire Blvd, Houston, TX 77036)

Beef Noodle Soup

The Pit Room (1201 Richmond Ave., Houston, TX 77006)

Cuisine: American

I’ll be honest with you. I am not a fan of any BBQ, but when in Texas, you try BBQ.

Anvil Bar and Refuge (1424 Westheimer Rd Ste B Houston, TX 77006)

They have a large menu of cocktails. When was the last time I went to a bar (haha)?

Pina Colada

Not pictured: My first drink, the Pisco Punch

Black Hole Coffee House (4504 Graustark St Houston, TX 77006)

Surprisingly we did not go coffee and pastry hopping at any point during our time in Houston. We went to the closest coffee place from Pit’s BBQ because we needed some coffee after eating a heavy meal. It may be an iced latte, but it was still strong.

  1. All of these food places look really good. Yes, the vegetable dish looks like water spinach. Very common in Malaysia. That is a very generous portion of BBQ, even for sharing. I like steak so I think I’ll enjoy a Houston BBQ.
