Food & Wine Lists 10 Houston Plates

New, 1 comment

Calling Houston "America's newest capital of great food," Food & Wine editor Kate Krader presents this list of 10 dishes that provide the rest of the country with an overview of the city's dining scene. It all seems pretty reasonable, yes? A good mix of high and low; places that get a lot of attention (Oxheart, Underbelly); places that deserve more attention (Local Foods, Crawfish & Noodles)

1. Crunchy Chicken Sandwich at Local Foods
2. Blackstrap Daiquiri at The Original Okra Charity Saloon
3. Fatty Brisket at Gatlin's BBQ
4. Hangover Killer Soup at La Fisheria
5. Chilaquiles at La Guadalupana Bakery & Café
6. Cauliflowers Cooked Different Ways at Oxheart
7. Cajun Spiced Crawfish at Crawfish & Noodles
8. Vietnamese Wagyu Meatballs at Underbelly
9. Morning Thali at Pondicheri
10. Ham & Eggs at The Pass & Provisions
