On the list is El Coco from Caracol. "Inside the chocolate-coconut sphere is a mound of coconut buttercream, coconut ganache, coconut streusel and whipped coconut. They bring out a mallet for you to break it open and consume the treasures inside." [Zagat Houston]

CLEAR LAKE— For those still recovering from hefty holiday spending, here's a list of budget lunch spots in the Clear Lake area.
