I Travel For The Food: Houston Edition
This past weekend I traveled to the lovely city of Houston, TX for my sisters birthday. Due to COVID-19 we all made sure we tested negative before traveling. Our flights were $105 each roundtrip and the AirBnb was $130 each. I’ve been to Texas before but only the areas near and around Dallas. The itinerary was based around food, food and more FOOD. Our intentions were to eat good and chill.
We touched down Thursday afternoon and checked into our cute little Airbnb. It was the perfect size and close to everything. Once we checked in and got situated we decided to dig right into the Houston food scene.
We came across this really cool taco spot, Blanco Tacos & Tequila. The queso was BOMB!!! We literally killed the bowl. The menu was great and had a variety of tacos, fajitas, and bowls. Tequila was plentiful and we had to try the flight. The ambiance here was everything!!!
To fulfill our sweet tooth’s we indulged in this super cute ice cream shop called CREAMISTRY. They make everything to order and had so many options to choose from.
Of course we had to hit up Turkey Leg Hut! Let me tell you, this place gives you such a chill vibe. They have a live DJ and you can rent a hookah. The food definitely lived up to the hype. I started with an appetizer that was suggested by our waiter and was not disappointed. He suggested the chicken boudin balls and they were delicious. I had the shrimp alfredo turkey leg and my friends ordered the glazed Hennessy one. Our table was full of food and the drinks had us leaving tipsy!
Later we hit up The Galleria to do some shopping and walk our food off. After that we headed back to the airbnb to chill and regroup. For dinner we found a place called the Grand Luxe Cafe and enjoyed some more great food and drinks.
The birthday girl found this really cute restaurant on TikTok and it was a must try on her list! We hit up State Fare Kitchen and Bar. If you go here you must order the breakfast brunch board!! It’s a board full of your favorite brunch items and it’s enough to feed 4-6 people. They had a variety of flights ranging from mimosas to Bloody Mary’s. The biscuits were sent from heaven and so damn good. The decor was very nice and the vibes here were amazing.
This afternoon we decided to hit up the Houston Graffiti Park. The wall murals were amazing and made for very good photo ops.
Later that evening we headed some miles away to visit a black owned winery named Erma Rose Winery. They offers wine tastings and you can sample as little as 4 wines of your choice or go all out and try 11. Of course we opted for the max .
I wouldn’t have felt right leaving Houston without eating The Breakfast Klub. Our flight was leaving early that afternoon so I decided to do a curbside order and although I wasn’t able to sit inside, the food didn’t disappoint. I ordered the fried Katfish and grits. It was seasoned to perfection. Let’s just say that I’ll be ordering this seasoning for myself so I can use it at home.
Overall, Houston was awesome! If you’re a foodie like me then you won’t be disappointed. It’s so many more restaurants we didn’t get to try but wanted to. I’ll definitely be planning another trip here soon
Hope I was able to inspire you and if you have a foodie destination that you’d like to visit or would recommend, I’d love to hear about it.
