Top 5 Enchilada Platters to Try In Houston

Satisfy Tex-Mex cravings with one of these offerings.

Now for the good news: Sprouts opened its fourth Houston location on August 7 with a grand-opening celebration that included free coffee and muffins as well as goodie bags for the first 200 paying customers.

Eater reports that the owners of Guru Burgers & Crepes have opened a new restaurant in Sugar Land called Jupiter Pizza & Waffle Co. The menu includes "stone baked Neapolitan pizza" and Belgian waffles as well as farm-to-table salads.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Fusion Taco has opened its first brick-and-mortar restaurant at 801 Congress. The menu has expanded to include items like 24-hour Beef Short Rib Vindaloo with raita and cucumber tomato relish and Tempura Rock Shrimp with jalapeño/wasabi aioli, watercress and togarashi. It's already getting rave reviews from Gastronaut, and we agree that the menu looks pretty tasty.

The new Midtown hot spot 3rd Floor opened July 24 with a big crowd who came to see what all the hype was about. The menu has eight cocktails on tap as well as 50 American draft beers and 50 American draft wines. The bar also has a small dinner/snack menu. The coolest thing about 3rd Floor is its view: Two large patios look out over the downtown skyline to the north and Midtown to the south.

Though it hasn't opened quite yet, the date is getting closer. Radical Eats will open for breakfast and lunch (and brunch) in Montrose on August 11. Radical Eats has taken the place of the vegan/vegetarian-only joint Roots Bistro and will now be offering a few dishes for omnivores in addition to the beloved veggie fare. Owner Staci Davis promises that the menu will still be "radical," but now it will be radical with some sustainably raised meat. Dinner service begins soon after opening week, and a grand-opening celebration will be held August 28. The new menu isn't yet available on the Radical Eats Web site, but we're pretty interested to see what Davis decides to cook up next.
