A change of venue has done nothing to diminish this restaurant’s top-notch cuisine.
Houstonians have a lot of big opinions, especially when it comes to food. When I first moved here, I was told that no matter what I write about burgers, barbecue or Tex-Mex, readers are going to challenge me because Houstonians hold these three things very dear. I have something to add to that trif ... More >>

I love cooking for my fiancé and me, but most of the time, cooking for two proves to be difficult. If I don't make a plan, I end up running around in circles at the grocery store and wasting half the ingredient's I've bought (and I hate wasting food). Enter What's Cooking This Week - my weekly meal ... More >>
I had a lot of questions on my first visit to the new Kublai Khan Crazy Mongolian Stir-Fry on Milam: Why is there a weird indoor-outdoor bar greeting customers when they first walk into the heavy double doors? Why did a waitress take our drink orders and then claim that she didn't? How can having so ... More >>
When we talk about Thai food in Houston, people generally point to Vieng Thai or Asia Market. Everyone seems to overlook the Thai food out on Bellaire Boulevard, which, while not as ubiquitous as Chinese or Vietnamese, can definitely be found. One of my favorites has been Tony Thai, not only becaus ... More >>
Montrose gets a new "comfort" Thai restaurant.
I like the continuing trend of Houston's food trucks increasingly accepting credit/debit cards. Pi Pizza Truck, The Rice Box, Ladybird, and now Pad Thai Box all take your plastic, happily. Any last excuses you really had about "never carrying cash" fly out the window, leaving you free to explore som ... More >>
Almost exactly a year ago, I left a job downtown to start a more exciting one in Northwest Houston. While it may have been a good career move, it killed the fun I used to have at lunchtime. I went from getting to see and dine with my spouse and my friends every day to driving around, alone, in searc ... More >>
When you mention Thai food to people, the first reaction you usually get is something pertaining to its spiciness. And while Thai food can be very spicy, most places around town are more than willing to work with customers. And really there is so much more to Thai food than heat. Sweet, sou ... More >>

Why is it when ever you order food at a Thai restaurant and you say you want it hot, they never make it really hot? That is what Thai food is all about - hell, they even have a dish called Tiger Cry. For crying out loud, is there a special button they press when the order is for a Caucasian t ... More >>

Thai Bistro's new location is changing the game on the west end of Westheimer.
Originally, this recipe was created to be a fun variation on Abuelita's empanadas, which we were like to make and stock in the freezer at the start of the semester. Think about it: no utensils needed, no plate even... just a curry puff, napkin, and probably a glass of water to curb the heat. ... More >>
Kay Soodjai and her sister-in-law Supatra Yooto opened the Golden Room in Montrose 27 years ago.
