This year leading up to our annual Best of Houston® issue, we're counting down our 100 favorite dishes in Houston. This list comprises our favorite dishes from the last year, dishes that are essential to Houston's cultural landscape and/or dishes that any visitor (or resident) should try at least once.
Just look at them, for God's sake. What else do I need to say?
There's no such thing as a "short stack" here. Union Kitchen's pancakes come in one size -- immense -- and one flavor -- wonderful. With each order, you'll get seven of these fluffy, golden, nutty, buttery rounds of deliciousness and you'll like it. The only minor complaint I have is that I wish Union Kitchen had real maple syrup to pour on top instead of maple-flavored sugar water.
On the other hand, that's why God made purses and Ziploc baggies. So if you see a woman smuggling maple syrup out of her purse this weekend, look away because I'm about to embarrass myself by eating a few plates of these all at once. They're shamefully delicious.
