    Feasting Fun at Menu of Menus

    As I was leaving Spring Street last night, I noticed a line winding around the ruddy brick building for Menu of Menus. Even at 8:30 p.m., people were still clamoring to get in. And why not? Inside was a treasure trove of treats from more than 30 rest...

    Revisiting an Old Favorite: Udipi Caf

    As such, I found myself headed toward Hillcroft, landing at Udipi Caf. It was a little late for lunch, but I decided to take my chances with the buffet line anyway, taking comfort in the fact that at the very least I could get some fresh dosa and c...

    Tuwo and Suya and Egusi, Oh My!

    Think of tuwo like a giant, jolly ball of dumplings. Despite Houston's wealth of ethnic food -- and even its wealth of African food -- eating Nigerian cuisine can be intimidating. Unfamiliar words, unfamiliar ingredients and unfamiliar foodstuffs ...
