    Where Are We Eating?

    A restaurant that serves you a plate of traditionally Mexican chicharrones alongside the more Tex-Mex accompaniments of rice and refried beans...all in a styrofoam container. (No, this was not a to-go order.) Can you figure out where we're eating thi...

    AVANT GARDEN'S STRAWBERRY-FIG GIN AND TONIC

    Centuries of belly dancing tradition have culminated in an effective way to make me feel uncomfortable. I have no idea how I'm supposed to react to it, as I found out last Tuesday at Avant Garden (411 Westheimer, 713-526-4648). When a costumed woman ...

    Argentina Caf

    Andres Perekalski and his family moved to Houston a couple of years ago from Florida, and to Florida from Buenos Aires, where Andres's parents owned a deli and coffee shop. His surname is not particularly Argentinean -- in fact, the roots of the fami...

    Brain Tacos or Cheesy Migas? - Two high-volume taquerias have a lot to say about Houston tacos.

    The "Trump Taco" at Chacho's Tacos on Westheimer in the Galleria was overloaded with grilled sirloin, mushrooms and cheese. The spinach-and-mushroom quesadilla was so full of cheese, it was almost an inch thick. My dining companion couldn't finish ha...

    Mamma Mia - Sonia's ravioli stuffed with chicken and mushrooms at Arturo's.

    Chefs like to pay tribute to people by naming dishes after them. And as a general rule, the better the dish, the more important the person. Arturo Boada, the chef and owner of Arturo's (1180-1 Uptown Park Blvd., 713-621-1180), named Sonia's Ravioli S...

    Valentine's Day Dining: Good Luck

    Molto Barrio Beet Green and Potato Soup

    I came across a bunch of recipes on the web that thanked Mario Batali for his beet green soup recipe in Molto Italiano. I never saw the original recipe, so I ended up making a variation on the variations. They all called for beet greens to be sauted...

    Salt and Pepper Chocolate at Central Market

    I really liked the dark chocolate with espelette peppers from Bovetti. It's easy to tell that this company is truly French -- its website is beautiful, but none of the buttons work. It looks like the concept for their packaging was borrowed from Rich...

    Vermont Creamery Cultured Butter

    Vermont Creamery's cultured butter with seasalt comes in a little wicker basket too. The sea salt isn't as intense and the crunchy texture is missing, but the butter is excellent. And I like the idea of supporting an upscale dairy industry in the U.S...

    Long Sing Market's "Rice Box"
