    Bob's Steak & Chop House - If steak is a sin, then Bob is the devil

    There are two things I loved about the humongous porterhouse steak I ate on my first visit to Bob's Steak & Chop House. Number one, the 28-ounce wet-aged USDA prime porterhouse is one of the thickest steaks in town. The reason that a thick bone-in st...

    NOTSUOH'S - TEXAS PRAIRIE FIRE

    Le Viet Restaurant & Bar - Sometimes Anglo-friendly Vietnamese food does taste better than the real thing

    Banh xeo does not mean "slightly deflated yellow football" in Vietnamese, though that's what the version at Le Viet restaurant on Westheimer looks like. As soon as our waitress set it down on the table, I knew we were in trouble. The appetizer was bi...

    Ponzo's - White Yankee

    Be prepared to wait 40 to 45 minutes when you order The Sicilian ($12.95) at Ponzo's (2515 Bagby, 713-526-2426), but it's worth the wait. Since it has no tomato sauce, this pizza is known as bianca (white). The dough is hand-thrown, then covered with...

    Venetian Bistro & Pastry Shop - Flaky Pastry
