One taste of the smoked catfish ($10.75) at Spanish Flowers (4701 North Main, 713-869-1706), and you'll know you're tasting something very special. The smoke flavor permeates the tender catfish, so much so that you'll swear you're eating a finer fish, like smoked trout or herring. The catfish fillet sits in a creamy, dark red guajillo pepper sauce, which adds only a slight heat to the dish. It's served with Veracruz rice (rice with corn, carrots and peas), charro beans and grilled veggies.
