My Top 5 Houston Food Experiences
Food is more than just about the actual food. Often times, it represents an experience. This experience encompasses the setting, the people, and obviously, the fabulous food. Here are the top five food experiences in our city.
5. Go to Leonard's I listened to the expert. I drove into Acres Homes one afternoon and went to Leonard's. It's basically a burger shack. You park your car, you mosey over to the structure and slide open an old screened window, and you order a burger--from Leonard himself. The burger is easily one of the best you'll eat in this city, but it doesn't hold a candle to the man. I love when you can immediately detect the love and passion someone has for their craft. Leonard's craft is making burgers, and his fries are damn good too.
New York Bagel & Coffee Shop.
4. A Walk Through Central Park...I Mean, Central Market Have you ever taken a walk through Central Market in mid-February, specifically, a few days before Valentine's? It's quite an experience, one filled with flowing chocolate fountains and exotic cheeses. One year, I waited almost 30 minutes just to get a pound of sliced roast beef from the deli. Granted, it's an absolute madhouse, but it's an entertaining a spectacle and certainly gets you in that commercially made-up-holiday spirit.Next Page
