Sampler Plate: This Week in Food Blogs
Each week, we put together a sampler plate of the most interesting links from both local and national food blogs. Know a blog we should be paying particular attention to? Leave the address in the comments section below.
Great Food Houston: It seems like downtown has no shortage of fabulous little Latin restaurants these days, from Macondo Latin Bistro to Andalucia, from Samba Grille to Latin Bites. Ruthie fills us in on why the latter is her new restaurant obsession.
CultureMap: Also from Ruthie, but in a different publication altogether, is this venerable list of the best banh mi in Houston. No Cali Sandwich? No Cafe TH? That's okay -- we'll keep those to ourselves.
29-95: Syd Kearney points out that with Magnolia Sliders in town, you don't have to buy a ticket to the Rodeo to get your funnel cake fix.
Golubka: The first of two "out-of-towner" blogs we're featuring this week, Golubka deserves special recognition for crafting one of the most beautiful, most delicate and most creative desserts I've ever seen: candy quail eggs. You must see them to believe them.
Rodzilla Reviews: I love a food blogger that reviews Cap'n Crunch and high-end restaurants with equal fervor. Rodzilla is no exception. And his latest discovery came before I even received the press release for it in my inbox: Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack, an ice cream partnership with Jimmy Fallon (yes, really) that has incorporated fudge-covered potato chips and fudge-covered popcorn (YES, REALLY) into vanilla bean ice cream with a salty caramel swirl. It's pretty much the best thing ever created, and I haven't even tried it yet.
