You Can't Go Wrong at Café Byblos
If you find yourself at Café Byblos (6134 Richmond, 832-251-0505), Houston's finest Lebanese restaurant, and can't decide what to order, get the delectable mixed grill ($16.95). It comes with a kafta kebab made of minced lamb, a shish taouk, wonderfully moist pieces of marinated chicken breast, and a beef kebab, chunks of marinated prime beef. On the side, there's a beautiful mound of brilliant white Basmati rice speckled with orange-colored grains of rice, and chunks of tomato, onion and bell pepper that have been cooked over the charcoal grill, imparting a strong smoke flavor to the whole dish.
