A Café Bites Nibble

Na Chan is the general manager of the newly opened Trios Downunder (10535 Westheimer, Suite 104, 713-975-8900). "This is really a first for the U.S. and the first in Houston," she says. "It is a franchise that was started by three brothers in Australia. It's flavorful but healthy fast food made with laffé, an Australian flat bread which we make into wraps. We also serve salads and spuds. We source only local products and use only 100 percent fresh ingredients. The group behind this venture is planning 15 more in Houston. They also own the rights to the franchises in the U.S. and China."

Café Bites tried one of the falafel wraps with a hummus dressing, as well as a hot Portuguese chicken wrap and a chicken schnitzel spud all of which were very tasty and, according to the in-store nutrition facts, quite healthy too.
