Best Brunch – Montrose: UB Preserv

This neighborhood cult favorite — a reinvention of the now defunct Underbelly — pairs Houston hero Chris Shepherd with the talented chef de cuisine Nick Wong. On Sundays, the team offers a dim sum-style brunch that feels so wholly Houston it almost hurts. The menu blends global cuisines flawlessly, sporting things like delicate smoked boudin siu mai, chilled king crab noodles, schmaltz toast and shrimp masala tostada. Dining with a crew? Go big with large plates of Chinese sausage-stuffed crispy chicken or Vietnamese short rib fajitas. Just leave room for the ca phe sua da carrot cake, from pastry mastermind Victoria Dearmond.

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
