Katharine Shilcutt wrote about her top five food trends that should be exported from Houston, which led commenter Salynch to share a thought on another potential export:
When I first heard about this question, the first thing that came to my mind was something much more broad - good food at reasonable prices. Houston's best restaurants might not be able to compete with best restaurants in other cities around the world, but I dare say that when it comes to truly great food at prices that don't kill the pocket book, Houston is nearly impossible to beat.
Hear, hear, Salynch! One reasonably priced White Russian, over to you.
