It's nice to know that our weekly Where Are We Eating? posts inspire more than just bleary-eyed Monday morning stabs at the correct answer. On today's post about Pondicheri, commenter Kelly told us that a recent Where Are We Eating? photo first inspired her to try what we think is the best new restaurant of the year:
Great photo of the blackberry pear coffee cake -- it is so moist and delicious! Have been 3 times in the past 2 weeks, including once for breakfast because I was so inspired by the HoustonPress photo of the Breakfast Thali. The masala eggs are scrumptious. . .
Good to know, and we'll pass along the compliment to our photographers: Troy Fields, who shot the photos for this week's cafe review, and Gary R. Wise, who took the initial "inspiration" photo of that tasty thali.
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.
