More of your favorite Houston restaurants are coming on board for Menu of Menus every day -- and maybe even some that will be your new favorites after you sample their grub at our grand tasting event on Tuesday, April 9.
Since we're carefully curating the selection of restaurants this year, I'm pleased to report that they run the gamut of cuisines available in Houston. Peruvian food will be on hand from Latin Bites, Argentinean from Tango & Malbec, Mexican from Tacos del Julio and Taqueria Tepatitlan.
Finger Licking Bukateria will bring in the type of Nigerian fare that's influenced the sort of Creole cuisine brought in by The Cajun Stop. (I'm pretty sure we're the only food festival to bring in Finger Licking Bukateria, in fact, which means no more excuses: It's time to try -- and fall in love with -- Nigerian food once and for all.)
We'll be showcasing local coffee roasters with brews from Southside Espresso and Boomtown Coffee. Barbecue both old-school and modern will be brought in by Gatlin's and Beaver's. Austin-based Torchy's Tacos and Houston-bred Mission Burrito will compete for your tastebuds, as will Mia Bella and Italiano's. And the list doesn't stop there.
While we're adding new restaurants every day, here's the lineup so far:
Beaver's Boomtown Coffee The Cajun Stop The Counter Eatsie Boys Cafe Finger Licking Bukateria Frank's Americana Revival Gatlin's BBQ Italiano's J. Blacks Feel-Good Lounge Jerry Built Burgers Jersey Mikes Latin Bites Mia Bella Mission Burrito Ohh La La Dessert Radical Eats Sammy's Wild Game Shipley Do-Nuts Southside Espresso Tacos De Julio Taqueria Tepatitlan Torchy's Tacos Tango & Malbec The West End Whole Foods
