Each week, we put together a sampler plate of the most interesting links from both local and national food blogs. Know a blog we should be paying particular attention to? Leave the address in the comments section below.

Jack Tyler Dines: CultureMap writer Ruthie Johnson alerted me to this food blog and I'm glad she did; it had somehow flown entirely under our radar. Jack Tyler reviews restaurants all over the city in a fun, playful, well-informed style with (and this is always important) great pictures to boot. See his latest entry on Las Ventanas as an example. I can't wait to check this place out.

Great Food Houston: Speaking of Ruthie, I love this recent post on her personal blog that's simply titled "5 Reasons I'm Geeked About Revival Market."

Robb Walsh: Our former food critic has a hearty thank-you for his recent James Beard Foundation Award nomination over at his blog.

29-95: Alison Cook has a great idea for the recent beautiful weather, and it starts with a muffaletta at Maceo's in Galveston: "...purchase your Maceo's sandwich unheated, then walk around with it until the cooler chill has worn off. Then it's picnic time."

CultureMap: Finally, Marene Gustin catches up with Carl Rosa and the Sushi Club of Houston, where the group has been weathering the turmoil in Japan...sort of. Landing shortly after the earthquake struck, Rosa reports that it's been life as usual in southern Japan.

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.
