Sampler Plate: This Week in Food Blogs

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.
