Although the menu at the Daily Review Cafe (3412 West Lamar, 713-520-9217) changes every day, one dish is ever present: the chicken potpie ($9.75). In this constantly changing world, it's comforting to know that certain classic dishes will always be around. The handmade puff pastry atop the pie is crimped and rolled around the edges so that it looks like a cap. And after you break through the flaky crust with your fork, the first taste lets you know it's made with real butter. There's no skimping on the chicken, either, with large pieces of solid white meat nesting nicely among onions, carrots and celery pieces in a rich, creamy sauce that tastes lightly of fresh fennel. Since every order is made from scratch, don't rush your server. Comfort is worth waiting for.

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.
