Stuffed Dates at Be-Wiched

Be my date: The stuffed dates ($6) at Be-Wiched (1844 West­heimer, 713-520-5300) are covered in a slice of prosciutto before they're pan-fried to a crispness. But it's what's inside these little wonders that will set your taste buds a-poppin' — roasted jalapeño and Gorgonzola (how do they get it all in there?). When you pierce each one with your fork, the melted Gorgonzola oozes out, binding with the spicy pepper, the sweet date and the salty prosciutto. Delicious.
