The Foodie's List of 100 Things to Eat Before You Die...in Houston

When we published our "Foodie's List of 100 Things to Eat Before You Die," the suggestion was made by several people that we reprint the list -- this time with instructions on where to find these various delicacies in Houston.

I'll tell you that not all of the dishes or drinks on the list are readily available here, but you might be surprised at how many you can actually find if you know where to look.

So if you're feeling adventurous this year -- perhaps far more adventurous than only wanting to tackle our 100 Favorite Dishes list -- give this "expert"-level list a try and broaden your food horizons.

And remember: The restaurants or grocery stores listed for each item represent just one option for finding these foods; if you have other suggestions for a favorite foul or egusi spot, leave them in the comments section below.
