Eating My Words: Not to be confused with our own blog, this is Texas Monthly's food blog -- mostly penned by head food writer Patricia Sharpe, who recently named her top picks for the 12 best new restaurants in Texas. Spoiler alert: Four are in Houston, by far the most that any city racked up.
Science Based Cuisine: What's this? A new Houston food blog? Nope -- it's Dr. Ricky's food blog with a timely name change. Explains Ricky:
It's simply acknowledging what I've been writing all along. Science-based cuisine is a frame of mind about food and food practices that incorporates scientific reasoning. It'll be fun.
Bayou City Bites: Now here's a new food blog. Welcome Bayou City Bites to the mix, with this post on one of the only good things to come out of the Walmart development on Yale: a new outpost of Jersey Mike's Subs, which I will admit is a damn good chain of sandwich shops.
Urban Swank: It's difficult to get a good brisket in this town, but you already knew that. That's why the Urban Swank girls were so excited to find Brooks' Place in Cypress, a trailer that serves barbecue so good it "would make any brisket lover smile or cry tears of joy." Damn. Guess I need to head north soon.
