We sure do love kolaches in Houston, especially ones from an inventive baker like Pera, who creates them with satsuma oranges, strawberries and ricotta cheese, and sausages poached in local beer. The article also mentions other Houston kolache restaurants, such as Kolache Factory, Kolache Mama and Christy's Donuts.
