Westchase -- for its relatively small boundaries -- is a poster child for the breadth of ethnic cuisines available in Houston. Far from simply an area saturated with mid-rise office buildings and chain restaurant's, it's also a microcosm of the Bayou City. The neighborhood offers Cajun, Persian, Bosnian, Argentinean, French, Vietnamese, Spanish, Cajun, German, Mexican, British, Japanese, Portuguese, Brazilian and much, much more...if you just know where to look.
Along with Chinatown, Westchase was my destination of choice at lunch when I worked on the west side. If I still worked over there, I'd still be trekking up and down Westheimer and Bellaire each day on the hunt for great little holes-in-the-wall. If I missed your favorite, let us know about it in the comments section below.
Note: For the purposes of this post, Westchase is defined as bounded by Westheimer on the north, Gessner on the east, Dairy Ashford (not Wilcrest) on the west and the Westpark Tollway on the south.
