Bus Travel To Houston: What You Have To See And Eat
Houston is one of Texas’ most spectacular cultural meccas in the country and is constantly attracting thousands of visitors every year. With music, sports, art, history, and theater, Houston continues to serve up a diverse selection of unforgettable entertainment. From upscale eateries to low-key sidewalk cafes, we’ll go over some of the most popular restaurants that are perfect for visiting foodies.
Go For Greek at Helen Greek Food And Wine
Craving some authentic Mediterranean cuisine? Helen Greek Food and Wine has everything it takes to satisfy your cravings. Try the create-your-own gyro or split a massive pork shoulder with your date. Browse the selection of Hellenic wine so extensive that it’s actually the second largest selection in the United States. If you can’t make it for dinner, visit the restaurant in the late morning to try out their unique brunch menu.
Eat Steak The Way it Was Meant to be Eaten at Pappas Bros. Steakhouse
With two locations in the Houston area (downtown and the Galleria), Pappas Bros. Steakhouse is the premiere steakhouse for anyone on the hunt for a life-changing steak. The steaks are aged in-house and the restaurant employs a nearly month-long aging process to make the beef flavors incredibly savory and complex. You’ll definitely want to pair your juicy slab of beef with a word-class wine or a vintage whiskey. Don’t forget to top off the night with a decadent chocolate midnight cake or the gooey pecan pie.
Chow Down on Pork Rinds and Korean Wings at Ohn Korean Eatery
For an affordable night of dining, head to Houston’s Chinatown for a round of inventive cocktails and traditional Korean eats at Ohn Korean Eatery. The neon-lit restaurant boasts a vast selection of alcoholic creations as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Try the ever-popular green tea infused soju, the seoul mule, or the far east old-fashioned made with Japanese whiskey. If you’re making a romantic evening out of your visit to Ohn Korean Eatery, split a bottle of bohae black raspberry Korean wine. For colder drink options, order a refreshing melona makgeolli smoothie or a banana berry mak smoothie. Pair your drinks with classic Korean bar food like garlic soy wings, brisket ramyeon, and kimchi fried rice. Top the night off with a dessert made with vanilla ice cream and honey butter rice krispies.
Get Your Fill of Texas Barbecue at CorkScrew Barbecue
A foodie tour of a major Texas city without at least one stop at a barbecue joint would be utterly unthinkable. It’s the state known for creating the most delicious barbecued meats in the country. Anyone visiting Texas, specifically Houston, needs to treat themselves to a night of barbecue and there’s no better place to do it than CorkScrew barbecue. It’s so good that it was ranked number 7 in Texas Monthly‘s 50 Best Barbecue Joints in the entire state. Try the barbecue or potato tacos before sampling the whole hog sandwich or the duroc pork spare ribs. Wash it down with a local brew, domestic beer, or a glass of house wine. The restaurant also accommodates takeout, so if you’d rather get barbecue and eat it from the comfort of your hotel room, that’s an option too!
