Chinese In Houston??? Help! I am craving!!!

Hello There,
I was reading another post about chow fun in the Dallas area, does anyone know about Houston???? I was introduced to the dish a few years back by a friend when I still lived in California, and since I have moved to Texas (Houston/ Katy area) I have not been able to find it!!! I miss it so much- I don't know much about Chinese food, but I have tried Lo mein (sp?) but it's a different taste... If anyone could rec. a place with Chow Fun, that would be soooo appreciated!!!

  1. You might start here It's been years since I have been to Houston's Chinatown but as I remember it was rather large.

    1. Hey Crisntina, I learned to love chow fun in CA too. Thankfully, I've found a few good places in Austin for it, but I bet Houston has even more options. Check out Fung's Kitchen, I like it for dim sum, but I know they also serve several chow fun dishes. Unfortunately, I haven't tried it there yet, so let us know if it is good or not if you make it out there.

      Good luck!

        Thanks!!! I will definately check both of these leads out, much appreciated!

      2. I like Qin's Dynasty at Westpart and Buffalo Speedway. It's a very pretty restaurant and the food is good.

        1. Sinh Sinh on Bellaire right by Beltway 8 makes the world's best Chinese. Make sure you get the Chinese menu, which has the good food.

          1. You'll have lots of authentic choices if you head for Bellaire Blvd and work your way east from Beltway 8. (You can go west too, which tends to have more Vietnamese places).

            On your left going east, as noted was Sinh Sinh. They should have chow fun. Also crispy noodles, which are cooked noodles then quick fried in hot oil so that the outside is crispy and the inside is soft, and served with a sauce and meat/seafood or veggies on top.

              Next time you go to Sinh Sinh, be sure to get the eggplant stuffed with shrimp.
