Where and What Did You Eat?

Due to a dearth of posts on this board, I'm asking:

So yesterday, where and what did you eat?

...and as a nod to the mods, in order to keep this Houston specific, I'm mostly interested in "Where".


I don't do breakfast.

Lunch: Kasra Persian Grill - Kubideh Combo with Grilled Veggies in lieu of the blackened tomatoes. (One of my favorite meals.)

Dinner: Home - Green Salad, Ham Steaks, Rigatoni & Cheese, Ranch Style Beans, (one of the few things I would have to have shipped to me if I ever moved out of state).

  1. Ended up for lunch today at Blue Fish on Washington. 2 for 1 sushi at lunch. Very tasty. There is a well known talk show/former city council on the radio here who constantly says he thinks people "fake" a love of sushi, because no one really likes sushi. Clueless.

      1. As DoobieWah requested, we'd appreciate it if people focused on eats that are available in Houston.

          Sorry Team. Thinking pizza today. Maybe Dolce Vita, my favorite pizza in Houston.

            I posted a long response to you and it's gone but here is the link to my review on the NOLA board. We'll be there in about 4 weeks :-)

            Oops, sorry, didn't read this until after I spent a long time responding to Lambowner's request.

          3. Yesterday:

            Lunch: Union Kitchen - Buffalo Chicken Wrap, (Not my favorite, but comes with those homemade potato chips).

            Dinner: Home - Two Alamo Tamales from the freezer and about an ounce of Aged Mild Cheddar. And too much Halloween candy.

            1. Today I ended up at Piola and had that Roka Cabana chopped salad we discussed here: Good lord it was good. We shared one between two people, but it could easily be shared among 4 for a starter salad. Layered tower of arugula, mozzarella fior di latte, diced tomatoes, diced yellow bell peppers, pistachio nuts, pomegranate dressing. The texture (pistachios!!) and flavors were terrific and I know I'll go back for that. And a ham/mushroom/artichoke pizza that was very very good. I know that Pizaro is getting all the love lately, but I do think both Dolce Vita and Piola make a better pie. It'll be more black bean soup tonight. And candy. Did everyone buy the Costco 90 ounce chocolate minis? At $13.99 it was hard to pass up. We gave almost all of it away.
