I recently moved to Houston from Dallas, where I leaned heavily on chowhound for recommendations. I am surprised there is such little action on the Houston board, considering how much of a foodie town Houston is. Are there other sites or blogs people read and contribute to in order to search out new places?

  1. Yeah, this site is woefully under utilized. You can join the Houston CH FB page.

    Houstonia.com and the food blog at houstonpress.com do a good job on new openings and reviews. There are a ton of local bloggers.

    1. Welcome to Houston. The Houston Press has a lot of info, same outfit as the Dallas Observer. Here's another blog with a few links.

      I've got more stored and will dig them up and post.

      1. Here's a "top ten" Spring Branch from the Press, a diverse neighborhood. There are links to others, it's just a start and by no means all inclusive of the neighborhoods. I take the Press with a bit of a grain of salt.

        1. Here's another, this should keep you busy. I've got a bacon cheeseburger w/jalapenos and Whatabuger mustard to prepare.
