Since I have not yet visited the great city of Houston, Texas, my friend Kenny filled me in on all the great places to eat there. This inside information comes from someone who loves exploring cities and finding new, great places to eat and drink. Here are his top picks: In Midtown, try Cyclone Anaya’s Mexican Kitchen, which has the best fish tacos he has ever had. The average dinner entrée prices are around $14 each. The Fish Restaurant and Sushi Bar, similar in flavor and style to the Fishbones chain, has a great menu of appetizers such as Lobster Puffs for $4, during Happy Hour on Thursdays.
When you are visiting the city, you also cannot miss these eateries: Ragin Cajun, which has a fun, casual atmosphere and a myriad of specialty po’ boy sandwiches and boiled crawfish; Beck’s Prime, which offers some of the best hamburgers in the U.S. in 11 varieties; Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen, which specializes in raw oysters, Louisiana gumbo, etoufee, and other Cajun specialties; and Pappasito's Cantina, which offers Tex Mex-style food at mid-range prices.
