The Chinese diaspora has been Houston’s gain. Their simple eggplant in spicy garlic sauce is a classic in the Houston Sichuan food scene.

To get you oriented, we have an overview of the eight kinds of Chinese food you’ll find on or near Bellaire Boulevard. Mala Sichuan’s dry pot prawns. Photo by Becca Wright.

It's like the ultimate restaurant "love child".

Of the newcomers I have tried, I was most impressed by Osteria Mazzantini and Nara. It's like the ultimate restaurant "love child". Misha Govshteyn, food enthusiast: Caracol is an extremely exciting restaurant, showing Houston the side of coastal Mexican food more common to Southern California than Texas. Hopefully the kitchen can maintain high quality of the first few weeks given the chef shuffles.

You may have heard the statistic: According to the Zagat Survey, Houstonians eat out more often than do residents of any other major American city. And it's true! Houston is a city that loves its restaurants. Now, with the August 2008 publication of The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston, brought to you by the editors and writers of My Table magazine, dining around Houston is about to become an even more delicious adventure. Capitalizing on My Table's 14 years of covering everything food in Houston and our reputation as Houston's only editorially independent magazine devoted solely to dining in Houston, this is not a traditional restaurant guidebook so much as -- as the title promises -- a food-lover's guide. Our overriding editorial guideline: Where would we send our best foodie friend? The 5x8 book -- easy to slip into a handbag or briefcase -- is divided into three chapters: Local Flavors has more than 100 bakeries, ethnic markets, farmers' markets, butchers, gelato shops, fishmongers, chocolate shops, coffeehouses, tea rooms, and much more; Spirited Houston lists more than 95 wine bars, wine and spirits retailers, brewpubs, hotel bars and dives; and Restaurants & Cafes covers everything else, from fine-dining establishments to quirky ethnic eateries off the beaten path. Besides the main listings -- nearly 550 in all -- The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston features dozens of color photos, a fold-out map, sidebars and boxes with everything from a list of our favorite boiled-crawfish spots to the town's best sports bars (as chosen by Houston Dynamo star Brian Ching), from a round-up of pick-your-own orchards to the best annual food festivals, from a list of local cooking schools to a chocolatier's secret sources for chocolate-making supplies, from our favorite BYOB restaurants to five spots that serve English-style afternoon tea. The book even has a dozen recipes from Houston's best-known restaurants, including Cafe Annie, Mark's American Cuisine, Brennan's and Ouisie's Table. In other words, this book is richer, deeper and more varied than the traditional restaurant directory-style guidebook. We don't pretend to list everything in town -- only those places that are worthy, beloved, compelling, irresistible or simply cannot be ignored.
User reviews
I bought this book after I had borrowed it from a friend (and kept it too long). It gives good information regarding ambiance, as well, for example if you are looking for a place to sit and work (a 24 h starbucks!), and is good for my husband and I who are finicky restaurant eaters!
I have found some interesting places I want to try and the ones I have been to, the reviews and recommendations were spot-on.
My copy arrived yesterday, and being a big fan of My-Table magazine, I was expecting a superior product. The book is not organized in a logical fashion, nor does it rate the restaurants, or indicate the cost of a meal.
As a restaurant guide it's not very useful at all.
This book is a fantastic gift for anyone living in the Houston area- natives and newbies alike. With such an affordable price, get one for yourself, too. It is organized by type of dining experience: farmer's markets, bars, fried chicken, brunch, mexican etc, so it's a little different but very thoughtfully laid out. USING THE INDEX MAKES IT QUITE EASY! This isn't the Zagat survey, so you can decide yourself on your experience for wherever you choose to go. Service and food quality is indicated as well as pricing in the blurbs about the different places... However, it does give a lot of helpful information on what some of the best things are to order, what the locals love, and what the secret specialties are. This book is honest but pleasant, not rude and bitchy like many others are...This is a good book for all ages of diners, from High Schoolers to senior citizens. LOVE THE RECIPES FROM HOUSTON'S TOP CHEFS! What a great idea!
I'm a New Yorker and I love this book! Like New Yorkers, Houstonians know their food and their food lovers! I couldn't wait to get my copy and it did not disappoint! "The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston" takes you to the vibrant underbelly of Houston cuisine. It's ethnically diverse, edgy and, most of all, useful. Teresa Byrne-Dodge and her team from "My Table" magazine have done it again--this book is just what I'd expect from a globally recognized family of food writers, publishers and editors. It's a must have in a foodie's paradise. Raise your fork and your credit card and order this book now!
Much more than a guidebook to area restaurants, "The Ultimate Food Lover's Guide to Houston" is just that, a guide to all the interesting and important spots that a food lover should be aware of in one of the country's best food cities. There are descriptions of the best wine bars, farmers' markets, pubs, ethnic grocers, butchers, cooking classes, and much more, in addition to brief profiles of restaurants of every stripe and price range that you ought to know about if you like to dine out. Editor Teresa Byrne-Dodge, along with her team of writers, brings a great understanding and balance concerning all things food-related about the city of Houston that might be missing elsewhere, and which makes for very useful and accurate copy. She reported on restaurants for the "Houston Post", created the successful "My Table" magazine (where I often contribute), and was the long-time editor for the Houston portion of the Zagat Survey; she knows the expansive food and dining landscape better than anyone, which gives this small volume additional heft. Not incidentally, it makes for a fitting complement to my "Houston Dining on the Cheap", and a great resource for anyone who enjoys food in Houston.
I love this book!! Since I moved to Houston I've been amazed at how great the food scene here is. But it's always been a challenge to know where to go because there are so many places with such a variety of restaurants, especially when I have friends visiting from out of town. Now I have one copy in my car and one at home and use it all the time. I am even reading the book when I'm not looking for a restaurant. There are so many places to go which I haven't even tried yet, and the comments are pretty accurate without being too bitchy. I never knew about the farmers markets until I read about them here. Great information for anyone who is into good food. This is a hefty book and a lot of fun too. I recommend it to anyone into the Houston food scene.
I order the book and found that it was indeed a great guide. The only 2 things I count on when searching for food is this book and menufreak.com site. The book is a great list but on Menufreak for Houston it actually lets you search any item at any restaurant. AMAZING!!!
