Souvenirs in Houston
The typical Houston souvenir draws inspiration from Texas. Ie Cowboy hats,
which, by the way, are much more expensive than you think, if you then buy a
real version, belt buckles with ox emblems, Texas flags and maybe an elaborate
craft product. There are many souvenir bins. One of the better, and more
expensive, Texas and The Territories is located at The Galleria
Eating in Houston
Houston is one of the cities in the United States with the best restaurant
offerings. The residents often eat their food outside, which ensures that the
restaurants are usually well visited.
The variety of cuisine is great in Houston and in addition to compulsory
Tex-Mex food and barbecue, which you just have to experience, you have to make
room for food from Germany, France, India, Italy, Lebanon, China, Thailand and
Brazil, only to mention something.
With its location near the sea, seafood is popular. Eat shrimp and other
shellfish at a restaurant or buy directly from boats at the harbor.
Restaurant tips in Houston
Of course, there are many downtown restaurants, and the Westheimer Road
that runs through Montros, Galleria Areas and River Oaks has a number of
restaurants. One suggestion is Mark's American Cuisine where it
would be unnecessary to explain the type of food on the menu? The address is
1628 Westheimer Road. The restaurant is very popular and reservations
should be made early.
A good (and typically American) alternative is the Cheesecake Factory
at 5015 Westheimer Road. [see image first in article].
Do you like Chinese food, or for that matter Vietnamese food? Then visit
Houston's big Chinatown. Here you will get everything from Peking Duck to Dim
Sum. In the US, they love Asian food!
Do you want a slightly informal evening of real fajitas and maybe one or more
Maragaritas too? Try El Tiempo Cantina at 5602 Washington
Avenue. Mexican and Italian cuisine and a lovely atmosphere. Often full on
