Menu of Menus- Houston 2016

  
I had the chance to attend the Menu of Menus events hosted by Houston Press the other week! I have always wanted to go and was excited to score press tickets. Menu of Menus is such a great way to sample bites from some of the best food destinations in Houston. The event took place at Silver Street Studios in the Heights. It was packed, but we still managed to try food from the majority of the vendors and enjoyed the beverage offerings too. 

Let the games begin…  

First up was State of Grace, one of the most talked about new restaurants in town. It’s been on my list for a while and now I definitely understand the hype. This mini flavorful taco packed a punch. It was amazing and I wanted more but knew I had to save room!

Their ginger snap cookie sandwiches were equally delightful and had just the right amount of a ginger kick.

 

I loved the cabbage slaw in this taco from Cyclone Anaya, which I had tried for the first time at Tacolandia.

  

How cute are these mini bagels?! I can’t wait to check out a cooking class at White Plate Art in the near future.

 

Revelry on Richmond served up  ahi tuna tacos which were crisp and flavorful. They have an awesome happy hour menu and large patio for those in the area. 
  

I ran into one of my favorite foodie friends and fellow HFBC blogger, Kim!

    

In between all the food samples, we paused for some wine and craft cocktails. This was a great Old Fashioned from Old Forrester.

Next up were Brick House Tavern duck wings! I had never had a duck wing before, they were delicious and totally worth the mess.

We were obviously pretty full by this point but this booth smelled so good, I had to try a bite of pasta from Italiano’s. The cream sauce was delicious, perfect for when you want some comfort food carbs…not so perfect when you’re in the middle of a food marathon.

  

Thank god for cold brew from Black Hole coffee to help us power through to the finish line! I love camping out at their coffee house in West U. They have great coffee, chai, oatmeal, and wifi. 

Drumroll… My token for who served the best dish went to…  

  

Pico’s! I’m embarrassed to say I had never been to their restaurants and can’t wait to go in person soon. I ate a lot of tacos that night, and you all know my obsession for tacos is at the next level. These really blew me away and I can’t believe I’ve been missing out this whole time. Both tacos were the perfect ratio of meat to salsa to garnish. Their tacos were tender, juicy, and well seasoned. Overall they stole the show!

 
 

All in all it was a fun and decadent evening and great way to sample such a wide variety of food and drinks. We are lucky to live in such a diverse and welcoming  foodie city. I’m already looking forward to next years Menu of Menus and I’m excited to become a regular at more of the restaurants on this list!
