Where Should We Eat

Cecilia Mancera

Houston is known as being one of the largest cities in the U.S., therefore giving us a diverse selection of foods from all different cultures. Quickly being one of the most moved-to cities from all around, here you can find the best quick bites and desserts.

Our newest hottest spot starts in Post Houston, where a massive new building was made to host a multi-cultural food and workspace, located on Franklin St. Downtown. I ended up trying the birria tacos and chicken flautas at “Taco Fuego”. On top of their amazing green and red salsa, the food was very filling and gave an amazing first impression. For dessert, we tried the popular ice cream spot, “Flower and Cream”. I ordered cookies and cream ice cream on a black vanilla cone and for a basic ice cream flavor, it was the best one I’ve had in a while.

Traveling west Houston, close to Chinatown along Bellaire is a restaurant called Shabu Zone. I only heard about this restaurant/ buffet not too long ago from some friends. Safe to say I was not the same coming out of that meal. It consists of building your own ramen bowl where you pick your choice of meats and broth at the table, and you decided on your noodles, veggies, and extras at the buffet tables. Eating two full bowls will get you stuffed but not without trying their dessert table. I chose green tea and vanilla ice cream, and it was just the right amount of everything.

Trying to find sweet dessert places can be hard sometimes, but not in Houston. Further down Bellaire is 85degree Bakery, a bakery that has been around since 2008. I recommend the Milk Butter Puff Pastries but there are many to choose from. They also serve coffee, milk tea, and boba drinks.

Food and good times are never hard to find here in Houston, you just have to know where to look.
