Food Trends: Poop-Themed Cafe

A “toilet-themed dessert bar”? Desserts that look like crap? No folks I am not making this up. There is an actual popular Poop Cafe in Canada! While the idea of eating out of a toilet may not appeal to most of us (me included), the cafe is proving popular with lots of tourists. The cafe is…

Mojito.  Cherry Limeade.  Coconut Curry.  Peanut Butter with Grape Jelly.  Dill Pickle.  Jalapeño Ranch.  Watermelon.  M&Ms.  These are just a few, out of an abundance, of flavors to choose from at The Popcorn Bar.  We happened to be in the area and I wanted to stop by.  I recently heard about The Popcorn Bar by…

Bernie’s Burger Bus

As an American, this country is well known for our burgers so I wanted to make a stop at the newest venture in town trying to make its mark on the industry, Bernie’s Burger Bus.  Serving as both a resrurant and food truck, this burger joint just recently opened back in 2010, by chef Justin Turner…

National Taco Day! Taco Nuts Food Truck

Houston is not the best city known for its abundance of food trucks roaming the city streets, but once I do see or spot one I’m always the first to try something new.  So to my great surprise (and just in the time for National Taco Day) my hubby and I saw a few at a…

The Waffle Bus

I have been hearing quite a few rumblings about the infamous Waffle Bus and their fried chicken and waffles.  I just had lunch earlier so I wasn’t in the mood to try their fried chicken and waffles but did opt for dessert, so I wanted to try the ‘Strawberry Irish Cream Creme Brûlée’ waffle.  After I…

BLU Restaurant & Lounge

I love a good brunch like any other foodie, so I decided to try a new place located in Sugarland, BLU Restaurant.  It doesn’t hurt that they offer a complimentary drink with Sunday brunch!  We got there exactly when it opened at 11:00am and it seemed like the employees were dragging to get the place…
