As most of you know I am a consultant with Pragmatic Works, which requires me to travel a bit. During my travels I encounter new people, new places and what I realized recently new food. I am not going to say this is some type of new blog series that I am starting, because I have started several and just got bored with them after a few postings. What I am going to say is that if time allows I am going to share a few thoughts and photos on places that I eat during my travels. With that, here are a few comments about two places that dined at during my last engagement in Houston, TX.
The first eatery is Verona’s Pizza and Italian Cuisine, which is located at 3995 S. Gessner Rd. Unfortunately, this restaurant does not have a website, but you can click here to view their menu. If you enjoy Garlic Bread and Pizza this place is a must stop. Me and a couple of guys from the client site visited this place for lunch and all I have to say is the food was excellent. Here are a couple of photos for your viewing enjoyment:
The next place is Masala Wok, which serves Indian Asian cuisine. This intrigued me a bit so I decided to go. What made my visit to this eatery really enjoyable was the group that I joined for dinner. I had the opportunity to eat dinner with five guys from India and they really new what to pick from the menu. Instead of ordering individual plates, they ordered several items from the menu and our table became a huge buffet. My favorite item on the “buffet” was the Lollipop Chicken. Now I have eaten Lollipop lamb chops, but never chicken. Here is another picture for your viewing enjoyment:
So if you are in Houston stop by either of these fine establishments and enjoy a taste of the local flavor. Oh yeah, Masala Wok is a chain with restaurants in Dallas, Houston and Austin.
Talk to you soon,
