One of the best birria spots in Fort Bend County is only a year old, and it only recently reopened in June after about a month of renovations.
The commercialization of the restaurant industry has led to an increasingly conformist and conservative aesthetic that has made its way into the dining experience of most people.
There are many restaurants serving New Orleans or Louisiana-inspired food in the Houston area, but not many that can boast an atmosphere that approximates the real thing like The Rouxpour in Sugar Land.
Full disclosure: I wasn’t looking for Love Bird. But when I found out the place I was looking for in the Four Corners neighborhood of Sugar Land wasn’t open that day, I wanted to find something similar.
I think it’s appropriate that most of my rites of passage that I’ve experienced as an adopted Texan have been food-related.
The most recent of these was making my long-awaited first trip to Torchy’s Tacos when its Stafford location opened in April, the second in Fort Bend County.
While I don’t have much of a personal connection to Japan or Japanese culture, I’ve long admired from a distance the Japanese way of doing business — exporting some of its most iconic brands across the globe from a relatively remote archipelago with a colorful and youthful pizazz.
Constellation Field has been a fixture for Sugar Land families for nearly a decade. But ballpark food hasn’t always exactly been a highlight of that experience.
Opening a bar during a global pandemic is a bold bet, but Bar Kada in Missouri City is making the calculation that the best days will be ahead in a post-COVID-19 reality.
A burger and fries is about as iconic as it gets. It’s as American as Superman, ice cream and apple pie. But the visionaries behind Guru Enlightened Burgers and Bowls, Robert White and Victor Litwinenko, decided their burgers would have more interesting sidekicks.
Central to Umami’s claim as the best sushi joint in town is the quality of its fish. The restaurant said it never uses Yellowfin tuna and only uses Spanish Bluefin tuna, one of the most expensive varieties in the world.
You can rack up a lot of mileage discovering some of the finest restaurants in Fort Bend County, but sometimes, the best food is right under your nose.
Almost anywhere you go, you can enjoy a bagel nowadays that will accommodate any dietary requirement or taste. Nutella? Check. Hummus? Check. Dairy-free cream cheese? Check.
The latest stop on the Fort Bend County Crawfish Season express didn’t leave much room for error with the high expectations it set from the moment I looked at the menu.
One of the most Instagrammable restaurants in Sugar Land’s Town Square is also one of the best modern Southern spots in the area. State Fare Kitchen & Bar made its debut in Fort Bend County in July at 15930 City Walk, joining its sister location in West Houston.
Recently, I scratched the surface of the Filipino food scene in Fort Bend County with a visit to popular fast food chain, Jollibee.
I have lived near the Texas Gulf Coast for two years, but this spring is my first crawfish season in the Houston area. It’s been an exciting thing to watch grocery stores and local restaurants set up their crawfish boils and release their seasonal menus in a variety of creative ways.
Last month, I was among the first visitors to Stafford Kabab & Grill, one of the city’s newest restaurants, having opened at the end of January a stone’s throw from where U.S. Highway 90A meets Dulles Avenue.
Set your phone’s navigation app on course to a Mexican restaurant in the Houston area and you’re bound to pass dozens of them on the way.
Jollibee has been an object of fascination for me during my trips up and down Highway 6 in my quest to discover the most original and distinct cuisine across Fort Bend County.
I have not shied away from mentioning my Chicago and Midwestern roots, and they will continue to influence my perceptions and thoughts as I do my best to convince you I have the bona fides of a respectable food critic.
Highway 6 can feel like a brick-and-mortar maze of retail shops and indistinct chain restaurants at times. Fortunately, there are a few places one can count on to transport you into a totally different environment, like the movies where a character pulls out a book from a stack of them on a …
Tucked in between Highway 59 and Highway 6 at Sugar Land’s Town Square, Japaneiro’s offers one of the best lunch deals I’ve seen west of the Fort Bend-Harris County line.
When you are the restaurant critic for a community newspaper with an ambition of exploring what are still relatively new surroundings during a global pandemic, you quickly get used to the solitude of dining alone. It’s drawn some parallels to my former life as a sportswriter on various high …
By STEFAN MODRICH firstname.lastname@example.org Many distinctive details are easily observable about Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar in Stafford — from abstract vintage light fixtures to a hybrid rustic modern interior look that combines culinary fusionism and adventure with a more laid-back, old-school vibe. Napkins are held in place with classy-looking pipe fittings, and tables are […]
By STEFAN MODRICH email@example.com In the movie business, “sequel” is perhaps one of the most polarizing words one can use. To a studio executive, the sequel represents a dream come true, but to some film snobs, a second act will forever pale in comparison to the original, forever remaining in its shadow. Having opened in […]
By STEFAN MODRICH firstname.lastname@example.org As I have argued previously in this space, aesthetics are a crucial component of the dining experience. Old Hickory Inn Barbecue has been a Houston-area institution since 1963. The Missouri City location has gathered a loyal following from generations of residents in nearby Quail Valley and beyond, in an idyllic location […]
By STEFAN MODRICH email@example.com While your annual office Christmas party or family gatherings may be much more limited this year, that’s no reason not to indulge in the tradition of baking cookies to celebrate the holiday season.
