About the Monsters


Hey, Thanks for checking out our website! Our names are Dominique and Priya; we are just two college students and friends that love to eat. We came up with the idea to do a blog one day while we were grabbing a bite to eat after class. Whenever we wanted to hang out, it always revolved around food. So, we thought “Why not share this with other people?” We LOVE the food scene that Houston has to offer (this city rocks!) While our focus is on what is happening in Houston, we will also cover points of interest from other cities as well. Food has the ability to unite and bring people together; it is a great bridge to meeting new people. We hope to offer informative, fun, and interesting opinions that anyone can relate to. We will check out the smallest hole-in-the-wall to some of the top fine dining restaurants in the city and share them all with YOU. 

Priya: My name is Priya Venkatarajan. I’m a senior at UH and a lover of FOOD. I’m majoring in Sociology, Religion and I’m pre-med. In my free time, I’m usually eating. I like long walks on the beach and stargazing. I haven’t done either (in a romantic setting), but I’m sure it’d be cool. I digress; this is a food blog, not my dating resume. Cuisine wise, I love Italian, Indian, Thai and Mexican. I love to cook so occasionally you’ll see me post about things I’ve cooked up myself. I’d highly recommend coming out with us on one of our rampages because I’m kind of awesome (Dominque is pretty awesome too).

Dominique: My name is Dominique McGhee. I am about to enter my 4th year at the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston (Go Coogs!). Food has always been a big part of my family, but my love and respect for it grew as I got older. I like hanging out with my friends, trying new things, eating/cooking, and meeting new people. I think that everyone should be open to new experiences, especially when it comes to food. I would die for some great Italian or Asian food any day. If you want to know more, feel free to ask. I hope you enjoy our site. :-)

Everyone has different things that they love. Some love shoes, clothes, baseball cards, and things of the like… WE LOVE FOOD and we want to share that with you! Join us on our adventures through Houston as we seek out great places to eat, relax, grab a drink, or take a date. If you have suggestions on places we should go, please feel free to email us; you can even join us for a meal. Once again, Thank You for checking out our site and we hope you enjoy.
