Yia Yia Mary’s

After heading out to La Fuente Winery this weekend, we decided that we all really needed something to eat. Over the course of our wine tasting, a friend was raving about Yia Yia Mary’s. His descriptions of their dishes were enough to have me start craving things I had never tasted. Yia Yia Mary’s, which I can’t stop calling Yia… Read more →

Yia Yia Mary’s Sunset Bellini

Yia Yia Mary’s was but one stop in a day best described as a tour de hedonism, but it was certainly the high point where flavor was concerned. The food order was an open-and-shut decision in favor of the appetizer sampler and the seafood clay pot, but the Sunset Bellini caught my eye from the drink menu tab. Perhaps it was because our… Read more →

Morningside Thai

Ah, Morningside Thai. It’s been the old standby for about four years now (well, for me at least). My sister discovered it in her first year of medical school and has been going there regularly since 2005. She passed on this little jewel to me when I started attending college in Houston. Since we don’t see each other much (even though we… Read more →

Bernie’s Burger Bus

A lot of times when a person think’s about eating from a food truck (or bus in this case), negative thoughts come to their mind. I have a suggestion for you… Take all of the negative thoughts, misconceptions, and preconceived notions that you have about food trucks and chunk them into the nearest garbage can. Most food trucks today are… Read more →

Steak ‘n Shake

Living in Texas, especially Houston, burger-frenzy is always in the air. I’ve tried many great burgers and every burger has a special place in my heart. 5 Guys, Whataburger, Tornado Burger, the burger at Mockingbird Bistro, Mooya and many other places. But today, I tried Steak ‘n Shake for the first time.  I woke up late this morning and heard… Read more →

Max’s Wine Dive

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. Hands down. Probably because I only eat breakfast about twice a week and that makes any breakfast day times more special. Anyway, last week, my sister and I went on the hunt for a place to brunch. We thought, “Maybe IHOP. Or Waffle House. Or Denny’s.” But we wanted something new. And… Read more →

Crescent City Beignets

Before our super awesome photo shoot last weekend, we decided to treat ourselves to some delicious beignets at Crescent City Beignets. It’s located on Westheimer, between Kirby and Buffalo Speedway and across from Lamar High School. The inside is clean and cozy, a nice place to start a Saturday afternoon. I ordered three beignets with caramel sauce and café au… Read more →

Gigi’s

Wow, it’s been forever since I’ve posted. Slacker, I know. I guess I’ll start with some ‘happenings’ in the live of the FMs. We’re making t-shirts, first for ourselves and then for everyone else. If you want in, let us know. We’re also probably, maybe, kinda going to do a bit of a photo session on Saturday. I’m being a… Read more →
