Beyond the scores of hungry Houstonians, Houston’s culinary scene continues to attract attention, accolades, and buzzworthy press from all over. Last year, the beloved cooking program Top Chef selected Space City as the backdrop for its 19th season for the rich heritage, vibrancy, and diversity of the culinary scene in Houston.
Recently, established publication Travel and Leisure released their list of the top 10 Best Food Cities in the U.S. According to the publication, Houston is the fifth best food city in America.
“As America’s most diverse city, it’s no surprise that Houston made our list of the best U.S. cities for foodies,” the publication stated in its article.
“The Bayou City offers something for every palate. As such, options abound, from Viet-Cajun fusion at Crawfish & Noodles to Southeast Asian-Latin American cuisine at Hawker Street Food Bar, which can be found at Post Market.”
The article goes on to highlight other restaurants located at The Post, including international eateries ChópnBlok and East Side King.
“We’d also be remiss not to highlight Houston’s burgeoning food truck scene, including the award-winning Coreanos, where diners can feast on Korean-Mexican fusion like Korean barbeque tacos.”
On Travel and Leisure’s list of the Top 10 Best Food Cities in America, Houston followed only four cities. At number on the list is New York City, followed by New Orleans, Chicago, and San Francisco.
While it’s nice to have the validation of an outside publication, we’d much rather experience the greatness of Houston’s food scene firsthand. Check out a few of our recent roundups to get you in the mood for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner:
