Houston, Texas has now become my new home away from home. Living in the city was incredible, and I will recap my favorites from the city in the coming weeks. Before I share those, I will be posting an installment of recent travel experiences I want to share. Here’s what is to come: the weekend my family visited Houston, a trip to Charleston, South Carolina, a restaurant from Tampa, Florida and my first time in Cabo. First up: H-Town!
My dad, step-mom, step-sister and I ate our way through the city, stopping along the way for happy hour and lots of photos. The Biscuit Paint Wall is the perfect spot for photo shoots, just down the street from one of my favorite coffee shops called Common Bond. I ordered the incredible breakfast sandwich pictured below that was oozing with egg yolk, cheese and guacamole on their signature fresh-baked bread. The favorite cocktails of the weekend were the Hibiscus Royal from benjy’s (champagne + hibiscus) and a classic martini from the St. Regis Hotel where the live band in the Remington Bar is on fire on Saturday nights. Benjy’s also has some of my favorite happy hour appetizers like the salmon sashimi (featured below), the crispy tofu and the spicy crispy chicken with blue cheese. It was so wonderful sharing a city that I have grown to love so much with my family. While we accomplished a lot, I certainly have things left on the bucket list for our return!
Love food. Love self. Love life.
