The Dining Capital of the United States
Having an office in Houston we though our clients might want a couple good tips and a little tad bit of history on the cuisine in this neck of the woods. Enjoy!
USA Today referred to Houston, Texas as the “dining capital of the U.S.” Houstonians eat out more often than residents of any other U.S. cities. Houston restaurants are also known to be inexpensive and convenient. A major role in Houston’s eccentric food scene is the city’s ethnic diversity.
Tex-Mex cuisine is very popular in Houston. Many Mexican restaurants are influenced by the Texas culture. Rob Walsh of the Houston Press says, “the immigrant flow is what keeps the ‘Mex’ is ‘Tex-Mex’.” The cooking methods in the city are highly influenced by the recent immigrants.
