Mediterranean Cuisine


If you want to sit down and enjoy a great Mediterranean meal in Houston, we can’t think of a place that’s any better than March. Always exploring new ways to take their unique ingredients and turn them into a delicacy that’s even more spectacular than what’s already on the menu, the folks at March will make your dining experience one to remember. Under the guidance of chef Felipe Riccio, the March staff brings Mediterranean food to a whole new level of fine dining. As for what to eat, we suggest March’s Lamb Consomme and Tuna Ventresca.

Portuguese Cuisine


If you haven’t had much Portuguese cuisine in your lifetime, you don’t know what you’ve been missing. To find out, make plans to visit Oporto. Considered one of the best international restaurants in Houston, it even features a kid’s menu. But for us adults, we suggest trying the Portuguese Power Lunch, which offers three courses for only $25. If you want to try this, we recommend the Caldo Verde, which is a classic potato and kale soup, followed by Portuguese Squid Fried Rice and a helping of house-made gelato.

Ethiopian Cuisine

Blue Nile

When we first heard of the Blue Nile, we had to give this Ethiopian restaurant a try right away, and we are glad we did. In Houston since 1994, the Blue Nile has lots of great selections, some of which include Fitfit, Yemissir Wot, Chicken Tibs, and Shrimp Wot. For dessert, we suggest the delightful Pistachio Cake.

German Cuisine

King’s Bierhaus

Finally, King’s Bierhaus brings the very best German food and beverages to us here in Houston. Growing in popularity by the day, we suggest trying The Texan, a gourmet hotdog filled with guacamole, pickled jalapenos, and much more. Also, have a BBQ Schnitzel along the way, which has pulled pork, mashed potatoes, and melted cheese among its ingredients.
