A few quick Houston food notes from the week:
I hit the lunch buffet at India’s on Richmond in the Galleria area this week (what was I THINKING?!). It was nasty, terribly watered down, tough Indian food (CLARIFICATION: I’m not sure it was even completely recognizable as Indian food). And the service was terrible. I’m probably one of the few people in Houston who’s ever left a buffet hungry. But I just couldn’t stomach that food. AVOID.
On the other hand, I had Indian food for dinner tonight at Shiva in the Village. That was some outstanding, spicy, rich Indian food, with very good service, and the price was pretty reasonable. I’m looking forward to trying more of their dishes.
Since my experience at Cafe Torturously Slow a few weeks ago, I’ve given the location on Kirby a few more tries — and the staff has been very quick and very friendly. And my salads have been top notch. So good for them.
And finally, the downtown Pappas BBQ still makes a fine burger. Damn fine. And a sickeningly rich cheesecake. MMMmmm!
