New York Post writer calls Houston "brutally ugly," but he loves the food andculture
I just love when Yankees admit they like Houston, despite their best efforts not to.
Today's entry in the "Houston: It's kinda cool after all" column comes from The New York Post.
"To me Houston has always been nothing more than New Orleans if New Orleans took a bath, put on a suit — a rather ill-fitting one — and got a job," writes David Landsel before admitting that being such a square means Houston also has money to throw down on some serious — and seriously good — food and drinks.
But his favorite Houston memories are of the food, which includes the queso at El Real ("one of too many . . . consumed in a 24-hour period") and trips to Underbelly, Down House, Revival Market, El Gran Malo and maybe to a food truck serving lobster (he's not sure).
All of which raises some interesting questions: Is Landsel's "brutally ugly" tag fair? Is there such a thing as too much queso? Is there a food truck in town that serves lobster, and if so where can I find it?
