Calling all burger-obsessed Houstonians and fans of the Trill OG: The day you have been waiting for has arrived. Trill Burgers is ready to serve.

Houston hip-hop legend Bun B and his partners will open the doors on the brick and mortar location of their smash hit smash burger concept at 11 am Wednesday, June 7.

Located in the former James Coney Island at 3607 S Shepherd Dr., the restaurant will be open daily from 11 am until 9 pm for at least the next six months while it searches for a more permanent home.

The opening comes after a celebrity-studded, invite-only preview that drew the likes of Slim Thug, Andre Johnson, and Willie D.

Announced last year, opening this new location represents the next step in Trill Burgers’ evolution. Introduced at the 2021 CultureMap Tastemaker Awards, Trill Burgers has operated as a pop-up, served at events such as the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo and the Coachella festival, and been a recent addition to both Shell Energy Stadium and NRG Stadium. Despite all that success, it has not been available for lunch and dinner daily — until now.

“It’s been a dream for us, and it’s actually coming true,” Bun B said in a statement. “It’s been our sole goal to open up an establishment where we can serve you guys Trill Burgers consistently at a high level on a daily basis. And now we’re ready to do it. We are now officially open for business, ready to serve you.”

The restaurant will serve an expanded version of the core Trill Burgers menu. That starts with the OG Burger (two smashed patties that are topped with Trill Sauce, pickles, caramelized onions, and American cheese and served on a potato bun) as well as a Vegan OG Burger that’s topped with vegan cheese and vegan mayonnaise.

Operating out of a permanent kitchen will allow Trill Burgers to expand its menu with both a triple-patty cheeseburger — dubbed the Triple OG — and a single patty that will be called the Baby G (triple and single vegan burgers will also be available). Chef-partners Mike Pham and Fernando Valladares plan to introduce additional menu items in the weeks to come, according to a release. Pair them with seasoned fries and a cold Dr Pepper — the Texas-loved soda brand will be the restaurant’s exclusive fountain drink provider.

As anyone who has stood in line at a Trill Burgers pop-up or at its Rodeo stand knows, demand will likely be intense. While it wouldn’t be surprising to see a line out the door, the restaurant is doing a number of things to expedite the experience. First, it will only accept in-person orders for both dine-in and to-go.

The location’s drive-thru will remain closed for now, and it will not accept orders via third party delivery apps. In addition, it will be cashless.

“I’ve been lucky to open more than a dozen fast-casual concepts, and nothing surpasses the love I have seen for Trill Burgers,” co-founder Andy Nguyen said. “When Bun, Nick Scurfield, and I first launched this concept almost two years ago, we knew we had something special on our hands. Now it’s time to take it to the next level.”

While some of the demand stems from Bun’s celebrity — he led sold out concerts at RodeoHouston each of the past two years, has appeared on some of rap music's most legendary tracks, and has 1.3 million followers on Instagram — Trill Burgers has earned raves for serving a very tasty burger. Last year, Good Morning America named it America’s “Ultimate Burger Spot.” Earlier this year, a panel of media judges recognized it with a Gold Buckle Foodie Award at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. Trill Burgers earned 2023 CultureMap Tastemaker Award nominations for both Best Pop-Up/Start-Up and Best Burger.

Bun addressed that issue of making sure the burgers taste good on a 2022 episode of CultureMap's "What's Eric Eating" podcast.

"You can see it in every testimonial that I have [posted to social media], and these are genuine testimonials. Someone like Action Bronson, who is not only a connoisseur but a chef himself, would be more than confident enough to tell me if my burger is not good. That he said, 'good job' is a glowing review," Bun said. "I would want to know if my burger is trash. I would need to know. Sometimes you can be too close to these things."

Thousands of Houstonians will affirm that the burger is definitely not trash. Beginning today, many thousands more will have the opportunity to experience it for themselves.

River Oaks-area Japanese restaurant set to shutter after 4-year run

sayonara shun

A popular Houston Japanese restaurant will soon serve its last meal. Shun Japanese Kitchen will close its doors on Saturday, June 10.

Chef Naoki Yoshida opened Shun in October 2018 to serve his Texas-influenced take on traditional Japanese cuisine such as lamb barbacoa gyoza and smoked miso baby back ribs. Yoshida is a second generation restaurateur, as his family owns staple Montrose sushi spot Nippon.

Over time, the restaurant became known for a number of initiatives, including serving Japanese-style soufflé pancakes, launching the Hako Bento Box Company ghost kitchen, and hosting a Christmas Day fried chicken dinner that paid homage to Japan’s love for KFC. Yoshida also created events such as the Tokyo Night Festival and Tokyo X to celebrate Japanese culture.

"We are very thankful for all the support over the last five years," Yoshida said in a statement. "Although I am saddened to close this chapter of Shun Japanese Kitchen, I am excited to open another chapter for the future. We have some thrilling events and concepts planned in the future with the same goal to continue promoting Japanese culture in Houston."

Those “thrilling events” start with the Tokyo X festival, which will be held at NRG Center on June 17-18. The festival will feature more than 200 vendors, a Japanese car show, a $1,000 cosplay contest, martial arts demonstrations, and more.

After the festival, the chef plans to travel to research his next restaurant, described as the first Japanese-owned omakase restaurant in Houston. It’s expected to open in the fall of 2024.

Talented Houstonian wins James Beard Award for Best Chef: Texas

Houston's newest Beard winner

A Houston chef has won one of the food world’s most prestigious awards. On Monday, June 5, the James Beard Foundation awarded Best Chef: Texas to Street to Kitchen chef Benchawan Jabthong Painter.

Considered the Oscars of the food world, the awards recognize chefs and other culinary professionals in a wide range of categories ranging from Outstanding Chef to Best New Restaurant. Winners are selected by the foundation’s Awards Committee that is made up of media members, former winners, and others. See the full list of winners here.

Painter — known as “Chef G” to friends and admirers — is the first Houston chef to win Best Chef: Texas, which was created after the 2019 James Beard Awards. She joins Robert Del Grande, Chris Shepherd, Justin Yu, and Hugo Ortega as the only Houston chefs to win a regional award in the foundation’s annual Restaurant and Chef Awards. Last night’s win means back-to-back victories for Houstonians in the awards, following Southern-inspired cocktail bar Julep’s win last year for Outstanding Bar Program.

“I always dreamed it would happen,” Painter told CultureMap shortly after her win. “It proves to me I can do it. I’m new to this country and new to this business, but if you have a belief, you can do it.”

The story of Street to Kitchen’s rise in the food world almost reads like a Hollywood movie. After growing up in Thailand where she learned to cook Thai food from her family, chef Painter and her husband Graham moved to America eight years ago. She worked for James Beard Award winner Justin Yu at Theodore Rex before starting Street to Kitchen to serve the “unapologetically Thai” flavors she couldn’t find at restaurants in Houston.

The Painters launched Street to Kitchen with a series of pop-ups and a weekly stand at the Urban Harvest farmers market. They leased a former fried chicken restaurant next to an East End gas station — far away from a prime location in a neighborhood like Montrose or the Heights — to bring Street to Kitchen to life.

Despite opening at the height of the pandemic in the summer 2020, people immediately began to discover Street to Kitchen. It won both Restaurant of the Year and Rising Star Chef of the Year in the 2022 CultureMap Tastemaker Awards, paving the way for this year’s James Beard Award nomination.

“After I won, I feel like this is crazy,” she added. “No matter how hard I was working toward this day, it was worth it. I’m so proud to bring it to Houston. I’m really proud.”

While the night belonged to Chef G, it ended in disappointment for Houston’s two other finalists. Neither Nancy’s Hustle nor Tatemó took home the awards for Outstanding Wine and Other Beverages Program and Best New Restaurant, respectively. Overall, Texas bars and restaurants earned 13 finalist nominations, but only Street to Kitchen won its category.

While the atmosphere throughout Monday night’s ceremony was jubilant, controversy had erupted over the past few weeks over the James Beard Foundation’s decision to disqualify Best Chef: South finalist Timothy Hontzas after it investigated anonymous complaints about his behavior towards staff and customers. Judges, including New Orleans-based food writer Todd Price and chef Vishwesh Bhatt, publicly resigned from the Restaurant and Chef Awards committee to protest the decision. In a lengthy article, the New York Timesreported that the foundation also investigated Best Chef: Southeast finalist Sam Fore, but ultimately allowed her to remain a nominee.

2 star chefs roll out sushi spot with fresh-from-Tokyo goods along with intimate new bar in buzzy Buffalo Bayou hub

sushi in the park

Two of Houston’s most prolific sushi chefs have signed on to an eagerly anticipated mixed-use development. Chefs Patrick Pham and Daniel Lee, the owners of 2023 CultureMap Tastemaker Awards Best New Restaurant winner Aiko, will open Doko, a new sushi restaurant, and Bar Doko, an intimate cocktail bar, in the Autry Park mixed-use development.

Expected to open this fall on the ground floor of the Hanover Parkview mid-rise, Doko will serve a menu of sushi that utilizes fish flown in from Tokyo’s Toyosu Market. The 1,900-square-foot restaurant is expected to seat 50 in its main dining room and 12 at its bar.

Tiny Bar Doko will occupy just 600-square-feet in a space that’s adjacent to Doko. The group’s first bar, it will serve Japanese-inspired cocktails. Houston architecture firm JT ARC Studio and Los Angeles’ JAW Collective will create the designs for both establishments

Taken together, Doko and Bar Doko are the latest projects from Duckstache Hospitality, the company that chefs Pham and Lee established with business partners Andrew Lin and C.J. Short. In addition to the aforementioned Aiko, they also operate Kokoro in downtown’s Bravery Chef Hall, Himari at the Stomping Grounds in Garden Oaks, and two outposts of hand roll concept Handies Douzo.

“Autry Park is an amazing opportunity to continue to showcase our culinary creativity in a unique setting,” Lin said in a statement. “We look to evolve our offering in Japanese cuisine to provide our guests with memorable dining experiences.”

Doko and Bar Doko will join a number of new restaurants at Autry Park. They include two new concepts from Berg Hospitality, Annabelle Brasserie and Turner’s Cut; two restaurants from MF Sushi chef-owner Chris Kinjo, MF Lobster and Ceviche and Annam, a Vietnamese restaurant; Auden, a vegetable-forward, globally inspired restaurant; a second location of pilates studio and coffee shop Duo; and the first Houston location of Austin favorite Lick Honest Ice Creams.

Developed by local real estate firms Lionstone Investments and Hanover Company, Autry Park occupies 14 acres on the western edge of Buffalo Bayou Park. The project's three-phase masterplan includes five towers encompassing 1,450 residential units, 350,000 square feet of Class A office space, and 100,000 square feet of retail, according to press materials.

Aggie favorite chicken fingers spot claims 3rd Houston-area outpost — and first inside the Loop

finally inside the loop

An Aggieland favorite is coming to the River Oaks area. Layne’s Chicken Fingers has claimed the former KFC location at 2359 S Shepherd Dr.

Expected to open in late 2023, it will offer both dine-in and drive-thru service. The new restaurant will be the College Station-based establishment’s third Houston-area outpost, joining a Katy location that opened in 2021 and a Garden Oaks location that opened in February.

The restaurant will serve Layne's tightly focused menu of chicken tenders, chicken tender sandwiches, Texas toast, crinkle-cut fries, potato salad, and milkshakes. All of its self-described "Soon to be Famous" chicken fingers are cut by hand, marinated, and breaded on-site. They can be paired with one of four dipping sauces: Layne’s Secret Sauce, described as "the perfect blend of tangy, spicy, zesty, and peppery flavors;" buttermilk ranch; barbecue; and honey mustard.

“After a wildly successful opening in the Heights, it only made sense to expand to the eclectic Montrose neighborhood,” Layne’s partner Matt O’Reilly said in a statement. “This is our first location inside the loop and we are so excited to see our restaurant expand to even more chicken lovers.”

Layne’s comes to Houston via Texas A&M alum Masroor Fatany, who also owns seven locations of The Halal Guys across the Houston area.

“This location will mark a major step for the Layne’s legacy,” Fatany added. “The demand, which was already high, has only grown ever since we opened our Heights location, so bringing Layne’s to Montrose is going to allow us to bring our delicious chicken to customers throughout Houston.”

Meet the gifted chef showcasing authentic, home-grown Greek fare to Houston, plus hottest food news

What's Eric Eating Episode 285

On this week's episode of "What's Eric Eating," chef Mary Cuclis joins CultureMap food editor Eric Sandler to discuss Kriti Kitchen. The Pondicheri veteran opened the family-friendly Greek restaurant in January.

The conversation begins with Cuclis explaining how she entered the world of professional cooking. Prior to opening Kriti Kitchen, she trained at Bo Innovation, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Hong Kong, and spent 10 years working for James Beard Award finalist Anita Jaisinghani at Pondicheri, the acclaimed, Indian-inspired restaurant in Upper Kirby.

At Kriti Kitchen, she honors her Greek heritage by serving dishes she's experienced when visiting family in Greece. Sandler asks her about the ways in which her cooking is different from Houston's other Greek restaurants.

"A lot of the Greek food I found in Houston was very delicious but very much street food. The kind of food I'm wanting to portray is more homestyle, things that I eat with my relatives," she says.

"For example, when you go to a taverna in Crete, a lot of times it's a couple running the whole thing. They invite you back into the kitchen to smell the stew. It's stewed meat and a lot of fresh vegetables with beans and lentils. I don't think too many people see that side of Greek food. I wanted to share a little bit of what I see with my family and what we eat when we're there."

Listen to the full interview to hear Cuclis explain why Kriti Kitchen offers both dine-in options during the day as well as heat-and-serve options that customers can pick up for dinner. She also discusses her goals for the future.

Prior to the interview, Sandler and co-host Rebecca Masson, chef-owner of Fluff Bake Bar, discuss the news of the week. Their topics include: Nobie's owners Martin and Sara Stayer's plans to open a new pizzeria; Roswell's Saloon opening in Montrose; New York City's Lady M establishing a permanent presence in the Galleria; and Masson's experiences during Austin's Hot Luck food festival.

In the restaurants of the week segment, Sandler and Masson share their thoughts about meals at two new Italian restaurants. First, they recount the highs and lows of a meal at Triola's Kitchen. Then, they share first impressions of Bari Ristorante, a new restaurant in River Oaks District that serves classic Italian dishes.

Summer sports
Watch a Frisco RoughRiders baseball game like never before from the in-stadium lazy river, or tour The Star, the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters, to take in some NFL history and see where the pros call home.

While you are visiting The Star, you’ll find shopping and dining, with everything from sushi at Sushi Marquee to sweets at Cow Tipping Creamery.

Pro tip: if you love America’s team, plan your trip in August to get a pre-season glimpse of the Dallas Cowboys at training camp, open to the public at Ford Center.

PGA Frisco awaits with its two championship courses, a short course and putting green that’s lit at night, an entertainment district full of shops and dining options for the whole family, and the newly opened Omni PGA Frisco Resort, where it’s easy to cool off in one of the four pools.

Frisco offers golfers a range of play options, including The Fazio Course at The Westin Stonebriar Golf Resort & Spa, Frisco Lakes Golf Club, Plantation Golf Club, The Trails of Frisco, and the unique indoor option of the Swing Suite Lounge by Topgolf.

Cool tunes
Now that Frisco is officially designated a Music Friendly Texas Community, there’s plenty of live music to enjoy over the summer.

Friday nights in June are for listening to live music at Frisco Square during the free outdoor Summer Concert Series on the lawn in front of City Hall.

Visitors can get into the groove anytime at one of Frisco’s many venues that host live music and entertainment throughout the summer.

Happy 4th
Frisco celebrates the Fourth of July big, too. Mark your calendar for two major events with food, music, games, and fireworks: Frisco Freedom Fest and The Independence Day Celebration at Omni PGA Frisco Resort.

Kiddo time
Escape the Texas heat with a visit to Frisco’s unbelievable new library. The bright, open design has spaces to inspire, create, innovate, and collaborate, plus you can say hi to Rexy, the 20-foot-tall T-Rex dinosaur skeleton.

Check out the high-tech Makerspace and active learning spaces like Tiny Town, for kids up to age 5, and Kid’s Club, for kinder through 5th graders.

Cool down poolside in Frisco. With rooftop views, cabanas, adults-only, splash pools, and the Frisco Water Park, families, couples, and friends can all find the right place to cool down during your visit.

Houston-based cannabis company acquires favorite local brewery to launch full line of infused adult beverages

a budding relationship

A Houston-based cannabis company has formalized its ongoing relationship with one of the city’s most popular breweries. Bayou City Hemp Company announced that it has purchased 8th Wonder Brewery, Distillery, and Cannabis.

The acquisition deepens a relationship that dates back to 2021, when 8th Wonder and Bayou City Hemp partnered to create Wonder Water, a non-alcoholic beverage available with either CBD or Delta-8 that became the top-selling to-go product at 8th Wonder.

Going forward, the combined company aims to capture a healthy share of the Texas market for adult beverages by offering a full lineup of beer, spirits, and cannabis-infused drinks.

Bayou City Hemp and 8th Wonder have teamed up.

“Our commitment to provide quality products and trusted brands to consumers is strengthened with 8th Wonder, who has been a Texas staple in craft beer and spirits for over a decade,” Bayou City CEO Benjamin Meggs said in a statement. “We look forward to growing market share and distribution to the entire portfolio of products through expanded resources and combined expertise. This is not merely an acquisition; it is a bold declaration of our intent to lead and innovate in the heart of Texas.”

The combined company aims to utilize 8th Wonder’s existing distribution channels to get its products onto as many store shelves as possible, including stores such as H-E-B, Walmart, Kroger, Total Wine, and Spec’s. A capital infusion from Bayou City Hemp will focus on marketing and promotion, helping the company to increase excitement for and awareness of the brand.

“Significant capital will be infused to build out the necessary infrastructure,” Meggs said in response to CultureMap’s request for comment about the combined company’s plans. “This infrastructure will enhance our operational capabilities positioning Bayou City to enter new emerging beverage categories such as Cannabis, NA Beer, and RTD Spirits [ready-to-drink] among others.”

While all those changes will mostly happen behind the scenes, customers will notice upgrades to the current 8th Wonder brewery, taproom, distillery, and beer garden to match the brand’s new look.

Founded in 2011, 8th Wonder Brewery evolved out of the Eatsie Boys food truck. Branded with a nostalgic affection for Houston, it developed a following for beers such as Dome Faux’m (cream ale), Rocket Fuel (Vietnamese coffee porter), and Haterade (gose). Over time, it expanded into spirts with a distillery and cannabis with a dispensary.

Bayou City Hemp Company opened in 2019. It produces edibles, vapes, additives, and seltzers that aim to meet the growing consumer demand for cannabis-based products.

Going forward, Meggs will remain in his role as CEO where he’ll be joined by Bayou City Hemp’s existing chief business officer, Jeromy Sherman, CFO Karen Trotter, chief revenue officer Joel Canada, and chief innovation officer Stephen Horton. 8th Wonder co-founder Ryan Soroka will serve as chief brand and marketing officer, while 8th Wonder co-founder and brewmaster Aaron Corsi will become COO.

“From day one at 8th Wonder, our goal was to build a hundred-year company,” Soroka added. “This transaction will provide the leadership and resources needed to achieve that dream. We look forward to a refreshed and revitalized 8th Wonder as we move forward with Bayou City Hemp into the exciting future of the beverage and cannabis industries.”
