Wok the Line

Chow, Baby
I was recently complaining to a friend about how there are precious few great, fast, cheap Chinese food places in town. Sure, you can go to any of the pervasive chains and have a decent meal, or you could take a trip to Haltom ...

La Perla Negra: Culinary All-Star

Chow, Baby
I can’t pretend to be unbiased about Le Perla Negra (910 Houston St.), a new Latin eatery in the downtown space formerly occupied by Zambrano Wine Cellar & Bistro. The ownership group reads like an all-star team of area r...

World of Beer — Truly

In addition to 500 bottles, this new West 7th gastropub serves up some superb brew-infused grub.
Edward Brown
As the craft beer movement barrels on, it’s not just the liquid goodness that’s getting a makeover locally. The fare at gastropubs is also transforming. As the recently opened World of Beer proves, area diners are no longer...

HoYA Korean Kitchen is a tasty, inexpensive entrée into this scarce cuisine.
Laurie Barker James
HoYA Korean Kitchen sits in the Sundance Square space that once housed a chain shop where hurried diners could customize their subs with veggies and condiments. A similar concept applies to Korean food. HoYA’s menu mostly rev...

Winslow’s: A New Breed

Chow, Baby
Why do people think it’s funny to tease dogs? On a recent cool weekday afternoon, I left my pup in the car as I stopped to pick up some grub at Temaki Sushi (1504 W. Magnolia Ave.). I could hear her yip at every passerby on M...

Aim that Cannon

Chow, Baby
Dear Group of Twentysomethings at Cannon Chinese Kitchen, I’m sure going somewhere besides Chili’s or Sherlock’s was a fun change of pace for the six of you. But how to behave at a nice restaurant is very different from a...

Kin Kin: Thai One On

Unlike Bite City Grill, Chef Eddy’s new destination specializes in one specific cuisine.
Laurie Barker James
Like Jon Bonnell and Tim Love before him, Chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin is branching out. Although his brand-new restaurant is less than a mile across West 7th Street from his barely year-old place, he doesn’t seem to be in dang...
