Houston Restaurant Week – Our Picks!

It’s that time of year again – Houston Restaurant Weeks! Although there are a few differences due to COVID-19, HRW is still providing diners with an opportunity to try new restaurants while also benefiting the Houston Food Bank. Spanning the entire month of August (and into September), Houston Restaurant Weeks is one of the largest annual fundraisers for the Houston Food Bank. It was originally founded by Cleverly Stone in 2003. For each meal purchased, restaurants will donate $1 to the Food Bank, which generates 3 meals for Houstonians.

The list of restaurants can sometimes look long and it can be hard to know where to start, so we want to share some of our team’s favorite restaurants!

Katie Day Favorites:

Harold’s: You have to try the KG’s Double Brined Chicken!

Kin Dee Thai: The Southern Style Green Curry is a must-try.

Locally Focused Coffee and Acai Bowl Truck, Houston, #movemetotx #NeighborhoodSpotlight

If you’re looking for an afternoon pick-me-up, then have we got the truck for you! This business focuses on coffee, tea, acai bowls and popsicles from Steel City Pops! For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we talk to Kyle Buthod of Citizens Truck to learn more about his business along with his products!

Citizens Truck is a new feature to Houston, having only really gotten its start in 2020. The truck itself came all the way from Detroit and was originally used for hauling farm equipment and heavy items. It was then converted into a food truck by a Michigan based church to serve food to the homeless. Eventually it ended up in an antique shop in La Grange until Kyle stumbled upon it and decided to convert it into the Citizens Truck. The truck has regular spots throughout the week where it is parked but is also available for rent or for catering various sized events.

For more information on Citizens Truck and to see where it will be in the upcoming week, you can visit them online at https://www.citizenstruck.com/

Quick and Convenient Drive Thru Only Coffee Shop, Galleria Area, #movemetotx #NeighborhoodSpotlight

One thing that is common to a lot of other states and cities throughout the US, but foreign to Houston is the idea of drive through only coffee shops. Our spotlight this week was determined to change that and familiarize Houstonians with the idea and the concept. For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we talk to Marshall Brown, the owner of Clutch City Coffee.

The idea for Clutch City Coffee came from a combination of inspiration points. The first off being that the owners had come from Alaska where drive through coffee shops are available on every street corner. Secondly, with all of the traffic and commuting in Houston, it really didn’t make sense to them that there weren’t drive through coffee shops lined up and down the streets. They took this inspiration and ran with it with one vision in mind: shop small, shop local, serve quality. They also use a specially calibrated espresso machine so that they can preserve consistency, texture, volume, and ready to drink temperatures. The idea is the customer can be in and out in under two minutes and continue on with their busy day.

To learn more about Clutch City Coffee as well as check out their menu, you can visit them online at https://www.clutchcitycoffeehtx.com/

Unique Dog Park Bar, Midtown, #NeighborhoodSpotlight #movemetotx

If you’ve got a dog, you know how hard it is to find a place where you can go and hang out and have a drink while also making sure that your dog has an enjoyable time. The owners of this week’s business saw that need and worked on creating a place that would meet it. For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we speak to founder of Barkley’s Dog Bar, Allen Siebeneicher, to learn more about his business.

Being located in Midtown, there was a large opportunity for a dog-centric place. More and more people, especially specifically in Midtown, have dogs. However, a very large percentage of them don’t have yards. So Barkley’s decided that they would become the yard for all of those people and those canines. They’ve also got an extensive menu of food and drinks for human and dog alike.

To find out more about Barkley’s, you can visit them online at their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Barkleys-Mid…

Creative Ice Cream Shop with In-House Made Products, Webster, #NeighborhoodSpotlight #movemetotx

For a fresh and premium ice cream experience in the Clear Lake area, look no further than this week’s spotlight business. For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we talk to Camille and Julian Haynes, the owners of Scoop Craft Creamery.

Both Julian and Camille started their careers out in vastly different fields from food, but they both had dreamed of starting a food and beverage business. As big travelers and foodies, it just made sense for them to open something like Scoop. Then this year, they finally opened their doors to the public. All their ice creams are made in house and the flavor creations are inspired by Julian and Camille’s travels, family recipes, and childhood recipes.

For more information on Scoop, you can find them online at https://www.scoophtx.com/

Laid Back Neighborhood Bar, Oak Forest, #NeighborhoodSpotlight #movemetotx

When you’re looking for a good drink with a laid back environment, there truly is no better place than a neighborhood bar. This week’s spotlight is the spot to be if you live in or around the Oak Forest area or you’re just looking for a relaxed spot to drink.. For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight join us as we talk to Brandee Boyle, one of the co-owners of Sassafras, to learn more about their business.

Sassafras was founded by bartenders from some other popular local spots: Big Star Bar and Grand Prize bar. They aim to be a neighborhood hangout and a place where you can get “fancy beer, cheap beer, above average wine, and tasty liquor.” It may come as a surprise but one of their most ordered cocktails is actually a sangria, of which they offer a red and a white option. It’s refreshing and perfect to sip on their expansive patio.

For more information on Sassafras, you can visit them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/sassafrashou…

Nationally Recognized Poke Restaurant, Midtown Houston, #NeighborhoodSpotlight #movemetotx

Poke has quickly become a favorite dish in Houston and although there are many places now that you can get it, not all poke is created equal. For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we talk to Head Chef Jerry Jan of Diced Poke and find out why their poke is a head above the rest.

Diced Poke was founded back in 2018 right here in Houston, Texas. Back in 2014, Chef Jan had gone on a trip to Hawaii and was able to really experience and study true authentic Hawaiian Poke. This trip was what allowed him to bring the most authentic poke taste and flavors to Houston as well as what sets Diced Poke apart from the other poke spots within Houston. Chef Jan’s dedication to great food was so apparent in fact that it earned Diced Poke a spot on Yelp’s 2019 Top 100 Places to Eat in America List. To learn more about Diced Poke and to check out their menu, you can visit them online at https://dicedpoke.com/

Korean Fried Chicken with a Unique Twist #NeighborhoodSpotlight #movemetotx

Houston has a lot of Asian cuisine but one culture that doesn’t have as much representation as the others is Korean. This restaurant is determined to help change that. For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we talk to Jason Cho, the owner of Dak & Bop.

Dak & Bop originally opened back in 2014 with a different location over in the Houston Museum district. Since then, that location has closed and a new concept within the Dak & Bop brand was born and is housed on West 18th Street in the Houston Heights. The idea behind this location is a chef driven menu with an elevated gastropub feel. They take traditional dishes and give them a unique spin with their ingredients and presentation. There is also a distinct Italian influence on their menu at this particular location.

For more information on Dak & Bop and to check out their menu, you can visit them online at https://www.dakandbop.com/
