Remember, Houston is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the US. As far as middle eastern cuisine is concerned, you can open the phone book and pick one. You'll be pleased. Al Basha, however, is quaint and full of flavor. They're in a town full of their family and strangers.

They treat the strangers like their family.

The Pappas Restaurants

Just a little history. The Pappas chain of restaurants stared with the original Pappas Seafood House. Over the last 15 years, the family has expanded to include some of the best American, Cajun, Mexican, and fusion cuisine in the city. This is a guaraneed home run.

Gumbo that doesn't look like a bowl of mud!

Yeah, this place rocks. There are a lot of cajun places in Houston, but this is close to the freeway, is family friendly, and you are guaranteed a good time. The music is fantastic too.

Houston has the largest Vietnamese-American community in the US. There are a few Saigon restaurants around, but they aren't exactly easy to find, they are an excellent slice of a unique experience.

Start looking around the North West side of town, along Antoine Dr. or W. 34th St. Make sure to check out the coffee.
