The Full Menu: The Best Restaurants In West Houston

Local food writers discuss their favorite places to eat in West Houston — however they define that.

Greater Houston is a huge region comprised of a number of unique neighborhoods and suburbs. And each of those areas offer a plethora of dining options for anyone wanting to sample their diverse cuisine.

One such part of the city is West Houston. And that’s the focus of this edition of our monthly food segment, The Full Menu.

Of course, not everyone’s definition of what should constitute West Houston will be the same — something our group of local food writers spent plenty of time debating this month.

But, for the purposes of this session, we’re defining West Houston as neighborhoods like Spring Branch, Memorial, and the Energy Corridor.

So, in the audio above, listen toEric Sandlerof CultureMap Houston,Felice Sloan of the Swanky Maven lifestyle blog, andDavid Leftwich of Houston Food Finder talk it over. And you can check out their list of recommendations below.
