The Full Menu: Houston’s Best Comfort Food For Trying Times

Food writers share their favorite places for comfort food as we all try to survive 2020.

If the phrase "eating your feelings" resonates particularly strongly with you this year, we're right there with ‘ya.

As we look to turn the corner on a stressful election cycle and hobble along to the end of a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad pandemic-laden year, our group of foodies stands ready to share some of the local Houston fare they find delicious – and comforting – during trying times in this month's installment of The Full Menu.

In the audio above, we hear from Eric Sandler of CultureMap Houston, Felice Sloan of the Swanky Maven lifestyle blog, and David Leftwich of Houston Food Finder.
