My father recently passed and one of the greatest gifts he ever taught me was to eat well. Whether it was a simple pot of beans, or the finest steak, my dad always stressed that good food was one of the many secrets to living a great life. Dad would by a $5 pair of sneakers for a $15 steak. He had his priorities straight. Food before anything else. The Central Market in Houston was one of my dad’s favorite grocery stores. It has just about anything a person could want in the way of food. Rarely do people sit around a table today and enjoy a great meal as a family. It is a dying tradition that in my opinion is causing many of us to die. Family meals and the bonding and sharing that go along with them are vitally important. I decided to shoot a few photos to share of my dad’s favorite grocery store. The purpose is two fold. One to is to promote this great place Central Market and two to stress the importance of great eating and spending time together as a family. If you do not know how to cook, no worries, their are plenty of YouTube videos and cookbooks. Do learn how to cook and make food a part of the great times of life.

Garson Persian Restaurant offers a variety of awesome dishes and some fine belly dancing too. Do to a lack of time I will not write much about them, but I do believe the photos speak for themselves. The food is delicious and fresh as can be! For more information visit them here http://www.garsonhouston.com/

Peru Express Cafe in Houston, Texas offers some of the tastiest food I have eaten. It was my first experience with Peruvian food and I just loved all the dishes, especially the lightly-breaded seafood platter. The salsas were quiet different than what I am used to, but bursting with flavor. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere casual, but best of all is the wonderful service.

In Houston you can find just about any ethnic food you want if you take a little time to browse. One of my favorites is Japanese food. The Seiwa Market located at 1801 S. Dairy Ashford has everything Japanese. If you are a Japanese food fan or curious take a trip and buy a few things. You’ll never know if you like it, until you try it. Here are a few photos from the market that will give you the vibe. I really LOVED the Japanese Ice Cream. I hope you check it out!

When I look back on the many great things in life, I always reflect on meals and the good times that are shared around them. There are so many cultures and things to eat that I sometimes wonder,” How does a person eat the same thing everyday?” I rarely eat the same dish in a year because there are so many tasty things to eat. I can attest that I have eaten with people of other religions and political philosophies. We do not agree on anything regarding those topics, but when we sit down to eat awesome food, there is nothing but smiles. God gives us food as a blessing for our hearts, mind, body, and soul. Some want to fight and wage war, I want to eat and enjoy the many great people and things in life. It is much easier to smile than frown. For those who share the same vision. Thank you for the joy you spread around the world. Here are a few of the meals I cooked this year that brought many smiles. If some of them puzzle you? Message me and I will tell you what they are or share a recipe. Bon Appetite!

Torchy’s Taco’s runs with a motto of “Damn Good.” Well, I finally got around to trying them out. Their motto lives up to it’s name. I had a great experience with service and the quality of food. If you love a BIG fat taco like me, then you got to try em’! Oh, and the chorizo queso is legit. Pass the chips!

I recently experienced the fine tastes of Malaysian cuisine in the Houston Galleria area. I had nothing less than an excellent experience at Satay Malaysian Restaurant. The service and food were outstanding. Here are a few photos of the wonderful food I enjoyed.

Indian food is absolutely delicious! With Indian food you can quickly learn you do not need meat to have an awesome meal. Thali in India means “Platter.” Maharaja Bhog offers “THE BEST” Thali experience in Houston. The food is full of flavor, fresh, and the service is exceptional. Check them out! maharajabhog.com
