   What to Eat in Houston: 8 Iconic Foods

I love Houston sign at 8th Wonder Brewing, Houston, Texas.

Houston is America’s most diverse city, and—in not unrelated news—it’s increasingly touted as one of the country’s best cities for food. And yet it still flies under the radar for many people. Perhaps the city sprawl frightens them away, or the prospect of having to drive (a minimum of) 20 minutes to get pretty much anywhere. But that’s a small price to pay to experience some of the best this dynamic city has to offer.

In Houston, not only does the great diversity make for lots of variety in the restaurant scene, but the city’s special brand of colliding cultures has also created a perfect storm of culinary innovation, of unapologetic riffing on local tradition, that’s unwittingly beget essential new dishes—new cuisines even. It’s an exciting and effortless fusion of cultures informed by precisely who is doing the cooking and where they come from, with the essence of Texas sprinkled throughout. Incredibly, exploring the food here is like witnessing the birth of new local foods, something we typically associate with traditional dishes that have been around a long time.
