Beckoning to the diner amidst city lights, Mandarin Hunan stands in the heart of Houston. Windows from top to bottom on almost every wall let in the city's brilliance, a welcoming sight after a hard day's work and before a Friday night theater performance. Chinese delicacies include sesame chicken, hunan beef and walnut shrimp. For a spicy entrée, you might venture to try Four Delights of Kung Pao - shrimp, beef, scallops, chicken and peanuts in a hot pepper sauce.

A speakeasy door reminds you of the history of this cafe. Located in the heart of the downtown warehouse district, it has been around since the 1940s. The patio out back is a wonderful spot to kick back and relax after a grueling day. Local bands play on a small stage for your entertainment. Typical Tex-Mex dominates the menu. Sink your teeth into seasoned and tender beef fajitas or a hearty beef, bean and cheese burrito.
Planning a road trip from Houston to Austin or vice versa? Start early, and whatever you do, don't eat breakfast before departure. Your trip should absolutely be planned around this Central European/Central Texas bakery, which you can't miss due to the huge pear on the sign facing Houston. Hruska means pear in both the Czech and Slovak languages. The decisions are tough in this hugely popular small town car stop. The Pan Sausage and Sauerkraut Kolache (unbelievable bread pocket), native to Texas by way of Central Europe, is lose-your-mind-good. Moreover, everything goes great with fresh coffee for the road. - Adam Rosen
