    • Authentic Malaysian menu
    • Delicious steamed chicken and chicken rice 
    • Sweet and crispy roti


    • Flavorless char koay teow 
    • Fatty beef satay 

    We heard that PappaRich brings the flavors of Malaysia to Houston with its spicy halal dishes and other mouthwatering delicacies. Some went as far as to mention that PappaRich’s roti is somewhat sweeter and crispier than roti served elsewhere… so we knew we had to try it out. 

    When we first walked into PappaRich, we liked how kind the front hostess was and how we did not have to wait long for a table. We were seated within thirty minutes despite the place being busy. 

    The menu was extensive and filled with authentic Malaysian dishes. We couldn’t even read most of the menu items—one of us pointed out that it’s an indication of how authentic they were, fair point—and the prices reflected it. 

    The waitress we had was kind enough to explain some of the menu items and recommend popular choices that other customers regularly ordered. So we ordered chicken satay, beef satay, roti canai with curry chicken, Pappa char koay teow, Pappa chicken rice, and steamed chicken. 

    Although, the char koay teow arrived before anything else on the menu. We didn’t like how they used thin, flat rice noodles. Moreover, there wasn’t anything particularly memorable about the taste. 

    Next, the Pappa chicken rice and steamed chicken came out. We liked how we could taste the flavors left behind from the broth, the chicken boiled in. 

    Additionally, the bean sprouts were soft, and the rice was not mushy. 

    When the beef and chicken satay came out, we liked the extra peanut dipping sauce that came with it. While the beef satay had some flavor, we didn’t like how there was more fat than actual meat. 

    The chicken satay also retained the flavors from the peanut sauce better. 

    Lastly, we tried their roti canai. Even though you could order it plain or with other toppings, we ordered ours with chicken curry. 

    The chicken curry we chose for our toppings balanced out the sweetness of the roti. As for the chicken curry, it was mildly spicy but flavorful, with tender, juicy chicken.

    • Informative staff
    • Endless hot pot ingredients
    • Tasty and fresh vegetables


    • Oily chicken broth
    • Fatty and unfresh beef brisket

    Many told us Chongqing Chicken Pot brings a refreshing new approach to eating hot pot. True to the claims, Chongqing Chicken Pot takes all the exciting things about eating traditional hot pot and makes it modern. 

    A chef did not prepare our meal for us at Chongqing chicken pot. Rather, how tasty our meal turned out depended on how well we cooked. 

    The moment we sat down, one of the staff members handed us menus, which explained to us the entire cooking process. We also liked how the wait staff answered any other additional questions we had. 

    On the menu at Chongqing Chicken Pot, we liked how we could choose from various types of meat, seafood, broths, noodles, rice, and vegetables. While the total cost was expensive, the quantity of ingredients made the price worth it. 

    They promptly brought out the broth and platters of brisket beef, pork, and seafood, along with all of the vegetables we ordered. However, we had to remind the wait staff to bring our noodles and rice.  

    We liked how fresh the vegetables not only looked in appearance but tasted as well. We also liked the different meat selections, except for their brisket beef, which was a little fatty and didn’t smell so fresh. 

    As for the broths we tried, we had chicken broth and plain vegetable broth. The chicken broth was drenched in oil, so we asked someone to drain some of the oil for us as it was not to our taste.

    • Tasty and savory corn dogs 
    • Budget-friendly 


    • Overwhelming “dirty fries” 
    • Plastic-like mozzarella 

    Two Hands Cooking offers a wide selection of menu items and lets customers create corndogs by picking and choosing their fillings and toppings. At least, that’s what we were told. 

    From the moment we walked into Two Hands Cooking, the aroma of frying oil permeated the store. We scanned Two Hands Cooking and noticed the open kitchen behind the register was where the sizzling oil aroma came from. 

    Although Two Hands Cooking is not your typical luxurious restaurant, we liked how customers can watch as their orders are prepared from start to finish, from battering to frying and seasoning. 

    Regarding the menu, everything is under $5, making it perfect for budget eaters. 

    We first tried their signature corn dog. It was tasty and deep-fried until golden brown, and the savory corn dog paired well with the sweet ranch sauce served on the side. 

    Moreover, we also tried their Injeolmi Corn Dog, which was rolled in roasted Injeolmi rice cake powder, and finished with a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk. We liked the sweetness of the fried batter on the outside, but the plastic-like mozzarella inside the sausage threw off our taste buds. 

    Furthermore, we ordered their Crispy Rice Corn Dog. The corndog’s rice-crisp coating made it even crispier than your standard fried rice flour snack—which we liked. 

    For our side dish, we chose the “dirty fries,” which were not fries at all. Rather, these were tater tots overwhelmingly seasoned with Two Hands Cooking trademark “dirty sauce” and Hot Cheetos powder.

    • Appealing Vietnamese fusion cuisine
    • Sweet and salty Mi Go 
    • Flavorful Mi Ga


    • Chewy chicken gizzards
    • Salty chicken feet 
    • Rushed service

    Migo is a Vietnamese and Asian fusion counter-service restaurant serving customers some of Houston’s best Viet noodle bowls and Vietnamese coffee. 

    As Migo is seemingly popular, there may be a wait, but those who have tried their Vietnamese specialties have raved that the wait was well worth it. Well, at least that’s what we heard. 

    First of all, we liked how the atmosphere resembled what a small eatery would look like in Vietnam. 

    Although they are a smaller restaurant, we liked how they remain true to Vietnamese cuisine—for the most part, that is. We also liked how despite a long line behind us at the counter, the cashier took the time to explain some of the different items on their menu. 

    To start, we had chicken gizzards, roasted chicken feet, and sauteed Vietnamese corn as our appetizers. While we did not like the chewy chicken gizzards and salty chicken feet, the sauteed Vietnamese corn was savory. 

    Additionally, the coffee with salted egg yolk was a little watery. Regardless of that, it had good flavor.

    For our main meal, we tried their dry Mi Ga, a specialty dish consisting of dry egg noodles, free-range chicken, and a soft-boiled egg marinated in a special sauce. The chicken was flavorful and fully cooked and complimented the saucy egg noodles.

    We also had their original Mi Go, which was similar to the Mi Ga, except it had broth and pork instead of chicken. The broth in the bowl of Mi Go was the perfect combination of sweet and salty, and we could even taste the subtle addition of lemongrass. 

    We didn’t like, though, how we were pressured to leave the table as soon as possible to make way for other customers.

    • Tender chicken tenders
    • KTasty spicy fried chicken 
    • Savory pork kimbap 
    • Sweet watermelon soju


    • Stale regular fried chicken

    Soho Chicken Houston claims to be a Korean restaurant that serves fresh and authentic Korean fried chicken made in-house. Many also told us about their collection of legit Korean soju available for customers to order. 

    Depending on the time you go to Soho Chicken, it can be challenging to find parking. Do note, however, there is a parking garage to the left of Bellaire Food Street with plenty of spaces.

    We first liked how our server greeted us enthusiastically as we walked in and made numerous recommendations. Furthermore, the atmosphere at Soho Chicken resembled a Kpop sports bar. 

    We also liked the fact that on the menu, there were various dishes not limited to their classic Korean fried chicken. But the prices are a bit on the pricier side. 

    We first started off with a small order of chicken tenders, and we ordered the soy garlic flavor. We liked how tender the chicken was, which paired well with their house spicy sauce.

    Next, we had their spicy and regular fried chicken. Although the spicy fried chicken was tasty with every bite, their normal fried chicken tasted stale—like an old batch. 

    We ordered the spicy pork kimbap for our side dishes, which was the perfect balance of spicy and savory. 

    We also sampled their watermelon soju, which was a bit on the sweet side. It was also aesthetically pleasing as it was served in half a watermelon.
