With a population of more than two million residents, hailing from a rich array of cultural backgrounds, Houston has what may well be one of the country’s most diverse and exciting culinary scenes. Though Tex-Mex cuisine has long been king here—you won’t find better fajitas, enchiladas, or chile relleños anywhere—that’s just the beginning in Houston. Palatial steakhouses stand cheek-to-jowl here with cozy Thai and Vietnamese eateries; Japanese-style noodle palaces abut cafes serving Cajun seafood and Indian curry; and burger joints share zip codes with James Beard Award-nominated restaurants. You’ll want to try it all, and you should—even if you have to put in extra hours at the gym when you get home.
