A quick weekend getaway to Houston to see family also meant indulging in the finest local grub Texas had to offer.

We sampled everything from succulent, unpretentious BBQ at backcountry, folding-chair decorated barbecue joint, Rudy’s to sinfully baked fresh bread and juicy Angus steaks at Taste of Texas, Mexican-inspired chow at Escalante’s, and Italian gelato at Paciugo’s Gelateria.

Here are some of our favorite shots…

Best crab and shrimp enchilada ever. Don’t care if the shot doesn’t do it justice. It was on cheesy point.

That black cherry gelato had my name all over it. I had to pay homage with two separate visits in three days.

And finally, 16 ounces of pure unadulterated bliss.
