On the Road Eats: South of Houston

I have something to share with you.

I drove to Galveston once to go on a cruise.  We stopped at a buffet that my husband heard about for true southern cooking.  I am not a fan of buffets(seen too many people take food and then change their mind and put it back) but I took one for the team.  On this trip, I was headed to a meeting in League City and asked people on Chowhound where to eat during my trip(no buffets for me!)

Nobi Public House

According to one Chowhounder, he loves the noodles and his daughter loves the bahn mi.  I love asian food so I knew I must try this spot.  The gentleman at the table  next to me said i MUST order my dish with a fried egg.  Vermicelli(room temperature) with grilled pork, fried egg, nuts, and an egg roll.  They had dozens of craft beers on tap and if it had been after working hours, I may have indulged in a blonde ale.  This is a solid spot to try if down in the Webster area!

Perry’s Steakhouse & Grill
Perry’s is here in Dallas but for some reason I have never been there.  I have been to Nick & Sam’s, Pappas, The Palm, Eddie V’s, Bob’s, Al Biernat’s…..but never Perry’s. So I decided to visit Perry’s in Clear Lake for an early dinner in their bar.  This was the original Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille which opened in 1993 after adding tables at the Perry family’s meat market proved successful.  The bar has a great social hour menu and I didn’t want anything too heavy since I still needed to head back to Hobby for my flight.  I started with the tenderloin sliders with onions and mushrooms(no cheese for me) and sweet potato fries, then ended with the white chocolate cheesecake with a blueberry compote. Perfect amount of food, especially after the lunch I had at Nobi and it was a straight shot to the airport.   And yes, I will be going to Perry’s in Dallas for a great steak dinner with my husband.  The service was excellent, the atmosphere(in the bar) was mellow(exactly what I needed after a long day of travel with one flight to go) and quite a few menu items, specifically the filet with creamed spinach and lobster mac and cheese, are calling my name!

Had a couple hours to kill before a meeting and lunch.  I found Unexpected Interiors on Main Street in League City and they had gifts, art and jewelry.  I think there is a reason my husband doesn’t like when I have any time to spare on a business trip…I shop.  Check out the new wrap bracelet I found!
