B-Day @ RA Sushi

Happy B-lated to me! Myself and a handful of girlfriends headed to RA Sushi, City Centre location in order to celebrate. Thanks to my super power senses I could smell the mango concoction my friend was drinking in front of me the entire time but alas….it was an alcoholic beverage and being that I am 7 months pregnant I had to refrain. I indulged in Edamame for starters, and signature dishes Viva Las Vegas Rolls and Crazy Monkey Rolls (I shared). I was really looking forward to our night at City Centre not only because of the wonderful food and great laughs but I love the location. It is so much closer to my home (North Houston), you’re surrounded by young people during the night but not too young so that you feel like an elder and everything is in close proximity, there’s parking etc.; I guess at my age (27) I don’t have the desire to head anywhere that involves fighting for parking or walking long distances, I need everything to be in close proximity. I love going there during the day and watching my son run around, go to the toy store, go shopping, grab a bite to eat. It’s perfect. Located near an extremely desirable neighborhood, Bunker Hill, it was definitely a great development for the Houston area. 

Amazingly, Delicious Colombian Cuisine: El Rincon Paisa



Located near Pine Forest on Hwy 6, El Rincon Paisa is exactly that; a quaint, shelter of delicious Colombian cuisine that I have been frequenting on a weekly basis to my dismay.  I try to avoid the thought of their delicious, “best in town” Empanadas but being that they truly are the best in town, I can’t. A perfect mix of meat and potato found in the most splendid flaky and crisp texture ever! How do I balance out this indulgent meal? By adding a side order of plantains with queso! Delicious! How do I reason with myself into accepting this as an acceptable weekly meal? My son loves the empanadas! It’s the only form of meat and potatoes that he will eat………a mom’s gotta do, what a mom’s gotta do! Visit El Rincon Paisa, you will NOT be disappointed, further incentive needed? They have fresh squeezed juices to go with your morning empanadas!

Ocean's Ceviche

Now that I am a busy realtor, mother, and wife, I no longer look forward to late nights that involve unhealthy amounts of alcohol; I now long for the nights consisting of early bedtimes and DVR recordings of my favorite trashy, realty TV shows. Every now and then I like to spice things up with a girls night out which includes good food and drinks. My favorite locale lately has been Oceans Ceviche. I’ve been on a crazy ceviche kick lately and this place has amazing dishes! The portions might not fill a more heartier guest but if you partake in an appetizer, fish ceviche, and top it off with a fabulous desert (Tres Leches Cake) you should be more than satisfied!:) The Margarita drinks are magnificent; I recommend the Blackberry flavor….yum! Not only are you indulging in delicious foods, the dining atmosphere is perfect. I always choose to dine outside, yes, even in this hot Houston weather. I typically go for a late dinner, so the scorching sun is setting, the patio lights are lit, and I can relax and stare off into the water features if I so wish…..I love humid, Houston nights.
