What I Ate: Reviews, Fourth of July and a quickie Houston trip

Posted By on Mon, Jul 7, 2014 at 11:45 AM

Short work weeks make for long food weekends. Fourth of July included stops at Bakery Lorraine for red, white and blue macs, a buttermilk pie and later ice pops and grilled miscellany at a friend's backyard shindig.

Not content with that, I made my way to Houston for a friend's birthday and included stops at Saint Arnold's Brewery (where I ran into beergal, Nicole George!), spicy ramen at Goro & Gun, fabulous mezcal drinks at The Pastry War and a visit to Bellaire for all kinds of Asian treats.

Whew. Follow me on Instagram for more food porn: @JessElizarraras.
