HOUSTON, TX - It's no surprise that Houston's cuisine sector is a melting pot of cultures. It's a big hit with tourists and locals alike. While Houston's Texas-Mexican cuisine is well-known, it also provides a range of cuisines from Central and South America. From tacos to flaky empanadas, you'll find them all in the city.

Airline Drive/Heights

This part of the city is famed for its vegetable shops, which trace back to the 1940s. It is also home to marketplaces, eateries, and bakeries that are worth a visit. It's worth noting that the Houston Farmers Market, which was once known as Caninos Vegetables, is a great place to buy fresh produce and Latin American products, including anything from chiles to tropical fruits.

Are you in the game for some Mexican seafood? Enjoy ceviches and micheladas at Connie's Seafood, a Houston staple since 1979.

Downtown/EaDo/East End

There's no better place to have your first taste of fajitas than at Ninfa's on Navigation restaurant on Navigation Boulevard, East End. Founded in 1973, this taqueria has a rich history and provides some of the greatest fajitas and margaritas in the area.

West Houston/Westchase

West Houston offers a wide variety of Latin American and Caribbean dining alternatives, making it difficult for customers to decide where to dine. Mi Pueblito Restaurant sits on Richmond Avenue, just before the Beltway, and serves Colombian food. At The Original Marini's Empanadas in Westchase, you may tuck into delectable Argentinian empanadas.

Have a delicious Venezuelan arepa at Gusto Gourmet in Montrose. Pastel de yuca, a mashed potato dish with cheese and chicken in the middle, and pasticho, Venezuelan-style lasagna are also on the menu. As a bonus, Mama Rosa's Pupuseria, a family-run restaurant in Hillcroft, serves delicious Salvadoran food.
