Houston is a real foodies dream.

These are the 6 best places in Houston, Texas to indulge in or your cheat meal.

I commend you for following your diet and nutrition plan well but, like all of us there are cheat days or cheat meals. I know when I’m actively dieting, I always build in a cheat meal or cheat day. It helps keep my life regular. Who can say no to cheese fries or ice cream forever, after all? Not me.

In this article I'm going to go over 6 places in Houston, Texas to indulge in your cheat meal. You will definitely want to try each place in this roundup! Here we go.

BlkMktbirria-Houston, Texas

Birria tacos are a trending food that started going viral last year in 2020. These are deliciously seasoned wet tacos filled with beef traditionally and dipped into a spicy, brothy sauce. It’s like a french dip sandwich kind of but with tacos.


This place BlkMktbirria (that’s their Instagram handle, by the way) does red birria well!

They are known for their crazy cheese pull (when you pull apart food and it reveals stringy, gooey delicious cheese). And if you want to see their menu and see the reaction of people who try their food, head to their Instagram or Tik Tok accounts to be blown away. You'll surely leave with your mouth watering.

KAU BA- 2502 Dunlavy St Suite B, Houston, TX 77006

Featured on Netflix’s Ugly Delicious and Street Food, you want to try this Vietnamese restaurant called KAU BA. It's Vietnamese-Cajun fusion done so well!


They are known for their delicious and crazy cocktail drinks. They have awesome lunch specials and you've got to try the “lunch box.”

Sugar Room- 5120 Washington Ave, Houston, TX 77007


This place is a bakery turned speakeasy. You have got to check it out to know what I mean. It’s business in the front, party in the back, literally.

The front of house looks like a regular family bakery filled with macarons, cupcakes and other delicious treats. Head to the back through the red lit passageway and be taken to a dimly lit bar/lounge area that has got a total vibe of its own!

It’s the perfect cozy spot for date night and a fun place to head to with your friends.

Twisted Grilled Cheese- 2829 Chimney Rock Rd, Houston, TX 77056


They are known for, you guessed it, their grilled cheese sandwiches.

If you’re a sandwich lover and especially if you enjoy grilled cheese, hit this place up!

They also have delicious drinks, waffle fries, seasoned onion rings, and a host of delicious gourmet sandwiches.

Rosie Cannonball’s Patio Bar- 1620 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77006


Smore’s anyone? Perfect for a date spot with you and your partner. A comfy, cozy patio bar that feels quaint and will make you feel at home. Fire pits, under the stars, delicious food and tasty drinks galore.

Try the Irish coffee and if you go during happy hour, 20% off!

Traveler’s Table- 520 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77006

Breakfast is probably my favorite meal of the day. It hasn't always been this way but now I definitely appreciate this meal and as much as I love breakfast I think I equally enjoy brunch. It's the perfect excuse to mix savory and sweet foods with cocktails and it's acceptable.


For seafood lovers, get the blue crab eggs benedict. The Louisiana fried chicken and grits is a customer favorite too and the Kimchi fried rice with short rib and jasmine rice? Chef’s kisses.

Check this place out.
