Last Sunday, 17 Houstonians boarded a bus outside the Whole Foods store in River Oaks, and set off of on a culinary adventure. Accompanied by Houston chefs Monica Pope and Bryan Caswell, we visited some of the places they like to go to eat. We got to talk with them on the bus and at the restaurants and a great time was had by all. Do I need to mention that we ate at four restaurants? Three of the four were gluten-friendly, and I have included photos from those three restaurants. We visited Les Givral, Vieng Thai, Sinh Sinh and Kasra Persian grill. I was able to eat mostly everything at Les Givral, Vieng Thai (watch out there is soy sauce in some of the items), and Kasra. It was a little more difficult at Sinh Sinh, which has some very beautiful dishes but most of them contain wheat in some form or another.
There will be other Culinary tours with other Houston chefs coming up. If you are interested in going on one of the tours, please visit Houston Culinary Tours.
