Here is the Houston Singles’ Guide Examiner’s top hotspot of the week:
With its highly eclectic and free-spirited ambiance and staff, Onion Creek reminds this former UT girl of what it feels like to Keep Austin (or Houston) Weird. Located at 3106 White Oak Blvd., this quirky, yet oh-so-scrumptious restaurant is open from 6:30 am to 2 am.
This funky restaurant might seem as though they serve fast food, but they merely serve their food fast!
Their menu offers an array of healthy items for those of you in need of reducing your junk-food intake, as well as old classics. Their sandwich and burger meals, however, do not have the option of ordering a side of fries. For those of you adamant fry lovers, keep in mind that although fries are derived from potatoes, the grease that they have been fried in makes them entirely un-healthy and non-heart friendly. My suggestion for your side instead of cardiovascularly-challenged french fries? If you aren’t in the mood for salad, and if you don’t love potato chips, then try out their potato salad – it is unbelievably tasty!
So, if you are in the mood for a nutritious & tasty breakfast after a quick 3-mile run up & down Heights Blvd., or if you and your buddies are craving a mid-afternoon beer, Onion Creek has something to offer everyone. You can even check out their weekly Saturday Farmer’s Market from 8 am to noon. Stroll through the market while sipping on coffee.
Not sure what to order? Onion Creek’s Med Plate – with spinach & artichoke hummus with feta salad and toasted pita bread – followed by either their tuna salad sandwich or their BLT would be a fabulous recommendation! Do you love chai tea? I know I do, and Onion Creek has some of the best Chai Tea ever!
Don’t forget to dine at all of the four Creek restaurants – Onion Creek, Cedar Creek, Dry Creek, and the recently opened Canyon Creek. Dry Creek, located in an old petrol station, is the Creek Group’s burger joint and it is BYOB!
