Hybrid that it is, brunch is the perfect time to trot out dishes that straddle two meals: burgers with fried eggs, cheddar biscuit pot pies, bacon and egg calzones, and more. See the gallery of non-traditional brunch dishes »

When I was a child, my parents liked to haul the family across country to well-advertised beach vacation spots, and so I've seen the best of Florida and southern California, Hawaii and the French Riviera. My mother's travel plans, however, were always created on the premise that actual beach lounging wastes precious vacation time, so in between swimming with dolphins, souvenir shopping, dessert buffets, and posing for photos there was never a chance to do what I really wanted, which was to flop down onto the sand with a good book and extra sunblock and just be by my lazy self. Once I started traveling alone I could have taken things into my own hands, but somehow I always wound up landlocked—rather than the trusty trio of surf, sand, and sun, my trips seemed to involve nauseating bus rides at high velocity on the edges of precipitous cliffs and trekking through red dust to pick at palatial termite mounds. Exciting, yes, and edifying for the soul, but still no trip to the beach.
So going to a Dominican seaside resort for an extended weekend seemed like exactly the vacation I had, without realizing it, wanted and needed during the entirety of my adult life. I stepped onto a plane one morning out of the depths of a drizzly New York morning and a painless four hours later was discharged into a landscape brimming with glorious jungle greens, turquoise waters, and unclouded azure sky. I felt like a just-planted Dorothy in Oz, having left behind a dreary monochrome world of grey concrete and finding myself suddenly in front of a view so vibrantly hued I had the sensation of rediscovering the world in Technicolor.

Houston is the most dynamic culinary destination in the country. It's also a city that is close to my heart. It opens your mind, your thoughts and your soul—all through food. Many cultures thrive here: Vietnamese, Thai, Salvadorian, Nigerian, you name it. I am asked all the time, "Did you travel a lot?" And the answer is no—I got to experience global flavors by exploring the streets of my own city. Some of my best moments in Houston have happened when I got off of the beaten path and headed for family-run restaurants, where people were willing to show me what they know. Many of those places are listed here. I hope that you come and visit them, and enjoy seeing Houston the way I see it. See a dozen things to do in Houston
