August is a month of travel for me, luckily I have the best house sitters in the world but I am still going to miss those dogs. Things I will not miss include 100+ weather, work, driving, and going to meetings! Hooray for me!
Travel stated by going to Houston this weekend where I finally tried salt toasted tofu in China TownIt was salty spicy and delicious and I want to eat it right now. We also ordered “hollow green vegetables with garlic sauce” and spent the entire time leading up to getting the food discussing what hollow green vegetables they would be. It turned out they were water spinach, something I had never had but was hollow, green, and delicious! Too bad I don’t remember the name of the restaurant. That is some shoddy blogging my friends!
Later we went to the Hobbit Cafe which is all Lord of the Rings themed.
Our waiter looked like he must be a hobbit but I didn’t take his picture to show ya’ll because it just seemed like it would be taking weird to a whole new level. I mean, who takes pictures of their waiter? The hobbit cafe is very veg friendly but I decided I wanted a burger because they were hobbit made. The thing is, I find it more than a little hard to believe that a hobbit would make a burger so large, I know they have huge appetites, but they are just so little and this monster was way too big for me, a fully grown human.The sweet potato fries were dope though
Oh man, I wish I’d eaten at Hobbit Cafe when I was in Houston last year–that burger is making me hungry!
YUM. Looks so delicious!
How fun! I never knew Houston had a Hobbit Cafe! The salt tofu looks great… I also never knew H-town had a Chinatown… and I’ve only lived in Texas for 17 years!
Holy crap! That burger is huge. WOw!
OK, now I’m starving. I want those sweet potato so bad I can practically smell them from here.
