On a food tour of his hometown of Houston, James Beard Award–winning chef Justin Yu reveals where to find the best banh mi, to-die-for tater tots, and a savory shrimp BLT. (And don’t miss Yu’s own restaurant, Theodore Rex, which made Texas Monthly’s list of Best New Restaurants for 2018.)
In this series, we visit a different Texas city each month to go on a video tour with an in-the-know local. In these videos, we celebrate classic dives and explore new shops and off-the-beaten-path gems. Past tours include Fredericksburg with blogger Katie Turpin, Dallas with Rachel Lindsay of The Bachelorette, BMX star Aaron Ross’s guide to Austin, Mike Casey’s King William neighborhood in San Antonio, and Forth Worth with the Block family.
