Corner Table (Houston)

Rating: A

I can't believe there's a restaurant in Houston that specializes in Paleo and gluten free cuisine AND tastes amazing AND is presented beautifully.  I LOVE this place. Corner table is beautifully decorated with really cool chandeliers and an upscale vibe, but there's nothing pretentious about it.  The only thing I didn't like was that it smelled kind of old like your great-grandmothers house (or at least mine). I wish I could have tried more things on the menu, but I will definitely be back.  I would have to say my favorite item was the Kale and Quinoa Salad, but I loved everything.

 

KALE & QUINOA
warm kale, blistered tomatoes, organic quinoa and mozzarella, finished with balsamic reduction

SOOOOOO good!

 

 

CURRY CAULIFLOWER
smooth puree of cauliflower, leeks and garlic,drizzled with coconut milk and cilantro

I loved how healthy this was.  I'm trying to eat more turmeric and since I've learned that you can't absorb the turmeric without pepper, this seemed like the perfect thing to order.

 

VEGETABLE LASAGNA
butternut squash noodles, zucchini, spinach,Portobello mushrooms and cashew ricotta

This presentation of this was so cute, and I loved the flavors.

 

 

 

 

True Food (Houston)

Rating: A+

True Food is 100% my favorite restaurant in Houston and pretty much every other location I've been to. I LOVE this place.  They use Andrew Weil's philosophy of medicinal food, and all of their food is great. I will definitely be going back.  This is what I can recommend from the menu:

 

  • Organic Tuscan Kale Salad (No croutons/Request Gluten Free. My favorite salad)
  • Mediterranean Chopped Salad
  • Farmer's Market Salad (Request Gluten Free)
  • Wild Mushroom Pizza (Add Truffle Oil. Request GF)
  • Inside Out Quinoa Burger (My favorite entree)
  • Grassfed Bison Burger (Request GF. GF Buns available)
  • Panang Curry (Another favorite of mine)
  • Street Tacos
  • Spaghetti Squash Casserole
  • Banana Chia Seed Pudding (AMAZING!!)

 

Gluten Free Wild Mushroom Pizza

I added Truffle Oil, and it was one of the decision I'm most proud of in my life. ;) You need to try this ASAP

This was another time I got the Mushroom Pizza (with the gluten free crust) and added truffle oil to it.

Banana Chia Seed Pudding

This is one of my favorite desserts I've ever had.  I would absolutely recommend getting this if you're ever at True Food
