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.

 

 

 

 

Pink's Pizza (Houston)

Rating: A+

I thought I "LOVED" Z Pizza until I tried Pink's.  Their flavors have fun and funny names and great flavor combinations. I tried the Deuce and the Lazy Lasagna. Both were so amazing. I want to try a bunch of the other flavors too.  Definitely go here asap. On a side note, I used Doordash.com to order it, and it was definitely the easiest delivery service I've ever used. I did it all on my phone and used apple pay to pay.  I would definitely recommend that as well.

 

"The Deuce" - goat cheese, mozzarella, spinach, portobella mushrooms, roma tomatoes, roasted garlic, and pesto sauce"

This was SO flavorful and fresh.  I don't know how they did it, but it's amazing.

 

"The Lazy Lasagna" - beef, italian sausage, ricotta, mozzarella cheese, pizza

I was surprised how good this was and how fresh it tasted.  Their crust is the right thickness and has a great flavor.  It doesn't taste "gluten free" at all. Their tomato sauce is really flavorful as was the greek salad I ordered from there (forgot to take a picture of course). Go try it.  No offense to Z Pizza, but if I had to choose one, I would definitely do Pink's.
