Houston Eats: Molina’s and a Farmer’s Market

We had our first food adventure in Houston this week with some Tex-Mex and a fun trip to a farmer’s market with Nana.

Our first Texas Tex-Mex experience was at Molina’s Cantina at the Washington Avenue location. We chose this resturant because it popped up on numerous top resturant lists for the Houston area. It was known for the Jose Dip(queso), enchiladas, and Mexico City combo platter so we thought we’d give it a try!

We enjoyed our meal and had good service. Baby girl loved it too! We started with the famous Jose Dip and chips and salsa, I had the CW Special which included an enchilada and a taco al carbon and rice and beans. Nana went with with the Mexico City Platter, which was actually 2 plates of food. She had a taco, enchilada, tostada, a tamale and rice and beans. She thought she’d need a to-go bag, but some how everything on her plates disappeared.

After lunch we headed to a local farmer’s market at City Hall. We were catching the tail end of the market as things were wrapping up, but there were a handful of vendors. We purchased some fresh blueberries, a large cinnamon roll, and some cookies. This market had many food vendors and food trucks and would have been a great lunch stop if we hadn’t eaten already.
