The blog Black Food Bits, a group of Houston food bloggers with a focus on black food, are pointing out the Houston restaurants that are often overlooked in Houston.
“The Houston restaurants are some of the most overlooked in the city,” said Brittany Williams, the group’s executive director.
“We feel like there’s a lot of hidden gems that we haven’t even found yet, so we want to give them a fair shot.”
The bloggers say they’re inspired by restaurants that have been on their radar for a long time, but have been overlooked because they are not local to Houston.
The Houston Chronicle has an article on restaurants with the word “local” in their name, and many have been in the works for years.
“We’ve been working on our Houston blog for a year now, and the idea was to get a look at restaurants that were underrepresented in Houston,” said Williams.
Houston’s black population is growing at a rapid pace.
Houston is now home to more than 6 million people of color, making it the most diverse city in the United States.
The city also has a thriving food culture that draws in visitors and locals alike.
“Houston is a great place to eat, but the restaurants we love are still largely hidden,” said William.
“Our goal is to help make sure those restaurants are recognized and celebrated in the Houston community,” she added.
The Houston restaurant blog, which will also be launching a new website called Houston Food Blogs, is looking for bloggers to join the team.
They’re looking for the best black food bloggers who can write about the best foods they’ve eaten.
The blog will also feature Houston-area restaurants and the Houston-based food blog, Foodie, that focuses on foodies in the region.
