Kenny & Ziggy’s

If you have seen the trailer for Deli Man, you would have seen Kenny & Ziggy’s. It is one of Houston’s culinary treasures and has also been featured on Food Network. A traditional Deli is unlike anything else – we were able to eat at the famous Carnegie Deli in New York last year, and Kenny & Ziggy’s lived up to that experience.

The menu is giant which is indicative of the size of the plates. We each order a sandwich (I went for the classic Pastrami), but we could have easily shared as it was just bread and a huge pile of meat. The food is definitely made with love and it is an experience to remember.

The restaurant is fairly large and can accommodate big groups, but is busy at lunch time (and maybe all the time). They also serve homemade pickles to accompany your meal.

Good Dog

At this point, I have eaten at Good Dog a few times. It started and continues as a food truck, but they expanded to a standing restaurant a couple of years ago. I’m not usually one to like mustard, pickles, or raw onions – most of the standard toppings on Hot Dogs – but this place changes my mind. All the hot dogs are top quality beef and the condiments are made in store (including the delicious Siracha Ketchup). They also have handmade chips and fries which are great for sharing. My current favorite is the Ol’Zapata. The jalapeno relish has turned me around to relish.

The restaurant itself is an old house but there is a fair amount of seating inside, and we’ve taken our dog to sit outside on the patio. There is not much parking, unfortunately. Overall, this is a place any age can enjoy. The menu has unique flavors, good for the adventurous or not so adventurous eaters.
