Houston, the 4th most populous city in the country, serves as the largest cultural hub in Texas. This immense port city is home to several energy giants, providing thousands of jobs that draw in folks from all around the world. Because of this, Houston's food culture includes richly diverse restaurants and food trucks that serve authentic cuisine from across the globe.
With fleets of food trucks serving the streets, local vendors are driven to craft menus that stand out among the competition. Fortunately, this leads to Houston having one of the most distinguished food truck scenes in the world. A few of the crowd favorites include Bernie's Burger Bus for their wholesome, made-from scratch take on classic-style burgers, Nom Mi Street for their delicious Vietnamese fusion sandwiches, tacos, gyros, and more, Happy Hour Food, which serves the perfect grub for when you need to refuel from a night on the town, and Kurbside Eatz, which offers delicious Asian-inspired comfort food creations, such as Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls, and much more.
Bayou City boasts one of the most celebrated museum districts in the world, with over twenty galleries, museums, community centers, etc, that attract thousands of visitors from all walks of life, on a daily basis. As folks wander through these establishments, allowing their minds and souls to feast upon an influx of new knowledge eventually their appetites are piqued as well. Thankfully, several of the city's best food trucks are conveniently parked close by, such as Offbeat Eatz, The Cuban Spot, and Cousins Maine Lobster, serving scrumptious offerings that are simply best enjoyed picnic-style on the soft grass of Hermann Park.
