Devouring Houston: Exploring Houston One Bite at a time

Houston has so many incredible food establishments...from sumptuously designed restaurants to fun storefronts selling gourmet cookies. From Mexican Food Carts to the Best BBQ in the World. And...I want to expore it one bite at a time.

La Michoacana Meat Market

You've seen them - La Michoacana Meat Markets.  They are all over Houston.   So, I went to see what one is all about.   Founded in Houston, the markets cater to the Hispanic Culture offering meats, produce and other items specific to the Hispanic Demographic.  They are authentic.  The real deal.

Hot prepared foods

From hot, freshly prepared items to a butcher counter to fresh produce, the markets do offer an array of items.  The produce is specific and plenty in the areas of peppers, onions, limes, avocados, cilantro, tomatoes, etc.  

Fresh Produce

The Butcher offers everything from chicken to skirt steak to ribs, sausage, and wings and more.    You can also find interesting spices and condiments for cooking such as nuts, coconut, chili pods, and dried whole shrimp!


From the hot foods counter, we ordered the #1 Combo: Tacos de Harinay ensalad, which came with a 20 ounce soda. The two beef tacos were not large, but had great flavor, although a touch dry.   I enjoyed  the taco plate.  However, the establishment was not clean, at all.  And, my biggest concern was the restroom.  No toilet paper.  No soap.  And, no towels.  So, I'm not exactly sure how clean the food handlers were.  Ewwww!
