AB Road Eats: Houston


COFFEE

Blacksmith Coffee: There’s a reason why there’s a line almost out the door for this coffee. It’s good. They provided my last cortado on the Alton Brown Live tour.

BREAKFAST

Common Bond Cafe & Bakery: Down the street from Blacksmith is cafe where everyone in Houston seems to brunch on the weekends. I got a box of pastries to-go and was on a sugar high the rest of the day. Treat yourself to one of their chocolate chip cookies while you’re there.

LUNCH

Killen’s Barbecue: Pounds and pounds of meat. Their brisket was excellent … some of the best barbecue I’ve had on tour. 

AFTER-SHOW

Pho Binh: Open late on the weekends and recommended by Eater, this pho turned out to be just what I needed after weeks of touring. The broth was flavorful and the meat cooked perfectly.
