I’ve been to this incredibly popular hotspot several times now because it’s such a great place to go to for fresh, healthy and very tasty food. And as the name already suggests, everything on the menu is prepared with local ingredients.
Local Foods has two restaurants in Houston; one in Rice Village and one in Upper Kirby. Both locations have a modern interior, vibrant atmosphere and an open kitchen so you can see how all this delicious food is prepared. The menu differs slightly per location, but both serve sandwiches and salads that can be combined with different soups or sides.
The Market Veggie Sandwich is definitely a must-try if you go to the one in Rice Village. And as you get to choose two sides with every sandwich, I tend to go combine it with the yummy Quinoa and Tuscan Kale salad. Tip: it might be wise to ask for a doggy bag up front because the portions are generous and you don’t want to waste any of this tasty food.
