How a Houston restaurant lost its soul
Posted February 09, 2019 07:51:00 It’s a familiar scene in any restaurant: a customer who wants to order and leave, but who’s too busy to wait for a table.
But this is a different Houston.
For one, this is the city where the hip-hop icon Lil B has been cooking since 2007.
He’s also been on the scene in the Bayou City since 2011, when he launched the first Houston-area restaurant, the aptly named Galveston.
Galvestons success has been matched only by the popularity of Lil B’s own restaurant, which opened a year ago.
“The first one that came up in Houston was called Lil B,” said Houston restaurateur and Houston-born Lil B superfan, Nicki B. “I was the first one who came to Houston, and that’s when we started to really hit it big.
The two men are not just known for their music, but also their cuisine, which is both delicious and inventive. “
Bubblegum B-Boy and Lil B opened their first restaurant in Houston, in 2016, just blocks from the Houston Astrodome.
“There’s a reason that Houstonians eat there.””
They make food that’s so amazing, and I mean that literally,” said Lil B, who has been a fan of the Houston restaurant scene since the early 1990s.
“There’s a reason that Houstonians eat there.”
The restaurant scene in Houston is very diverse, with several restaurants that are locally owned and run by people of color.
In 2016, the Houston Restaurant Association, an industry trade group, reported that there were more than 300 Asian restaurants in Houston.
Lil B and his co-owners, Joe and Lila Martinez, have been trying to expand their business and expand their menu to serve more Houstonians, as well.
The first Galvestonic opened on April 2, 2018.
It’s not just a neighborhood restaurant, but it’s a local-based business, and it’s also a great place to hang out with family, said Lil M. “You can come out and have a meal and be surrounded by your friends, and they’ll all be asking you, ‘How are you doing?
“We’re trying to spread the love to the people in Houston.” “
Galvestones success has brought out the best in Houston restaurants, he added. “

“People are coming from all over the place.
The people from all around the country, from New York to California, and from all different parts of the world are coming to eat here.”
Galvezes menu includes the famous Galvez steak, which has been the star of Lil M’s restaurants since he started in Houston in the mid-2000s.
Galvez has a reputation for being the most flavorful steak in Houston and his signature is the sauce called Galvez on top of the steak.
The sauce, which includes a lot more flavors than the steak, has become a must-have at Lil Ms restaurants.
“It’s something that’s hard to describe.
It takes a lot to describe it,” said B.L. “When you’re tasting it, you’re looking for that perfect combination of everything you want.
I like the idea of the sauce that’s on top.”
The restaurant is a hit at every table.
“Everything I eat is good,” said a woman in her late 20s named Lila.
“And I always have it on the side.
I always tell people that I love it.”
The women, who work at Galvez restaurants in Austin and Dallas, said they enjoy it for its authenticity.
“To me, it’s an authentic Galvez,” said Lila, who added that the Galvez is not just another steak, but a signature dish.
“For a lot Americans, it means something, it feels good.
I know it makes them feel good.
That’s why they love it.
It feels good.”
